Leeds expert fumes as Jesse Marsch set for extended ban - 'it's winding me up'
Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch will not be the last manager cited by the FA for speaking out against VAR this season.
That’s according to former Leeds United stopper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the Leeds manager’s antics during his side’s loss to Brentford.
The 48-year-old was shown a red card on 3 September for protesting when his side were denied a penalty for a challenge on Crysencio Summerville.
The FA confirmed on Tuesday (6 September) that he had been hit with a charge for “improper” language/behaviour in west London.
Marsch could be banned for one game as a result of his actions.
Kenny does not blame the American for losing his temper.

“It’s getting hard for managers to keep their mouth shut because the decisions are getting that bad,” Kenny told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.
“It’s more ridiculous by the week. All you will find is that more and more managers get fined. The decision that are being made, it used to just be human error.
“The referee wouldn’t see it and, tough, you deal with it. That is what used to happen. Now, these decisions are being watched 10 times.
“That’s on a television with 10 different angles and they still can’t get it right. It must be so frustrating for a manager.
“I’m glad I’m not playing these days because I would want to speak out about it. When it is a human error you can hold you hands up and say you didn’t see it.
“That’s not an excuse now. No wonder these managers are kicking off, these people’s jobs are on the line. They are never more than three or four weeks away from the sack.
“I get why managers are losing it. It’s winding me up.”
