Journalist blasts Jesse Marsch for treatment of Leeds United star

Leeds United managed to pick up a point against Aston Villa last weekend, despite going down to 10 men after just 48 minutes.

Despite the commendable result, journalist Will Jackson picked up on a bizarre incident which involved manager Jesse Marsch and young striker Joe Gelhardt.

Even though the Whites were lacking in front of goal, and the fact Marsch declared him first pre-game, Gelhardt failed to feature for a single minute against Steven Gerrard’s Villians.

“We saw him before the game, obviously, and he looked like he was doing some sort of fitness test, like a late fitness test,” Jackson told This Is Futbol.

“He was stripped off, he had his little tracker vest thing on.

“So he looked like he was part of the squad and it was maybe a case of, get through this, see how you’re feeling and we’ll sit you on the bench.

“But Jesse’s just said there in his press conference that he was fit, and they just wanted to get him out on the pitch and get his boots on and just running up and down a little bit before telling him to get in the shower and sit in the stands – which I thought was pretty strange, to be honest.”
