Leeds United supporters on Twitter think that Gjanni Alioski has just made a costly mistake by claiming he doesn't know who Sheffield Wednesday boss Garry Monk is.

Monk managed Leeds prior to Alioski joining the club, as the Englishman will come up against his former side on Saturday in what is expected to be a mouthwatering contest.

Whilst Alioski's comments can seem funny, there are sections of Leeds fans who think that their player has just handed Sheffield Wednesday extra motivation for the weekend.

The game in itself doesn't need any introduction and added with the fact that Monk is going to come up against his former club, it does add more spice to the occasion.

But Alioski has opted to add his own spice to the match, as he will be hoping that Leeds do walk away with the points because if they end up losing then Wednesday fans will use his recent comments against him.

Leeds go into the game sitting one point and one place above their near neighbours, as either team can move top of the table for a brief period on Saturday lunchtime if they pick up maximum points.
