Jesse Marsch, Leeds manager

The American Jesse Marsh, the manager of the English Premier League Leeds, became known to the English football fans, as well as to the Europeans, for the unusually inspiring speech at the halftime of the match Liverpool - Salzburg in the Champions League in October 2020, when his team lost 0-3, at halftime it was 1-3, then managed to equalize at 3-3, and in the end, however, to lose 3-4. That speech was a demonstration of eloquence, leadership and fighting spirit, and his team then demonstrated his tactical mind and style of play with strong intensity, high pressure and a winning game.

Marsh will need all that, and even more to achieve the goal and avoid relegation with Leeds where he succeeded the Argentine Marcelo Bielsa. Marsh will be helped by the fact that he will inherit a club transformed from Bielsa, which is playing modern, advanced, fast football.

Unlike all managers in PL Marsh, he is an "Ivy League" student. It is a football college league in the USA played by eight top colleges. Even though they call it the Soccer League, believe me football is. He was in the ideal lineup as one of the 11 best players.

After a 14-year career as a midfielder spent entirely in the United States, Jesse Marsch born in Wisconsin retired in 2010 before devoting himself to coaching. His first role was as an assistant to Bob Bradley in the US national team. He first coached in Montreal before taking a three-year break, which included a six-month football break, to travel to 32 countries with his family, staying in hostels to expand his life prospects. In 2015, he had the most victories of any New York coach, which would take him to Europe to work as an assistant coach in Leipzig under Ralph Rangnick, who obviously had a major influence on Marsh's thinking about the game, as did on Jürgen Klopp, Thomas Tuchel and Ralph Hazenhutl. He describes Rangnik as a "genius". In an interview with Newsweek 2020, Marsh said: "I like my teams to play fast and aggressively, and Ralph has a lot of credit for that." Those experiences were evident when he worked in Salzburg, where he used a 4-4-2, or 4-2-3-1 formation designed for major upheavals and the dominance of high pressure. That helped him win two consecutive double crowns in Austria. Jesse Marsch became the first American to lead the club in the UEFA Champions League with Salsburg.

In Leeds, he found players who have adapted to such demands, learned to work hard in Bielsa training and with some of the most impressive running statistics. What is likely to differ significantly from Bielsa is its different approach and preference for more zone play in relation to the Argentine's unwavering belief in human-to-human play and extremely open play, two areas in which Leeds hopes to be able to fix the bad game in defense. In Marsh, Leeds could find another intelligent, caring, and humble manager who understands the need to dive into local culture.
