Leeds United head coach Jesse Marsch is perhaps under the most pressure of the Premier League bosses given the club’s present losing run. After all, the club has has gone eight matches without a victory, including four consecutive defeats. Marsch’s men suffered their latest loss against newcomers Fulham at the weekend.
Speaking ahead of their next fixture, Marsch proclaimed that he has never suffered this much in the sport. “I was 14 years a player and now 13 years a coach and I’ve never lost this much in my career. I’m sick of it,” stated the exasperated Marsch.
Marsch noted that Leeds is often in these games. However, the club fails to pull out results when it comes down to it.
“I’m tired of playing matches where we are in the match and in many cases better than our opponents and walking away with nothing,” continued the coach.
“I’m tired of not capitalizing on moments when we are the better team in matches and I’m tired of giving away goals too cheaply. And, I’m tired of not getting results we should be getting.”
Jesse Marsch seeks remedies to losing struggles
“I am trying to figure out which guys can be counted on at the highest level,” he also explained. “I need to find out which guys are ready to fight for everything so that in these next matches we can get the points we need.”
Nevertheless, times could get tougher for the coach. Leeds next travel to Anfield as they face perennial powerhouse Liverpool on Saturday. While the Whites do have a huge game against Bournemouth the following week, a difficult schedule ensues.
Following the Bournemouth match, Leeds then face Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, and Newcastle in their next three Premier League games. Spurs and City are some of the top teams in England, while Newcastle is currently sitting fourth in the standings.
Marsch only just took over the job at Leeds following the dismissal of Marcelo Bielsa in February. The American has managed to win just seven of the club’s 24 matches since his arrival earlier this year.
