Leeds United fans appear to be taking great pleasure in Middlesbrough boss Garry Monk's struggles

Garry Monk the Middlesbrough manager looks on during the Sky Bet Championship match between Fulham and Middlesbrough at Craven Cottage on September 23, 2017 in London, England.

Garry Monk’s latest message on social media website Twitter has been met with a barrage of criticism from both Middlesbrough and Leeds United fans.

Monk’s popularity at the Riverside Stadium is dwindling, with the Teesiders’ season not going according to plan.

Boro went into the campaign as the favourites for promotion, but they have failed to live up to their billing.

The North East side are currently sat in ninth place in the Championship table, which is behind the Leeds side Monk left to join the Riverside Stadium.

Leeds fans are still irked by Monk’s decision to leave them in favour of Boro, and they were taking great joy in witnessing the 38-year-old boss struggle.

Boro have lost their last two matches, against Derby County and Bristol City, to crank the pressure up on Monk.

Boro have failed to click into gear, despite having a squad which is the envy of most Championship sides.

Monk’s side’s next match comes against Ipswich Town at the weekend, and anything other than a victory will only make the calls for Monk to be sacked grow louder.
