Leeds United: LMA could deal with Jesse Marsch after Wolves

We are delighted to welcome the former Premier League referee keith hacket to the MOT Leeds News team. Each week, Hackett will discuss highlights from Leeds United’s recent games and deliver his verdict on whether his successors made their decisions right or wrong…

Keith Hackett has insisted the League Manager’s Association could get in touch with Jesse Marsch after he caused outrage as Leeds United beat Wolves.

Bruno Lages remained furious after the American was accused of saying something you ‘can’t say’ after Hwang-Hee Chan fell to minimal contact from Marc Roca.

Hackett shared that if the fourth official had heard it, it would have been dealt with on the pitch, but instead it may now be up to the LMA to implicate him.

“No, I doubt it [will be in the referee report]”, he exclusively said WORD Leeds News.

“I think there is a threshold and you can’t continue on assumptions. The way for this manager here is to raise this with the LMA [League Manager’s Association] and then maybe they have a word in Marsch’s ear, a gentle reminder.

“If the fourth official has heard anything discriminatory or untoward he must bring it to the attention of the referee, it will result in action during the match.”


No one wants to accuse Lages of lying, and that matter should be dealt with if there is cause for concern.

Hackett mentioned the fourth official and given that he was immediately next to Marsch and closer than his counterpart and didn’t act, he can’t have said much.

The LMA can always get in touch with both managers and give them both gentle reminders of their sideline actions and working to be good role models.

On the other hand, it’s the first day of the Premier League and the tensions are high because you want to start your season in full force – you don’t want to deprive yourself of this passion.

Given the lack of follow-up, we doubt much will happen without this.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites now want to sign the striker with a rival ready to kick off a major £30m+ transfer battle.
