Next Leeds Manager Odds: Early contenders to replace sacked Jesse Marsch
Leeds United have sacked Jesse Marsch after just under a year in charge.
Marsch replaced Marcelo Bielsa in February 2022 and kept Leeds in the Premier League last season.
However, a return of four wins from 20 games leaves the club dangling above the relegation zone in 17th, with the hierarchy opting to wield the axe following a seven-game winless streak that dates back to early November, which includes Sunday's 1-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest
Below you can browse through the early contenders in the next Leeds manager odds, which we discuss in more detail...

Could the iconic former Leeds manager return to Elland Road to replace the man who replaced him?
Marcelo Bielsa's dazzling brand of high-tempo football catapulted Leeds into the Premier League where they were a breath of fresh air en route to an impressive 9th-place finish.
A run of poor form then resulted in the sack a year ago.
Bielsa has remained out of work since then, although he was hotly linked with the Everton job last month.
How about another familiar face in Carlos Corberan?
The Spaniard managed Leeds' U23s and coached the first team under Bielsa.
In the summer of 2020, he branched out alone and took charge of Huddersfield, whom he impressively propelled to the Championship play-off final last season.
An 11-game stint at Olympiakos followed, while he's since taken the job at West Brom who have improved significantly under his tutorship.
Whether he would take a fourth job in eight months is open to debate.

Currently, the bookies' favourite for the Southampton job if Nathan Jones departs, Marcelo Gallardo now features in the betting to replace Marsch at Elland Road.
Gallardo's CV is jam-packed with a glut of honours from his legendary spell at River Plate.
The Argentine twice won the Copa Libertadores and was linked with some of the top clubs in Europe during his eight-year tenure.
Available for hire since October, there's no doubt he would be a fascinating appointment in the Premier League.
The talented young manager, 37, has already had four spells under his belt, including Schalke 04, Spartak Moscow, and most recently RB Leipzig.
Achievements include a superb 2nd-place Bundesliga finish at Schalke and DFB-Pokal triumph with RB Leipzig.
Leeds may have to act fast with this one, however, as Tedesco is being hotly linked with the Belgium national team.
Speaking of highly-rated young starlets we move on to Ruben Amorim.
The 38-year-old already boasts five trophies on his resume, including a stunning league and cup double at Sporting CP.
The club's league triumph in 2021 was their first since 2002, ending the Porto-Benfica duopoly.
This success cannonballed Amorim into the managerial spotlight and he has since featured in numerous next-manager markets, including PSG.
The Portuguese coach now finds himself in the betting to become a Premier League manager with Leeds.
It's fair to say Rafa Benitez's stint at Everton didn't quite go to plan, but he was under immense pressure before he even took that job given his Liverpool association.
The Spaniard has yet to return to the dugout since departing Goodison a year ago, however, the Leeds job would surely attract his attention.
His CV is glistening with honours, from Champions Leagues and Europa Leagues to La Ligas and Italian domestic cups.
Another experienced Spanish manager worth keeping an eye on is Marcelino.
The 57-year-old has managed the likes of Sevilla, Athletic Bilbao, and Valencia; winning the Copa del Rey with the latter.
Marcelino has also twice been awarded the coveted Miguel Muñoz Trophy and is currently looking for a new job.
He's long been linked with a move to the Premier League yet nothing has ever come to fruition.
