Leeds United Fans Are Buzzing at the Thought of Garry Monk as Manager

Leeds United Fans Are Buzzing at the Thought of Garry Monk as Manager

Garry Monk is the early frontrunner to be named the new manager of Leeds United, and the club’s fans seem absolutely over the moon about it.

The Championship club are on the hunt for a new head coach following the sacking of Steve Evans yesterday – the sixth man eccentric owner Massimo Cellino has shown the door in less than three years in charge.

Regardless of how popular Evans was or wasn’t at Elland Road, yet another sacking would normally bring about a sense of indignation amongst supporters but as soon as Monk was linked with the post, everyone calmed down.

According to Sky Sports, Monk is the leading candidate – and interested in taking the job – having been sacked by Swansea last December.

In his only full season as a manager, Monk led the Swans to an impressive eighth-place finish in the Premier League, and his dismissal was seen as harsh at the time.

It seems there’s A LOT of Leeds fans out there right now with their fingers crossed a deal can be done:

What do you think of Monk at Leeds? Is he the antidote to all the sackings?
