- Leeds boss was given a red card for his protestations at Brentford this month

Jesse Marsch has been banned from the touchline for Leeds’ clash with Aston Villa after admitting an FA charge of improper language and behaviour.
The Whites boss has also been fined £10,000 for his conduct during his side’s 5-2 defeat at Brentford earlier this month.
Marsch was sent off during the second half of the match after Leeds winger Crysencio Summerville was denied a penalty following a challenge by Bees defender Aaron Hickey.

The angry American remonstrated with fourth official Keith Stroud and pointed towards the pitchside monitor after VAR David Coote refused to ask referee Robert Jones to consult his screen.
Speaking after the match, Marsch moaned: ‘I’ve got to figure out how to have discussions with the League to help understand how some decisions get made. That lack of VAR visit to me is a lack of respect.’
An FA statement said: ‘The manager admitted that his language and behaviour during the 64th minute of that game was improper. An independent regulatory commission subsequently imposed his sanctions.’
