Red Bull Salzburg striker Noah Okafor is once again linked to Leeds United. Coach Jesse Marsch is under a lot of pressure at the traditional English club.
Noah Okafor can look back on a good season for Red Bull Salzburg so far. In the league, the Swiss has scored five times in 11 games (one goal every 105 minutes) and three times in the premier class – against Milan, Chelsea and Dinamo Zagreb.
Hits, which of course call clubs abroad onto the scene. As Calciomercato reports, Leeds United are trying to land the 22-year-old. Ex-Red Bull Salzburg coach Jesse Marsch is currently working there, under whom Okafor collected 17 points in 44 games.
Marsch was allowed to put together the squad at Leeds according to his ideas, brought three players from the Red Bull empire with Rasmus Kristensen, Tyler Adams and Brenden Aaronson. In the table it is currently only enough for 18th place, four league games were lost recently, the last win dates from August.
“I’ve never lost so much in my career, it makes me sick. I’m really a bit pissed off and tired because we usually play better than our opponents but always lose. I’m not a fool and I know that There will be no support from the club if we continue to lose,” said Marsch about the current situation during the week.
It remains to be seen whether he will still get the chance to follow up with a possible Okafor transfer in the winter transfer window.
