Pundit suggests when Leeds United will sack Jesse Marsch after source's reveal
Jesse Marsch will be sacked if Leeds United are in the relegation zone when the Premier League breaks up for the World Cup.
That’s according to former Hibernian striker Tam McManus, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the Whites boss’ future.
Marsch relieved pressure on his position at Elland Road by securing a 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday (29 October).
Sources told Football Insider in the build-up to the match (25 October) that the Whites boss may not retain his job beyond the World Cup if results did not improve.
The board were understood to be by compiling a shortlist of potential replacements for Marsch prior to the trip to Anfield.
McManus insists Marsch’s position is still at risk.

“You have to look at who is available and heat the club might be thinking,” McManus told Football Insider‘s Ben Wild.
“We don’t know what they are thinking at the moment. Who’s available at the moment? There aren’t a lot of good managers out there.
“I said before that maybe some clubs will look to make a change in that break but that win over Liverpool has really given Leeds something to think about.
“They have a few more games now and we have to see what happens. Has that result saved Marsch? Probably not.
“Can he make a difference in the rest of these games? That remains to be seen. We have to see where Leeds are in a few weeks.
“I can still see him going if Leeds are in the relegation zone at the break.”
