Leeds blow as Jesse Marsch’s touchline ban confirmed

The tactician is set to watch on from the stands against Aston Villa early next month


The English Football Association have, on Thursday, slapped Leeds United head coach Jesse Marsch with a touchline ban.

The punishment comes owing to Marsch’s conduct during the Whites’ Premier League meeting with Brentford on September 3rd.

En route to an eventual 5-2 drubbing in London, Leeds’ boss, just beyond the hour mark, completely lost his cool, taking aim at the team of officials in charge of proceedings.

Marsch, in turn, was charged with ‘improper language and/or behaviour’ by the FA on September 6th.

And now, nine days later, the American tactician’s exact sanction has been made official.

In a post across the club’s social media platforms, Leeds unveiled a statement on the part of the FA, outlining that:

Leeds United FC’s Jesse Marsch has been fined £10,000 and suspended from the touchline for their next fixture following a breach of FA Rule E3 that happened at their match against Brentford FC in the Premier League on Saturday 3 September 2022.

The manager admitted that his language and behaviour during the 64th minute of that game was improper.

An independent Regulatory Commission subsequently imposed his sanctions.

Marsch, as a result, will be forced to watch on from the stands, when Leeds welcome Aston Villa to Elland Road for a Premier League clash on the 2nd of October.
