Garry Monk edges closer to Leeds job following Steve Evans sackingby Jack Kitson / 01 June 2016, 09:22Tweet
Garry Monk remains the outright favourite to become the next head coach of Leeds United following the sacking of Steve Evans. On Tuesday the former Swansea gaffer emerged as the evens frontrunner for the post, before being cut to just 1/6 in the aftermath of Evans' departure in the evening.
Leeds have already been repelled by the in-work duo of Karl Robinson (MK Dons) and Darrell Clarke (Bristol Rovers), but they'll be hoping that they strike lucky at the third attempt as hot-headed owner Massimo Cellino attempts to appoint a SEVENTH manager since taking over.
Monk has been out of the managerial arena since losing his job at Swansea back in December. The 37-year-old's time in charge of the Welsh club may have come to a disappointing end, but his stock remains considerably high.
The question for Monk will be whether he wants to risk it all under Cellino, a controversial, trigger-happy owner who has already blitzed through six gaffers at Elland road.
According to the Yorkshire Post Monk's agent has stated he is keen:
"Leeds is a big club and when you are out of work you wouldn't say no to a club like Leeds."....so watch this space!
