Jesse Marsch takes aim at ‘snails pace’ Aston Villa after draw with Leeds

Jess Marsch has hit out at Aston Villa after his side was held to a goalless draw.

The American was forced to watch the match from the stands after his pitchside antics during the hammering Leeds faced against Brentford before the international break and has now hit out at Steven Gerrard's men for their attempt to slow down the pace of the game.

The game was a feirce one as players fought hard for the ball, although the majority of the goal mouth action came from the visitors at Elland Road. Marsch was forced to watch as summer signing Luis Sinisterra was shown a second yellow for blocking a free kick being taken before the Villains launched a much more attacking display.

After the match, the former Red Bull Salzburg manager fumed over the apparent time wasting, despite his side holding on for the draw. He claimed that the visiting players "at every moment" threw the ball away and would "take a minute on goal kicks".

He told Sky Sports: "Villa slows the game down and now it's two or three opponents that we've had here that just, at every moment, throw the ball away, take a minute on every goal kick. So, we need some help to manage this, right?

"We can't do it alone. And, again, the sad thing is that this is the best environment in the league for me and our fans don't come here to watch a snail's paced match."

The draw leaves his side 12th in the Premier League, with the manager seeing his side play for the first time in almost a month after games against Nottingham Forest and Manchester United were postponed before the international break.
