Jesse Marsch charged by the Football Association after Brentford outburst

Jesse Marsch charged with improper conduct by English FA

Leeds United manager Jesse Marsch has been charged by the Football Association for improper conduct, according to Sky Sports.

The former RB Leipzig manager allegedly breached FA rule E3 during their 5-2 defeat to Brentford on Saturday. The American was infuriated after Leeds were denied a penalty in the 64th minute. 

He was sent off after urging referee Robert Jones to use the monitor to review a challenge by Aaron Hickey on winger Crysencio Summerville. 

Marsch’s language and conduct was deemed improper, and he has been given until Friday to respond to the charges.

The 48-year-old was also booked during Leeds’ 1-0 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion the previous week after angrily slamming the ball down – a yellow card he later admitted he deserved.

Marsch saw his side go 2-0 down after 43 minutes following a brace from Ivan Toney, but a brilliant Luis Sinisterra finish saw Leeds pull one back before half-time.

Toney completed his hat-trick minutes before the incident occurred. Despite summer signing Marc Roca netting his debut goal for Leeds, Bryan Mbeumo and Yoane Wissa completed the rout as the Bees ran out 5-2 winners at the Brentford Community Stadium.

Marsch is the latest manager to have allegedly breached the FA rules after Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte picked up red cards following their heated conversation following their thrilling 2-2 derby draw at Stamford Bridge.

Both managers were fined for improper conduct, but Tuchel was also forced to watch Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Leicester City from the stands as he served an additional one-match touchline ban.

Leeds have enjoyed a mixed start to the season. They sit in ninth place in the Premier League table after recording two wins, two losses and two draws in six games.
