Leeds boss facing sack if they bow to humiliating fifth defeat of season against Blackburn

Published

Leeds United manager Garry Monk is set to be sacked on Tuesday evening should his side lose their fifth game of the season when Blackburn travel to Elland Road, according to the Sun via the Daily Star.

Monk, who took over from Steve Evans in the summer, has only managed eight games so far, but a defeat in their ninth could be the final straw for owner Massimo Cellino.

Leeds have won three games so far this season, but only one of those has come in the league as they sit third-bottom with just a single win and one more draw.

They face bottom club Blackburn on Tuesday evening, with Monk knowing that unless the club come away with a result, it could be the last time he sits in the dugout at Elland Road.

Cellino hasn’t been afraid to fire managers soon after appointing them, with Brian McDermott, Darko Milanic and Dave Hockaday all being sacked earlier in their Leeds career than the 103 days that Monk has had.

On the other hand, Monk could have had a lot shorter, with reports suggesting that Cellino was ready to sack him after just four games, before the club won their only Championship game this season, beating Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 to buy Monk some time.

If he does go on Tuesday, then the ex-Swansea City boss will become the quickest manager to be sacked after the start of a Championship season since predecessor Hockaday back in 2014.
