Leeds United will be without manager Jesse Marsch in the Premier League clash against Aston Villa next weekend as the manager has received a suspension for a touchline match issued by the FA. The next Premier League game with Leeds United against Manchester United, due to take place this weekend, has been postponed due to a lack of police ahead of the funeral in Queens, meaning manager Jesse Marsch’s suspension will be discounted against Aston Villa. Leeds will play Aston Villa at Elland Road on October 2 after the Whites’ home game against Nottingham Forest was postponed.

On September 3, during the second half of a 5-2 loss, Marsch, 48, was dismissed for arguing with the fourth official after his team had been wrongfully refused a penalty. In a statement, the FA stated that “the manager recognised that his language and behaviour during the 64th minute of that game was unacceptable.” Against Brentford, he was given a red card for disputing with the authorities, and they afterwards claimed that the officials had unfair standards. In his postgame interview, Marsch stated, “I’ve got to find out how to have conversations with the league or with officials to help understand how some judgments get made. “Even when a penalty was assessed that I probably didn’t think was a penalty, I conversed with the fourth official, trying to be as courteous as possible. The respect isn’t then shown to you in return. That’s what I’d describe it as. To me, the absence of a VAR visit ultimately reflects a lack of respect.

Meet Over Salary Control Capping

According to The Times, Leeds United FC and other Premier League teams may face some form of salary limit in upcoming seasons. Stakeholders in the Premier League gathered on Wednesday to discuss the “New Deal for Football,” including reforms to cup competitions, lowering parachute payments, income redistribution in the EFL, and financial sustainability. According to reports, a portion of the conversation focused on clubs’ wages-to-turnover ratios, which have gotten out of hand, especially in the Championship. According to their overall revenue, UEFA is planning to impose a 70% salary restriction on teams; it will stop them from paying wages and bonuses that are greater than this sum.

Currently, Spain’s top division enforces a similar method that has made it difficult for FC Barcelona to sign players in recent summers as they fight to lower their pay cost. “Clubs would be capped at spending a specific proportion of their income on player wages, transfers, and agency fees in a calendar year,” according to the  The Times.
