Jesse Marsch has admitted he was at one of many lowest factors of his soccer profession as he bids to halt Leeds’ slide down the Premier League.
Thursday evening’s 2-0 defeat at Leicester prolonged Leeds’ winless run to seven matches and a piece of their travelling followers booed them off the sphere on the King Power Stadium.
When requested if it was his hardest second in soccer, the previous New York Red Bulls, Salzburg and Leipzig boss stated: “For me? Yeah, pretty tough. But I knew coming to Leeds United was going to be difficult.
“I knew building it up to be a team in the Premier League that we thought could be successful was never going to be easy.
“But we’re going to stay steadfastly committed to each other, to the team, to our process and we’re going to find solutions.”
Next up for Leeds is in-form Fulham at Elland Road on Sunday and Marsch has urged Whites followers to unite behind his staff as they chase their first league win since August.
In response to a lacklustre show at Leicester, loud chants for former head coach Marcelo Bielsa had been heard within the away finish and Marsch feels that may have a adverse impact on his aspect.
“Yeah I think it does impact the players,” the American stated. “If it’s fair or not, it doesn’t really matter, they can express their opinion however they want.
“The only one I really heard that was bad was the one for Marcelo Bielsa and I’m OK with that. I’m OK with the fact that Marcelo is a club legend.
“I would hope that they’ve seen there’s been a lot of work done and we’ve worked really hard as a group, as a club, as a team to save our season last year and we’re going to do the same again, to find a way to be successful.”
Leeds have failed to attain in three of their final 4 matches and Marsch stated the primary aim at Elland Road in opposition to Fulham will probably be essential.
“Yeah, massive,” he added. “A good start, a confident start, a goal in general. We need goals. It would be massively important for us.
“Listen, I love Elland Road. I love our fans and we need them right now. We need to be unified. They helped us last year in tough moments and we need them now.”
Marsch reported no new damage worries post-match on Thursday and stated he was hopeful Pascal Struijk can get well in time from the knock which stored him out.
