Leeds United head coach Garry Monk has admitted to The Yorkshire Post that winning each and every game in the Championship will be tough.

Monk has been appointed the new head coach of Leeds, who will be aiming to finish in the top six of the Championship next season.

The Whites have not featured in the Premier League since 2004 and have become also-rans in the Championship in recent years.

The Championship is a very tough and competitive league, and Monk has admitted that it will not be easy for the Whites.

The former Swansea City manager believes that Leeds need to put in consistent performances in order to be successful next season.

“The Championship is a tough, physical league and that is where your preparation and planning come into place and you have to be adaptable,” Monk told The Yorkshire Post.

“You can’t win every week. But what you have to do is put a consistent performance and way of working and exciting way of working together with fresh ideas and motivation and getting everyone on board.”

Monk is refreshing honest and frank about Leeds’s prospects next season, and this should be welcomed.

It is clear that the Englishman knows how hard it is going to be next season, and he is not trying to oversell himself.

The current Leeds squad is not good enough for a top-six finish in the Championship, but a few good signings in the summer transfer window could make a huge difference.
