Jesse Marsch signals his players in the match

After leading Canada to the semifinals of the Copa America, coach Jesse Marsch expressed his confidence in his coaching abilities despite setbacks. He mentioned feeling appreciated by Canada after being let go by Leeds and not chosen by the U.S. Soccer Federation.

“I felt their strong desire for me to be here, and at this stage in my life, I don’t need all the other complications,” Marsch stated during a press conference ahead of Tuesday’s match against Argentina. He chuckled as the conference was being translated into Spanish simultaneously. “I’m not sure how you say that in Spanish,” he added with a grin.

Marsch took over Leeds in February 2022, guiding them to a 17th-place finish and avoiding relegation by three points. He was dismissed a year later, with Leeds just above the drop zone on goal difference, and they were relegated to the Championship.

He interviewed for the USSF job before Gregg Berhalter was rehired, and Canada appointed him as national team coach in May. Despite the U.S. exiting the Copa America early, Canada made a debut.

“I’ve never doubted my coaching abilities,” Marsch emphasized. “In this industry, my main concern has always been finding the right people to work with. I feel at home now, working with players who appreciate what I bring and share my values.”

Canada hadn’t qualified for the World Cup since 1986, making it to the 2022 tournament under John Herdman, who left for Toronto FC in August, citing insufficient support from the Canada Soccer Association.
