The 40-year-old has earned plaudits for his high-intensity approach. He also has experience of working with LeedsвЂ™ revered former boss Marcelo Bielsa, having played under the Argentine at Athletic Bilbao, and is understood to be admired by the Elland Road clubвЂ™s sporting director Victor Orta. Orta will be responsible for identifying MarschвЂ™s successor, having informed the American on Monday that he had lost his job in face-to-face discussions. Current West Bromwich Albion boss Carlos Corberan is bound to come into discussions, having worked at Leeds, both before and after BielsaвЂ™s appointment in 2018. He left Leeds following their promotion to the Premier League in 2020, taking over at Huddersfield and defying the odds to guide the Terriers to last seasonвЂ™s Championship play-off final, when they were beaten by Nottingham Forest.
Our visit to Elland Road happens to take place this Sunday, resulting in an extremely rare Premier League double-header for Erik ten Hag and his side. But while the away game (kick-off 14:00 GMT) is being shown live on Sky Sports, the clash in M16 won't be broadcast to viewers in the UK. COVERAGE OF UNITED v LEEDS MUTV will still be broadcasting our regular Matchday Live show, with coverage set to begin at 18:55 GMT.
"We've got 24 hours, " said Skubala. "We've got one session this afternoon so some things will have to be the same. "There may be a few little tweaks in how we want to play but fundamentally we need to make sure the players understand the game plan. "The Red Devils are on a daunting run of 13 successive home wins but Skubala says he is excited about the Whites' prospects. "We will set up to try to exploit their weaknesses, " he said. "We've been really good without the ball, aggressive and on the front foot.

But the second half against Forest sealed his fate. No energy, no plan. This board has a habit of making poor managerial appointments вЂ“ Bielsa the only exception. Whoever replaces Marsch it cannot be a Paul Heckingbottom-type. Managing in the Premier League and managing the Whites is a unique challenge. Only a statement appointment will see the club avoid relegation. Following the sacking of Jesse Marsch we asked who you are backing to fix the problems at Elland Road. Here are some of your comments:Derek: As a Leeds fan, if I wasnвЂ™t conscious of the Leeds-Manchester United rivalry, IвЂ™d go for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. I know heвЂ™s not rated by many but I donвЂ™t know why. Reckon there could be a diamond in the rough there.
His dismissal, however, comes just a week after being backed to spend heavily in January and following the recent arrival of long-time friend Chris Armas as his assistant. In a rapid rise, Armas will now be one of three coaches to take temporary charge of the side for Wednesday's Premier League trip to Manchester United. "I have lots of friends who will not be shedding many tears at Marsch's departure, " Smith said on BBC Radio 5 Live. "But Armas has not left the club - and it does seem slightly odd to appoint him, back Marsch in January and then fire him. "Former Chelsea and England striker Chris Sutton agreed, criticising the owners as "ditherers".
That result was the catalyst for a run of form that secured promotion. After a loss against the same opponents this past Sunday, the feeling was different. The players looked let down by their manager. Jesse Marsch's swarming pinball tactical approach never produced consistent performances. Expected goals can sugar-coat actual results only for so long. And, despite keeping the Peacocks up, Marsch's legacy is of having the second-worst win-rate of any Leeds manager in the Premier League. Worse than Terry Venables. Worse than Peter Reid. Ironically for Marsch, a win this Wednesday at Old Trafford might have been possible вЂ“ his tactics worked better when having less possession.
"Marsch has brought in three new players and spent a lot of money, " said Sutton. "Leeds seem to have panicked because five of the bottom six have sacked their managers. "I would be shocked if they didn't know already who was coming in.

Majority owner Andrea Radrizzani is due at the club this week to lead the search, along with chief executive Angus Kinnear and director of football Victor Orta.

Marsch was shown the door on Monday after a dismal run of two wins in 17 Premier League games.
They just werenвЂ™t clinical enough in the final third and are conceding too many goals at the moment. "They are not a million miles away from being a decent team but itвЂ™s going to be a struggle for them and they have to find the right man.
