Jesse Marsch has worked his way up the managerial ranks in his 12-year career, which began as an assistant manager for the USA men’s national team. The 49-year-old then joined Canadian outfit Montreal Impact as head coach in 2011, before leaving after one season. In 2015, Marsch set off on his Red Bull adventure with the first stop being New York Red Bulls.
The American had a successful first season in charge, even winning the MLS coach of the year award. He left in 2018 as the coach with the most victories in the club’s history, joining RB Leipzig as an assistant manager. After one season in Germany, he was appointed as manager of RB Salzburg in Austria where his side dominated domestically.
After Impressing with his Salzburg side, a return to the Bundesliga was just around the corner for Jesse and he replaced Julian Nagelsmann as Leipzig’s new head coach in 2021. However, after numerous uninspired average performances, Marsch and the club mutually agreed to part ways.
In February 2022, Jesse Marsch replaced Marcelo Bielsa as head coach of Leeds United. He just about lead his side to Premier League survival that season, with Leeds becoming the first side since 2011 to avoid relegation whilst being in the bottom three going into the final matchday. As of today, Jesse Marsch remains in charge at Elland Road, yet two wins in his last 17 games means he is under heavy scrutiny.
