Leeds’ United’s 16/17 season was beset with inconsistencies. From being 4th in the Championship table in the 1st week of April, they choked their way down to 7th towards the end, thereby missing on a promotion playoff spot.
However, the fans saw the season in a positive manner, with their 7th place finish their highest in recent years. The core of the squad with manager Garry Monk and star players like Chris Wood, Pontus Jansson and Rob Green reeked of greater things and Leeds United fans finally felt an air of solidity after years of turmoil.
However, all that changed when Garry Monk resigned from the club. If that was not humiliating enough, the subsequent joining of Middlesborough has drawn the ire of the Leeds fans like nothing else.
The Board, fans, players would all love to get one back at Monk, and preparations are on full earnest at Elland Road to find an able replacement.
However, it seems like club chairman Andrea Radrizzani is looking for solutions from within. Radrizzani’s recent Twitter activity indicates that the management maybe thinking of promoting assistant manager, Pep Clotet to the driver’s seat.
