Jesse Marsch’s time with Leeds United ended in frustration, but the American head coach is reportedly on the radar of one of Ligue 1’s prominent clubs.
Marsch is linked with French side AS Monaco for a potential move to Ligue 1, LeedsLive reported Tuesday. The 49-year-old could be hired as a potential replacement for Paul Clement with Monaco sitting sixth and in danger of missing out on European qualification for next season.
Monaco has one final league match remaining against Toulouse, but will need to earn three points to have any chance of cracking the top-four ahead of Lille and Rennes.
The American head coach replaced Marcelo Bielsa in February 2022, eventually leading Leeds United to league survival despite an inconsistent overall season. However, the Lilywhites struggles during the 2022-23 campaign ultimately led to Marsch’s dismissal in February.
Marsch posted a 11-10-16 record across all competitions with Leeds United. He was considered for the managerial openings at Southampton and Leicester City, but was not hired by either club.
A former MLS and U.S. men’s national team player, Marsch has also been linked with the head coaching job. Interim head coach Anthony Hudson recently left his role, forcing U.S. Soccer to elevate assistant coach B.J. Callaghan to an interim role.
Marsch previously was the manager of both Red Bull Salzburg and RB Leipzig in Europe before joining Leeds United last season.
