Leeds have won three of 11 Premier League games under Jesse Marsch

Leeds manager Jesse Marsch says he expects to be in charge of the club next season, even if they are relegated from the Premier League.

His side occupy the final relegation spot going into Sunday’s game at Brentford, level on points with Burnley but with an inferior goal difference.

Marsch replaced Marcelo Bielsa as Leeds boss in February but they have won just three games under him.

“I’m still planning to be here even in relegation,” said the American, 48.

“It’s a long-term project and the club committed to me in that way. The connections we have made mesh well together.

“The support from everyone has been amazing, but I’m not thinking about the long-term project, only about Sunday and preparing for that.”

Marsch hopes striker Patrick Bamford will be fit enough to play a part in Sunday’s game, having been out since mid-March with a foot injury.
