MLS products Jesse Marsch, Jack Harrison steer Leeds United to Premier League safety

Marsch’s side took four of six points from their final two games, which was just enough after three straight losses to Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City (eventual title-winners). They also went 3W-0L-2D during a six-week span this spring, climbing the Premier League table.

Before heading to Leeds, Marsch was in charge of German Bundesliga side RB Leipzig and Austrian Bundesliga side Red Bull Salzburg. While at RBNY, he helped steer two MLS Supporters’ Shield-winning sides before departing in the summer of 2018.

Harrison was the No. 1 pick in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft and signed with Manchester City in January 2018 after thriving on the wing at NYCFC under now-Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira. He had eight goals in 35 Premier League matches this season, his fourth with the club.
