Leeds United fans rage after Monk is charged by FA

Plenty of Leeds United supporters have been left angered by the Football Association’s decision to charge manager Garry Monk following a touchline brawl with Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner.

Both coaches are facing punishment from the English governing body as Wagner was also charged for his role in the scuffle.

In the closing stages of the Yorkshire derby last Sunday, Michael Hefele scored a late winner to clinch the clash 2-1.

During the celebrations, Wagnar charged down the touchline and while walking through Leeds’ technical area, he was obstructed by Monk and a melee broke out.

statement from the FA read:

“Huddersfield’s David Wagner is subject to two alleged breaches of FA Rule E3 in that in or around the 89th minute, his behaviour in entering the field of play amounted to improper conduct. It is further alleged his behaviour upon his return to the vicinity of the technical area amounted to improper conduct.

“It is alleged that Leeds’ Garry Monk breached FA Rule E3 in that in or around the 89th minute, his behaviour amounted to improper conduct.”

The clubs have also been charged for failing to control their players, and all parties have until 6pm on February 10 to respond.

Fans have had their say on Twitter, with plenty baffled by the FA’s decision to target Monk, who currently sits fifth in the Championship with his club, seven points adrift of the automatic promotion spots.
