The life of a football manager doesn't always prove to be a particularly charmed one in English football with the axe falling quickly when things aren’t going well. So it's no surprise to Leeds United fans that, according to the Mirror, their club is looking at sacking new manager Garry Monk.

We take a brief look at the managerial casualties Leeds have seen under Massimo Cellino.

Brian McDermott

55 games, 21 wins, nine draws and 25 defeats. Win ratio:38.2%. 86 days in charge

It was the start of things to come for Leeds as McDermott was supposedly sacked by Cellino on January 31st 2014 before being reinstated as manager. It turned out though that 21 wins wasn't enough to save McDermott as Cellino wielded the axe for the first time. McDermott lasted 86 days.

Dave Hockaday

Six games, two wins and four defeats Win ratio: 33.3%. 70 days in charge.

After the McDermott farce, Hockaday represented Cellino’s first chance to install his own Leeds United manager. However, Hockaday quickly struggled at Leeds. Just two wins from six games was more than enough for Cellino, and Hockaday was sacked after just 70 days in charge.

Neil Redfearn

Four games, three wins, one draw. Win ratio: 75%. 26 days in charge.

The first of two spells for Redfearn. While this was a very short reign, it was successful one, yielding a 75% win ratio. Redfearn remained unbeaten in his first stint at the club. He then stepped back into the position of Academy manager and head of coaching - that is until his second spell in charge.

Darko Milanic

Six game, three draws and three defeats Win ratio: 0%. 32 days in charge

Redfearn did a superb job of steadying things at Leeds and so the fans were optimistic of their chances after their unbeaten run. Milanic was brought in to much fanfare after winning four titles with Maribor, however, he failed to register a win and was given the boot after just 32 days in charge.

Neil Redfearn

33 games, 11 wins, seven draws, 15 defeats. Win ratio: 33.34%. 241 days in charge

After yet another manager staying for an incredibly short period of time, Redfearn was given the job to the delight of the Leeds fans. Perhaps he should have seen his fate coming, though, with a mere one year contract handed to him. He picked the club up from 18th when he took over and finished 15th, clear of the drop. Even with what must be seen as a success in avoiding relegation, however, Redfearn was shown the door after 241 days.

Uwe Rosler

12 games, two wins, six draws and four defeats. Win ratio: 16.67%. 109 days in charge

The German was brought in on a two year contract and was almost immediately under pressure. Six draws supplemented two victories and it was clear early on that Rosler would not last long. With a mere 16.67% win ratio, Rosler was sacked after 109 days in charge.

Steve Evans

38 games, 14 wins, 13 draws and 11 defeats. Win ratio: 36.84%.  224 days in charge

Evans came in and immediately had an impact at Leeds. When he took charge, the side were one point above the relegation zone, and by the end of the season they were in 13th place and enjoying safety. However, even though he took charge in October, Evans couldn't guide Leeds to the play-offs, finishing 15 points short. Perhaps it was this failure that prompted Cellino to part company with a man that had brought a lot of stability to the club.

Garry Monk

Four games, one win, one draw, two loses. Win ratio: 25%. 78 days so far.

The former Swansea manager has struggled during his short time with Leeds United. Picking up just a single point this Championship season in a scrappy draw with Fulham, Monk is already under a huge amount of pressure after just four games in charge. If Leeds lose their next game, then it may already be too late for Monk. If he were to go, it would be the seventh managerial casualty at Leeds since Cellino took over in 2014.
