'I heard 15 or 20 people': Jesse Marsch reveals what happened when he went out in Leeds before Brighton
Leeds United manager, Jesse Marsch, has revealed what happened when he went out for dinner in Leeds before the game with Brighton.
As we all know, Leeds snatched a late draw through Pascal Struijk, who headed home after Joe Gelhardt had produced a moment of brilliance as the game ticked into injury time at Elland Road. And while it was a big moment, it might not be enough, with Everton and Burnley both playing this week ahead of the final weekend of action.
However, one thing that won’t be lacking is the support from Leeds fans towards Marsch and his team. Indeed, the Leeds manager has revealed how he’s taken notice of the support he’s had when he went out in Leeds before the game.
“I went to dinner two nights ago and walking down the street I heard 15 or 20 people saying ‘come on, we’re behind you, we’re with you, keep going, you’ve got to believe,” Marsch told LUTV.
“We need that and we all do. I hope every time they see our players they push them and tell them how much they love them. We know that and we’re trying to do everything we can.”
As well as potential relegation, Marsch also has worries over the futures of a number of first-team players. Rodrigo is one who could have played his last game, while both Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips could also be on their way.
TBR’s View: Leeds Fans Supporting Jesse Marsch…For Now
Leeds fans have little other option than to back Marsch because as it stands, it’s all they can do. However, that backing and patience might start running thin soon enough.
Relegation hurts and after doing so well in their first season back under Marcelo Bielsa, things have turned a tad sour for Leeds in the last 12 months. Ultimately, Marsch will be the one to take the blame if they do go down.
Hopefully, for Leeds fans and Marsch anyway, they can win against Brentford and pull off the miracle escape.
