Leeds' boss reveals shocking detail about Bielsa

New Leeds coach makes honest assessment about departing boss Bielsa

March 3, 2022 By Oscar Rojas
Jesse Marsch will make his debut with the Peacocks this weekend against Leicester City.

This weekend, Jesse Marsch will become the third American tactician to work for a Premier League team, but if things had went the way he wanted them to, he would not have taken over as coach as Marcelo Bielsa's replacement.

Speaking in a press conference held earlier today, Marsch admitted that he urged team exec Victor Orta to keep former coach Bielsa around despite the string of results that prompted his exit. According to Marsch, there was a slight chance to keep him around prior to his arrival, and that possibility came through his own words.

"I felt he could have stayed. I was not prepared to become Leeds' coach two weeks ago, and I wanted Marcelo to end his term as coach on a high note with our fans. I did not want him to leave this way," Marsch stated.

The former RB Leipzig coach went on further and agreed to join Leeds once he realized the team needed a new approach to stay afloat.

"I wanted to share my thoughts with Victor Orta when I called him, but when I got here, I realized that the team was suffering because they were not getting things done," Marsch added.

The coach, who signed a contract with the Premier League side until 2025, is reportedly ready to establish a new set of tactics to help Leeds avoid relegation.

"Our main goal this time will be to find roads for us to keep playing in the Premier League," Marsch concluded.
