Leeds United fans poke fun at Monk following win over Middlesbrough

Sunday’s Championship game was more than just a league match for Leeds United fans as they faced their former manager Garry Monk.

The 38-year-old took charge of Middlesbrough in the summer after leaving Elland Road.

Monk was in charge of the Whites for just one season, in which the club narrowly missed out on a playoff spot.

Some fans were angry when the ex-Swansea City boss walked away, so witnessing their team win at the weekend was made even sweeter.

Goals from Pablo Hernandez and Ezgjan Alisoki were enough to secure all three points for Leeds.

Britt Assombalonga got on the scoresheet for Boro from the penalty spot, but it proved to be a consolation goal for the visiting side at Elland Road.

The result ended a run of three consecutive league defeats for Leeds and put them up to seventh, level on points with Sunday’s opponents.

After the match, the supporters took aim at Monk, who told reporters that his team deserved more out of the game.
