Leeds United are reportedly close to bringing Chris Armas to the club after the American coach left Manchester United this summer.
According to The Athletic, Armas is set to take up an assistant role at Leeds, with Marsch making some changes after replacing Marcelo Bielsa as manager late in the season.
Armas joined United last season to work closely with Ralf Rangnick, but it seems he’s now on his way to Leeds to work with Jesse Marsch, who he knows having previously worked together at New York Red Bulls in the MLS.
He was known for being sat in the dugout wearing his Air pods during matches. A separate report from The Athletic claims Armas communicated with analyst Lars Kornetka, who wasn’t paid for his work by United after being denied a work permit.
Armas was only brought in on a short-term basis but United didn’t get results while Rangnick was in charge. Everyone needs to a share of the blame, but there’s no denying that the mood in the dressing room had been low for the entire campaign.
I honestly hope that Leeds go down next season. Back to where they belong after narrowly escaping relegation this time around.
