- The Punishment of the City
- Liverpool’s position on Jurgen Klopp
1. Leeds United fires its manager
Leeds United have fired Jesse March as a result of the team’s inconsistent performance. According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Jesse Marsch was fired due to poor performance.
Leeds is currently looking for a new head coach, but Marcelo Bielsa’s return is thought to be “unlikely.” The EPL clubs have named West Brom coach Carlos Corberan as one of the candidates to replace Jesse Marsch as new manager. Leeds, according to reports, is looking for a coach for a long-term project, and talks are currently taking place.
2. Manchester City’s reprimand
Manchester City was charged today with violating more than 100 Premier League financial rules, sparking speculation of a points deduction after a five-year investigation.

City has won the EPL six times in the last 14 years, including four of the last five. They still have a chance to win five out of six games before the end of the month, but the announcement of these charges will send shockwaves throughout the game, putting City’s finances back in the spotlight. City could face disciplinary actions such as point deduction, suspension from league matches, or even club expulsion.
3. Liverpool’s position on Jurgen Klopp
Despite the club’s poor performance, Jurgen Klopp remains confident in his ability to turn things around.
Jurgen Klopp still has the full support of the Liverpool board, according to Atlethics. His work at the club over the last seven years, including winning the Premier League title, is said to have earned him enough credit to lead a rebuilding effort during the summer transfer window.
