Jesse Marsch has revealed that he has been receiving flak from his wife following his strange celebration when Leeds took the lead against Liverpool at the weekend. Crysencio Summerville scored an 89th minute winner at Anfield to set his side’s supporters into a frenzy.

The victory for Leeds moved them out of the relegation zone and relieves some of the pressure off of Marsch’s shoulders, with some supporters calling for him to be sacked after the disappointing start to the season.

The former RB Leipzig boss has consistently insisted that he could get the best out of his troops and that he had the backing of the club owners. Marsch cut a relieved figure as Summerville found the back of the net in the dying embers of the match on Saturday evening – though his celebration raised eyebrows.

The American waved his hand around as if he had touched a hot object before punching the air. Asked on Instagram about the celebration, Marsch replied: “Honestly I have no idea. My wife has been asking me since the match what is wrong with me?!”

The celebration went viral on Twitter, with it dividing opinions. Some felt that Marsch’s character on the sidelines is making him a favourite for neutrals, with one saying: “He’s so unashamedly enthusiastic, this celebration is his pure essence distilled to a couple of seconds.”

Whereas others claimed that the 48-year-old had their skin crawling with his celebration, favouring how he jumped into the arms of his players once the full time whistle had sounded. One joked: “Hopefully the Premier League will severely punish Jesse Marsch for that goal celebration. At least a six game ban for that,” whereas another claimed the that his reaction will ‘keep them up at night’.

Leeds will be hoping that their victory over Liverpool will give them the lift they required to kickstart their campaign and move away from the relegation zone. They take on Bournemouth this weekend in what will be seen as a ‘must win’ if the Elland Road outfit are keen to assert themselves as a midtable team that are progressing.

Speaking after his side’s victory in Merseyside, Marsch claimed that he never lost the faith of his players, saying: “Everybody’s made a big deal about firing me but the board and I have been unified and we’ve stuck together. My focus was on the team. The ability for them, at an incredibly tough moment in the season at a very difficult place against one of the best teams in the world, to come away with three points is incredibly important.”
