Leeds in ‘big trouble’ after two transfer decisions as Jesse Marsch warned of sack

Posted by

Leeds United have been warned they could be in big trouble after selling star duo Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha this summer.

Jesse Marsch’s side only narrowly avoided relegation last season, and they’ll now have to try and improve on that despite Phillips leaving for Manchester City and Raphinha closing in on a move to Barcelona.

This is far from ideal unless Leeds can pull off some major signings, and pundit Jamie O’Hara already has a word of warning for the Whites ahead of the new season.

“I want to talk about Raphinha,” O’Hara told talkSPORT. “He has agreed a move to Barcelona, it’s a good move for him, a top football club, it is a great move for him. He is a very good player.

“Leeds now have lost Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha, they are in big trouble. I know Leeds fans are going to come and say ‘No, we are alright we have signed him and him’, they are signing nobodies.

“They are in big trouble, they have lost star players, their two best players have gone. I think Jesse Marsch is going to get sacked.”

  1. Totally agree. It’s ok buying players with no prem experience, if they are superstars. The Austrian, Dutch and American leagues are Micky mouse competitions with only a few good teams in each. There is nothing like the prem and really I wished they’d gone for the likes of cornet, lindgard, Collins, Suarez, Charlie Taylor and winks

    1. Raphina was a nobody to most before Leeds signed him, Cornet is on our radar as a LB currently, Lingard going to USA for big money wages after turning down West Ham, Suarez past it and a cheat, Taylor and Winks I would welcome.

  2. Raph was an unknown with no Premier experience so let’s not judge just yet. O hara is still an unknown.

  3. You may or may not be saying this but the signings so far can be/may very well be good signings IF Leeds hadn’t also lost two big stars without backfilling them. All of Leed’s signings so far will be a lot of fun to watch and will hold their own and Leeds supporters will be happy to have them, but they won’t make up for the catastrophic gap left by Kalvin and Raph. Tyler Adams working WITH kalvin would have been a force to be reckoned with, Tyler Adams alone there has me worried. I hope they bring in someone(or two) quality lads to
    make up
    for this gap.

  4. What a stupid headline. The source of your story is Talksh*te . LOL. I am sure you can do better than scraping the barrel with a story like this.
