Swansea City fans believe that Garry Monk will be a success at Leeds United.

Swansea manager Garry Monk

Swansea City fans have backed Garry Monk to go a good job at Leeds United.

Monk was appointed as Leeds boss earlier today, and he has penned a one-year contract at Elland Road.

The 37-year-old’s arrival at the Yorkshire club has created great excitement amongst Leeds supporters, and Swansea fans also believe he will be a good appointment, even if his task of guiding the Whites back to the Premier League will be a difficult one.

Monk takes over from Steve Evans at Leeds, and his remit is to guide the Whites into promotion contention.

Leeds have already outlined their ambitions for next season, by offering season ticket holders a part-refund if they do not make it into the top six.

Evans had managed to guide Leeds into 13th place in the Championship last season, but it was not enough to convince Massimo Cellino that he was the right man for the job.

Monk is a relatively inexperienced manager still, but he still did an impressive job at Swansea.

Monk was in charge of the Welsh side for just under two years, and he led them to their record Premier League points total during the 2014/15 campaign.
