Leeds boss Marsch confident in club finances if relegated

Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch has confidence in their finances should they be relegated.

Leeds' two-season stay in the English top flight will be cut short if they fail to better Burnley's result on the final day of the season.

Marsch, whose side play at Brentford, while Burnley take on Newcastle at Turf Moor, insists Leeds will still be “very secure" financially if they fail to stay up.

The American, who expects to remain in the job next season, said: “We've not had any communication other than to say they (the board) have done some behind-the-scenes planning to make sure we're in good shape in any direction the season may go in.

“That financially with the player pool, what the future may bring, that we're very secure and able to move forward in a positive direction, which they said to me at the very beginning.

“Before I came here, and I asked the questions about what it would be like if it goes in this direction, or what it would look like if it goes in that direction.

“They were clear that they had a plan, they were able to map out what some of that plan looks like – there is clarity already.

“In that sense, they've kind of left me alone to not have to focus on anything other than the job at hand and do everything I can to keep us up."
