Jeff Stelling unloads on Leeds & Jesse Marsch live on Sky Sports, Kris Boyd hits back

  • by

Jeff Stelling has insisted that Leeds United may be already thinking that they made a mistake by sacking Marcelo Bielsa.

The Sky Sports host questioned new boss Jesse Marsch after his first two games have led to as many losses for the Whites.

Kris Boyd hit back at that, though, insisting that Bielsa’s sacking was coming long before it happened at Elland Road.

Speaking live on Sky Sports this afternoon (12 March) Stelling kickstarted the debate in the studio.

“Jesse Marsch, two games, two losses,” he said.

“I don’t want to be knee-jerkist but are they already feeling like they made a big mistake?”

Boyd responded to those claims and insisted that he was never buying into things at Elland Road in recent years.

“No,” he said. “I told you months ago, I was never buying into the whole Leeds thing to start with.

“They’re on a run where this day has been coming, where you have to make a change.”


The more games pass, the more people insist that Bielsa leaving was not needed and the wrong call.

Looking at the defeat against Aston Villa, the Whites were embarrassed and only had one shot on goal – that would never have happened under El Loco.

That being said, not all the blame can be put on Marsch’s shoulders either, with the American thrown into that situation.

Andrea Radrizzani has not made this easy for anyone, but it looks as though he is confidently backing his decisions.

We will only know the answer at the end of the season whether we will come to regret this, but fingers crossed we are still in the Premier League for that answer.
