Jackson was Greenwood’s first coach at Leeds in their Under-23s set-up, but he was promoted to the first team coaching staff to support new boss Jesse Marsch.


The young striker has been a regular part of the Whites senior team under the American, having only made his Premier League debut earlier this season.



Greenwood has revealed that his former Under-23s coach Jackson being part of the first team coaching staff has made his leap to senior football a lot easier as he is approachable as a person.


The 20-year-old added that Marsch has been able to create a positive atmosphere at the club as there is a bit more togetherness amongst the staff and the players.



Asked whether Jackson’s presence on Marsch’s coaching staff has made his transition into first team football easier, Greenwood said on the Official Leeds United Podcast: “Yes, I would say, 100 per cent, because he is such an approachable guy.


“Obviously, working with him before you can always ask him anything and to be fair all the new first team staff are like that.



“It is like [having] more of a togetherness, you can talk to anyone and I think that is the way the gaffer has tried to make it be.


“If you have got something to say, it is such a good environment, you can talk to anyone about it, which I think is really good for us as a club and the lads.


“It is a great atmosphere at the minute.”


In addition to Greenwood, Joe Gelhardt, Crysencio Summerville and Charlie Cresswell are among the other young stars that are clocking up senior minutes under Marsch.
