There is no doubt that some Leeds fans are on edge that Garry Monk and Leeds United haven’t began discussing his contract but it seems both sides want it done. Monk has today told BBC Leeds he wants a “big project to succeed” and isn’t looking to move on.
Monk was cut short during his spell at Swansea and to be honest the club hasn’t recovered yet, and could be playing Championship football again next season given their current situation. Monk has always said he is planning long-term at Leeds but signed a rolling one-year-deal at the club, probably a wise move from both Massimo Cellino and Garry Monk at the time. He has certainly put the building blocks and foundations in place for a longer stay and that’s what all Leeds fans are thinking too.
Whatever happens in the last month of the season Leeds and Garry Monk have overachieved. Given the amount of money we have spent and the fact Monk signed an entire new team during the summer we have really punched above our weight. With another summer under our belts and Monk recruiting and implementing his own ways we could really set about this division next season…that is if we are still in this division. Talk is premature but at the same time it’s a possibility and that speaks volumes for the work Monk and his team have done in such a short space of time. Under the stewardship of Monk we can look forward to many more highs at Leeds United.
