Marsch,Leeds part ways after recent negative results

Jesse Marsch has been sacked as Leeds head coach after one year in the job.

Marsch has been dismissed with the club only above the relegation zone on goal difference ahead of two Premier League meetings with Manchester United this week.

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

Marsch then oversaw more than £140m of spending across the summer and January transfer windows, but Leeds find themselves at the wrong end of the table in 17th place.

Leeds have announced Michael Skubala, Paco Gallardo and Chris Armas will coach the team until a replacement for Marsch is found, including for the Premier League game at Manchester United on Wednesday.

Skubala was named as the club's U21 head coach in 2022, Gallardo is the development coach, and Armas joined in January after previously working at Man Utd.

Marsch's final game in charge was the 1-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest on Sunday, which extended their winless run in the Premier League to seven matches.
