Jesse March has been sacked as Leeds United manager.
Leeds said on the official website on the 7th (Korean time), “Manager Jesse March has been sacked. René Marique, Cameron Toshak and Pierre Barrieudo will also leave the club. We appreciate his efforts and wish him good luck in the future. The appointment process is also underway.” 안전놀이터
March took over as Leeds manager in February 2022. He took over the sacked manager Marcelo Bielsa due to poor performance, and was given the crucial task of keeping the team alive. The result was successful. Coach March had a dramatic 2-1 victory over Brentford in the league final, leaving Leeds in the English Premier League (EPL).
At the beginning of the season, the good atmosphere continued, including beating Chelsea 3-0. However, after the first loss to Brighton and Hove Albion, it started to go downhill. After the World Cup break, they did not win a single league title. They recorded 3 draws and 3 losses in 6 matches and fell to 17th in the league. In the end, Machi took responsibility and resigned.
As an American coach, March attracted attention by leading Salzburg from 2019 to 2021. At that time, he made a sensational move in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) with Elling Hollan, Hwang Eui-chan and Minamino Takumi at the fore. However, since leaving Salzburg, he has failed repeatedly. He took over as Leipzig manager, but after struggling, he left for Leeds after half a season.
My stay in Leeds was not long either. When he suffered a slump in the first half, he also aimed to recruit Hwang Hee-chan to reinforce his power. However, as his poor performance continued, he was unable to complete the term of his contract and was forced to lay down the baton early.
