Leeds United told not to sack Jesse Marsch after pundit's 'incredible' spot

Leeds United must back Jesse Marsch in January even if he remains on shakey ground with the club’s board.

That is according to Spurs expert John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.

Leeds United had gone eight games without a win from mid-August until the end of October – but Marsch oversaw wins against Liverpool and Bournemouth to lift his side to 15th in the table.

The Whites signed off for the mid-season World Cup break with a thrilling 4-3 away loss at Tottenham on Saturday (12 November).

Football Insider revealed that morning that Marsch is still on shaky ground at Leeds United despite the recent turnaround in form.

However, Wenham, who attended the Spurs v Leeds game, insists the Whites must continue to sign players who suit Marsch’s style.

“They have signed all of these players who Marsch clearly wanted,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“I think two of them came from his previous clubs in the summer. Then there is the suggestion that Leeds should sack him.

“You don’t start building a manager his own team then sack him before he can finish it. We have seen some really bright things from Leeds in the first half of the season.

“Yes, there have been some bad moments but this is the start of a journey. It would be nonsensical to sack Marsch after what, 15 games?

“How can you judge? The results might not be quite three yet but he’s just getting started. I can’t understand where these calls are coming from. I was impressed with how Leeds played against Spurs, the young talent they have there is incredible.

“You have more than half of the season left to go and literally two wins could change your fortunes completely.

“If they go into the relegation zone in March or April then maybe you can understand but they aren’t there yet.

“They have to keep him on and back him in January, they have to.”
