Leeds United have appointed Garry Monk as their new head coach, taking over from Steve Evans. The Scot departed the club earlier in the week after much speculation for the past couple of months.

The former Swansea City manager has arrived on a 12-month contract and is clearly pleased to have joined a massive club with Leeds.

The former Swansea player has undoubtedly pleased the majority of Leeds fans as an appointment.

A young manager who plays an exciting and attacking style of play – he is exactly what Leeds fans were hoping for in an appointment this summer.

Monk impressed during his time as Swansea boss and was even being touted as a future England manager at one point.

However, he suffered a poor run of form last season and he was given the sack by the club, who ended up surviving the drop.

The majority of Leeds fans have of course been sharing their excitement at the appointment – believing it is a great move from the club and that Monk will work wonders with the young players at the club.

Others however remain wary over Massimo Cellino, who they believe is still a concern regarding Monk’s future going forward.
