Leeds to rehire their old translator?

Jesse Marsh has been strongly backed by the hierarchy at Leeds United over the January transfer window and undoubtedly has a stronger squad than his predecessor, Marcelo Bielsa.  Although Marsh continues to speak of momentum building, Leeds have only won 2 of their last 12 league games.

Jesse has been questioned by many fans regarding his relentless optimism, however, results in the league are yet to correlate with the American’s positive outlook.

Following a recent loss to Aston Villa Jesse stated:

“This is for me our most complete performance that we have had since I have been here and the best example of how I believe our team can play. We now have something to attach ourselves to and a benchmark for how good we can be.” 

Despite Leeds’ efforts they lost this match 2-1 and conceded a goal within three minutes with a counterattack from their own corner. During this game, a number of the away Leeds fans were also heard chanting the name of former manager “Marcelo Bielsa” and also booed Marsh when he went over to clap the fans after full time.

Since the loss to Aston Villa, Leeds have had two positive results in the FA Cup, convincingly beating both Cardiff City and Accrington Stanley and earned a respectable draw against Brentford. However, Leeds are yet to register a must-needed win in the Premier League since November.

Leeds are facing fellow relegation contenders Nottingham Forest at the City Ground this Sunday, a match which is surely a must-win prior to back-to-back games with Manchester United.

The club owners have notably backed Marsh with a number of high-profile January signings and will be hoping Georginio Rutter, Max Wöber and Weston McKennie can finally give Jessie a result to shout about.
