‘I’m trying to figure out which guys can be counted on’: Jesse Marsch hires a permanent psychologist for ‘wavering’ players… as Leeds boss tries to turn his side’s form around as they lie in the relegation zone after four straight defeats

  • Leeds lie in 18th place in the Premier League after losing four successive games
  • Jesse Marsch has hired a full-time psychologist to work with his staff and players 
  • The American admitted that he is at risk of being sacked if results don’t improve 

Jesse Marsch has hired a permanent psychologist at Leeds after publicly questioning whether some of his players can mentally handle a relegation fight.

The American brought in the new member of staff following a fourth straight defeat against Fulham last weekend, which left his side in the bottom three.

Until now, Leeds had only used psychologists from Leeds Beckett University on an ad hoc basis but Marsch wanted someone to work with his staff and players full time.

‘I said last year it was a psychological project and I feel we are back into that phase where I have to psychologically analyse exactly where each individual is at,’ said the under-pressure Leeds boss.

‘I’m trying to figure out which guys can be counted on at the highest level, which guys are ready to fight for everything. Certain players are built more internally to handle these moments and other players start to waver a little.

‘People talk about the physical and tactical side, but I think the psychological often gets neglected. Often that is the most important thing, to unlock insecurities and reinforce confidence in people in ways to help them perform.’

The psychologist will not just be on hand to help the players, but also Marsch himself. He said: ‘The goal is that she is a partner with me.

‘If I can find the right person so we are on top of the psychology of what we are doing, how we are maximising the potential of myself and the behaviour of the players, that would be a massive goal.

‘I’d like to think I can handle the moments, but you get tested at times like this. My wife will probably tell you that she’s my psychologist and unfortunately right now that is probably the case!’

Marsch needs all the help he can get after admitting his job will be in jeopardy if he does not improve results before the World Cup.

Criticism has been rife, although he believes jibes about his nationality — particularly comparisons to fictional American manager Ted Lasso — have been out of order.

‘I’ve experienced various different things in my time here that I think were probably unfair,’ he added.

‘All you are looking for is to be treated fairly, but criticism comes with failure. I’m very much aware of that and I’m OK with it.’
