Jesse Marsch came at a difficult time but he brought our faith back, says Raphinha

Leeds United winger Raphinha has praised manager Jesse Marsch and revealed he was responsible for their improved performance since Marcelo Bielsa was sacked and praised him for restoring confidence to the England side. The former Leipzig manager was appointed Leeds manager in February.

Leeds ended the 2020-21 season in electric fashion by managing to secure a 9th place ahead of media and fan expectations. The Peacocks were expected to build from that this season, although it didn’t go to plan as the English giants were embroiled in a heated relegation fight.

The Premier League side’s terrible performances and results forced the board to pull the trigger on Marcelo Bielsa’s reign in February as they looked to reverse their fortunes until the end of the season. Former Leipzig manager Jesse Marsch was appointed Leeds manager in February and has overseen an improvement in results.

The Whites’ five-game unbeaten streak has given them a break from the dip at the moment and they will look to maintain that form until the end of the season to confirm their stay in the Premier League. In light of this, Leeds star Raphinha credited the USA manager for his improvement and claimed the team would definitely stay in place at the end of the current campaign.

“I’m not sure it’s something I can really explain properly. He arrived at the club at a difficult time, we are still in a difficult position but he has given us confidence. Even before he arrived he knew the players, what we had to offer as individuals and what we could achieve as a team. We’ve had some bad luck this season, but I think we’ll stay put,” the Brazilian told Sky Sports.
