The American manager has come under fire for his side’s poor run of form.

Jesse Marsch has admitted a group of Leeds United fans want him to leave the club amid the Peacocks’ struggle for form.

Leeds dropped into the Premier League‘s bottom three after a 3-2 defeat against Fulham last weekend.

Marsch saved the Peacocks from relegation at the final stages of the last season. But his side have shown little improvement since the start of the new campaign.

The former RB Leipzig boss admits his uncertain situation at the club but counts on his players to turn things around at Elland Road.

“I’m not dumb. But I understand exactly, that if we don’t win games, I put them in a very difficult situation to continue to support me,” Marsch told Sky Sports.

“I’ve never lost this much in my career and I am sick of it so I am trying to figure out what guys I can count on and which guys are ready to fight for everything.

“I think Elland Road was not overly negative, given the negativity they could be feeling it’s a fanbase that loves the club so much. Of course, some people want me out, some people just want us to turn a corner because they see we are close.”

Marsch’s side will meet Liverpool at Anfield this Saturday before hosting Bournemouth next weekend.
