Leeds United fans poke fun at Monk after Klich signs

Some Leeds United fans aimed a dig at former manager Garry Monk after FC Twente midfielder Mateusz Klich sealed a move to Elland Road.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Middlesbrough, who now have Monk in charge, made a late enquiry while Leeds were finalising details on a deal for Klich.

It is believed that Monk was interested in signing the Poland international last summer, as Sky Sports report that the 38-year-old recommended the player to the Leeds board when he became manager.

Monk was recently appointed the new boss at Middlesbrough after deciding to walk away from the Whites after just one season in charge.

On Friday, Leeds announced the arrival of Klich, who is Thomas Christiansen’s first signing since replacing Monk as head coach.

The midfielder, who has played in Poland, Germany and the Netherlands, scored six goals in 29 appearances for seventh-placed Twente in the Eredivisie last season.

Some supporters opted to remind Monk that he has missed out, while others expressed their joy in Klich’s arrival.
