Leeds United defender Sol Bamba has suggested to The Yorkshire Post that head coach Garry Monk was angry with the players after the game against Birmingham City at the weekend.

Leeds suffered a 2-1 defeat to Birmingham at home in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

The Whites were expected to pick up all three points from the encounter at Elland Road, but they slumped to a defeat.

The performance of the West Yorkshire outfit was far from impressive, and captain Bamba has highlighted just how frustrated and angry head coach Monk was.

When asked by The Yorkshire Post what the former Swansea City manager told the Leeds players after the defeat, the 31-year-old Ivory Coast international centre-back could not repeat what Monk had said to them.

“I cannot say that because there were a few words that I cannot say,” said Bamba when posed the question by The Yorkshire Post. “But he is right to be angry and personally as a player we cannot accept that (performance) and we need to react on Tuesday.”

The defeat to Birmingham means that Leeds have now lost both of the Championship matches so far.

The Whites kicked off their 2016-17 Championship campaign with a 3-0 defeat to Queens Park Rangers away from home at Loftus Road in London.

The former Premier League outfit will return to action on Tuesday evening when they take on Fulham at Elland Road.
