Ex-USMNT forward Taylor Twellman took aim at Leeds United following Jesse Marsch's departure from the club.

  • Whites lose to Everton on Saturday
  • Now just a point off the bottom

WHAT HAPPENED? Twellman had a sarcastic response after seeing Leeds beaten again in the Premier League, this time by fellow strugglers Everton. Interim boss Michael Skubala once again took charge of the team, following Marsch's sacking, but saw his Leeds side beaten thanks to a single goal by Seamus Coleman. Leeds have now gone 10 games without a win in the Premier League, and Twellman clearly believes compatriot Marsch was scapegoated.

WHAT THEY SAID: Leeds didn't manage a single shot on target in the match, leading Twellman to take to social media to voice his frustration with a quote tweet. "It’s Marsch’s fault," he wrote sarcastically in response to a post that asked: "Does [Patrick] Bamford have money on Leeds going down? Good grief."
