Jesse Marsch and Bruno Lage involved in heated altercation after full-time whistle

Ah, it’s good to have the Premier League back

Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Bruno Lage and Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch were involved in a heated argument after the two sides’ Premier League match on Saturday.

The away side took the lead in the sixth minute through Daniel Podence, but Leeds reacted well and levelled proceedings in the 24th minute through Rodrigo Moreno.

Marsch’s side went 2-1 ahead in the second half after Wolves defender Rayan Aït-Nouri put the ball in his own net – with the Yorkshire outfit holding out for the victory.

After the match, the two clubs’ managers clashed on the touchline, with both visibly upset and annoyed by something that had occurred after the full-time whistle.

According to journalist Graham Smyth, Marsch went to shake Lage’s hand, but the Wolves boss stormed towards the tunnel in anger, which led to Marsch following him as a few words were exchanged.

The two clubs will clash again in the Premier League on March 18 next year, so fans will have to wait a while to see if the two managers clash once again.

Marsch invited to Ted Lasso filming

The Leeds boss recently revealed that he was invited to meet Ted Lasso, but rejected the chance because the Whites were in the middle of a Premier League relegation fight.

Shortly after arriving in England, he was contacted by the Ted Lasso producers. The show features an enthusiastic American coach who is attempting to motivate a struggling English side, despite initially knowing nothing about football.

“They were filming in London and they gave me an invitation but it was in the middle of the relegation fight,” Marsch told ESPN.

“But I’m a huge Jason Sudekis fan and so any time I could be on set or see what’s going on, that would be awesome.

“I haven’t [had time to watch it in the offseason]. I’ve heard it’s a really great show, I’ve heard it’s inspiring and a lot of people love it. I’ll have to find some time to watch it.

“It’s just about managing the way people speak about Americans in England and our sport. I think no one comes here if they’re afraid of what people might say.”
