Leeds United started their 2022-23 Premier League campaign on a high note with a 2-1 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday (6 August) at Elland Road.
Despite going a goal down, the Whites came back strongly to pick up all three points. After the game, there was a heated exchange between Jesse Marsch and Wolves Boss Bruno Lage.
While Marsch refused to elaborate on what happened there, Lage admitted that it was something related to what was said in the first half, as relayed by Phil Hay.
Graham Smyth of The Yorkshire Evening Post shared a one-word reaction to the situation on Twitter after the game. He wrote: “Scamp”
Marsch is a brilliant character. He is very honest and clever with what he says in press conferences but on the pitch, he is a feisty character.
He backs his players to the core if there’s something that bothers him, he makes sure that the message gets across.
It seems both managers don’t want to focus on it, as there are plenty of things to talk about what happened at Elland Road today between the two teams.
Leeds started shakily but they soon got into the groove and created some fabulous chances.
The Whites’ summer signing Brendan Aaronson was outstanding. He created chances and was everywhere on the pitch. The likes of Patrick Bamford and Jack Harrison also did well.
The goal came from Rodrigo, although the Wolves could have done better.
In the second half, Wolves really threatened and they were the better side for about 10-20 minutes, where the Whites just soaked the pressure.
Once they got the second goal, Leeds were in complete control of the game once again. It always feels good to start the season with a win, and it gets even better if the performance is equally good as well.
