Jesse Marsch has been sacked as Leeds United manager following the defeat to Nottingham Forest over the weekend
The American took charge of Leeds in February 2022 and narrowly steered them clear of relegation last season thanks to a final-day win over Brentford at the GTech Community Stadium.

Improved performances were expected during the 2022/23 season, with the club having spent big in the summer to strengthen the squad. Those improvements, however, haven’t come to fruition.
Leeds accumulated a win percentage of just 29.73% during Marsch’s tenure, and the club now sit just outside of the relegation zone on goal difference.
The final straw for Leeds’ board proved to be their defeat to Nottingham Forest on Sunday – the club’s seventh Premier League game without a win.
