Marsch took the reins at Elland Road in late February, succeeding long-term boss Marcelo Bielsa at the helm, and was tasked with ensuring Leeds’ survival in the top flight.


A 3-0 win against Watford at the weekend in the league means that Leeds now have picked up ten points from a possible 12 in their last four outings, which has also seen them increase the gap to the drop zone to nine points.



Former Leeds defender Dorigo has hailed new Whites boss Marsch for having a positive impact on the team, which has added to the camaraderie and togetherness amongst his new charges, in addition to getting results on the pitch.


Dorigo stressed that Marsch has been saying the right things and more importantly doing what is necessary in his new role, which has helped him to turn fortunes around at Leeds.



“That’s now 10 points out of a possible 12 and, at this stage of the season, that is really impressive stuff whoever you are playing”, Dorigo wrote in his Yorkshire Evening Post column.


“I look at the boys, well, just how they are talking and the feedback from the pitch that is coming out.



“You can see that there is a camaraderie and they are certainly together but this bunch of lads have always been really strong like that.


“But there is no doubt that Jesse Marsch has got something to do with that as well.


“He is saying the right things but, more importantly, doing the right things and I can see things out on the pitch there that are working.”


Leeds are set to return to top flight action on 25th April against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park and in the meantime, Marsch will be determined to make the most of the extended break as he tries to increasingly impart his playing methodology to his new players.
