Jesse Marsch under fire admits ‘the whole project is at risk’ in Leeds
Marsch is fighting for his future at Elland Road after an eight-game winless streak that saw Leeds plunge into the relegation zone.
A section of fans have called for him to be sacked, but ahead of Saturday’s daunting trip to Liverpool, the 48-year-old American, who insists he still has the backing of the board, stood down. beaten.
Marsch said: “If we go game to game and you look at the fact that we haven’t won in eight games based on our performance in all eight games, it’s almost impossible to believe that two points is everything. what we won.
“But that’s our reality, isn’t it, in those eight games and all the phases of those games? What if Luis (Sinisterra) scores at Brighton on the two-thumb line and he doesn’t go to the wide ?
“And if we scored the penalty against Arsenal? What if – you can go by assumptions, but that doesn’t matter, does it?
“You can always look at the metrics and you can look at different things and you can say, we’re doing well, which I believe.
“But in the end again, right now if we keep losing games then everything in the whole project is in jeopardy. We have to find a way to stop this.
Leeds have taken seven points from their opening three games, including an impressive 3-0 home win against Chelsea in late August.
But they have since failed to turn dominating spells during games into goals and, after watching his team go from third place to the bottom three, Marsch said he was “fed up”.
He added: “I’m a little angry right now. I’m tired of playing games where we’re in the game and in many cases we’re better than the opponent and come away with nothing.
“I’m tired of not capitalizing on the times when we’re the best team and I’m tired of giving away goals too cheaply, tired of not getting the results we should be getting.
“Fourteen years as a player, 13 years as a coach and I have never lost so much in my career. I’ve had it up to here.
“So I’m trying to figure out which guys can be counted on at the top level at the moment, what kind of decisions have to be made in terms of game plans.
“I have to help find the confidence of the group and find the guys who are ready to fight for everything right now in these next few games, to do everything we can to get the points we need.”
