Premier League: Bielsa on the brink at Leeds with Marsch in the wings
Leeds United have slipped into the relegation dogfight in the Premier League after a series of heavy defeats, and Marcelo Bielsa could go.
Leeds United are being drawn into the relegation battle, mounting pressure on manager Marcelo Bielsa.
The Whites enjoyed a top-half finish in their return to the Premier League last season but have struggled this term.
Leeds have managed one point from their past six league games, conceding 20 goals in their past five.
Reports in the UK claim Marcelo Bielsa has quit as Leeds United manager with ex-RB Leipzig boss Jesse Marsch set to replace him.
Bielsa resigned after Leeds were hammered 4-0 by Tottenham on Saturday, having conceded 14 goals in their past three league games.
The Argentinean's exit from Elland Road is being thrashed out between lawyers, with Fabrizio Romano claiming that Marsch – who left Leipzig in December and previously managed Salzburg and New York Red Bulls – is the favourite to take over.
