After failing to stop the faltering team’s descent into the Premier League relegation zone, Jesse Marsch was fired as Leeds‘ manager on Monday.
After losing against Forest, Leeds supporters called for Marsch to be fired due to their team’s poor performance since their last victory in the Premier League on November 5.
After just one year in command at Elland Road, they got their wish just 24 hours later when the 49-year-old was stripped of his duties.
The announcement read, “Jesse joined the club in February 2022 and was crucial in ensuring the team’s survival in the Premier League on the final day of the previous season.
The statement continued, “The hiring process for a new head coach is underway, and we will keep fans informed over the next several days.
Leeds signed former Leipzig coach Marsch on a three-year deal to take over for the fired Marcelo Bielsa. Marsch leaves Leeds with his team in 17th place, just one point above the relegation zone on goal differential.
The positions of West Brom manager Carlos Corberan, former Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino, and former Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard have all been connected to Leeds.
