Jesse Marsch sacked as Leeds United manager

Leeds United have fired manager Jesse Marsch after one year in charge.

Marsch was fired as the club was just one point above the relegation zone on goal difference.

The 49-year-old was appointed as Marcelo Bielsa’s successor in February 2022 and helped keep the club in the Premier League, which was secured with a dramatic last-day win at Brentford in May.

Marsch then oversaw more than £140 million in spending during the summer and January transfer windows, but Leeds remains at the bottom of the table in 17th place.

The 1-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest on Sunday was the American’s final game in charge, extending their Premier League winless streak to seven games.

Leeds also confirmed the departures of coaches Rene Maric, Cameron Toshack, and Pierre Barrieu.

“We would like to thank Jesse and his backroom staff for their efforts and wish them well for the future,” Leeds said in a statement.

“The process of appointing a new head coach is under way and we will continue to keep supporters up to date throughout the coming days.”
