    He received a red card in the 64th minute of the Premier League clash in West London on September 3.

    Marsch was furious after Leeds were not awarded a penalty after Crysencio Summerville had gone down under a challenge from Brentford’s Aaron Hickey.

    He was given his marching orders after wildly remonstrating with fourth official Keith Stroud.

    Now he has been hit with a one-match touchline ban and a fine by The Football Association.

    An FA statement confirmed: “Leeds United FC’s Jesse Marsch has been fined £10,000 and suspended from the touchline for their next fixture following a breach of FA Rule E3 that happened at their match against Brentford FC in the Premier League on Saturday 3 September 2022.

    “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.”

    Leeds were due to face arch-rivals Manchester United this Sunday.

    That would have meant their boss would have had to watch the action from the Old Trafford stands.

    However, the game has been postponed due to the extra policing required in London ahead of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on Monday.

    That means that Marsch will now have to wait until after the international break to serve his ban.

    Leeds are next in action when they take on Aston Villa at Elland Road on October 2.
