Marcelo Bielsa QUITS as Leeds boss after shocking run

MARCELO BIELSA has sensationally quit as Leeds boss after a shocking run of results, it’s understood.

The 66-year-old Argentine has spent four years at Elland Road, getting them promoted from the Championship.

But he has struggled to help them kick-on this season following a series of worrying performances.

They lost 4-0 at home to Tottenham on Saturday lunchtime in another miserable display.

It left them having gained just one point from a possible 18 in their last six matches.

The Yorkshire side are looking to bring in former RB Leipzig boss Jesse Marsch as his replacement.

It is understood the finalisation of Bielsa’s exit is currently being thrashed out between lawyers.

And according to Fabrizio Romano, 48-year-old American coach Marsch is the hot favourite to take over.

He was last employed by RB Leipzig earlier this season but parted ways after just a few months.

He departed the Bundesliga side with a record of seven wins, four draws, and six losses.

Marsch has also coached Montreal Impact, New York Red Bulls and RB Salzburg.

Next up for Leeds is a trip to the King Power Stadium to take on Leicester on Saturday.

They then face Aston Villa, Norwich, Wolves, Southampton and Watford in a crucial run of Premier League games as they look to avoid relegation.
