Ted Lasso, Football, Jesse Marsh discussed on ESPN FC



Clubs. Let's hear what he had to say. Yeah, I think there's probably a stigma. I'm not sure Ted Lasso helped. I haven't watched the show, but I get it. I get it. Like, people hate hearing the word soccer. They hate hearing, you know. I mean, I've used the word football since I was a football professional football player. I think more and more in the states were adapting to what the game here is in England and our connection with what this league is and what the culture of the sport is in this country. You know, I can understand that they don't think that we have the experiences that can be created here in Europe. Frankly, they're right. Right? I mean, it was the reason I came to Europe. It was the reason I learned German. It was the reason I tried to adapt to new cultures. This is the 5th country I've coached football in. So, and it takes me out of my comfort zone every time. It challenges me to grow and develop and learn new things. I'm very open to that. I'm very cognizant of the fact that I'm not perfect, and I don't want to be. And all I can say is the only way I know how to do things is to go all in to give everything I have to believe in who I am to believe in the people that I work with and to try to maximize what we are every day. And I find if you can do that effectively that you can be incredibly surprised with the human spirit and what you can achieve. So that sounds like Ted Lasso, I think, from what I've heard. Yeah, just believe. Don, you're impressed with what you heard from Jesse marsh. I was very much sorry he wasn't on the defensive he was quite humorous, he was quite funny. I think you can see that is genuine as well. He's obviously an intelligent manager. And everything he would be saying is right, you know? He speaks 5 different languages. He's worked incredibly hard to get this big job at Leeds. He could have come across. I think that I think the question that was a little bit loaded and that we're trying to be a bit smarmy towards him, but I thought he batted it off really well. He could have went on the defenses. He could have looked a little bit awkward, the interview could have been awkward, but I think in the end, I think he had everyone laughing. I think he's very, very smart guy. And I think if you're a leads fan tuning in, you're getting your first impressions of your new manager. I think that would be quite happy. Yeah, so there we go. Jesse marsh in at Leeds and so far, Don is impressed with what he's heard from the new manager, or we'll see how the results play out, and we wish him the best of luck..

Coming up next
