Against the odds Leeds have survived a torrid season in the Premier League following a nerve-shredding win at Brentford
As the Leeds players sprinted across the pitch to celebrate with their fans at the final whistle, Jesse Marsch had a moment to himself. After a nerve‑shredding afternoon during which the American went through every emotion watching his team eventually secure their Premier League status for another season, it must have felt like vindication.
Having been given the unenviable task of replacing Marcelo Bielsa at the end of February after Leeds had conceded 21 goals in just six matches, it all seemed likely to end in tears for the man who lasted less than half a season at RB Leipzig in Germany this season.
