Leeds United head coach Garry Monk has stressed the importance of the process of improving performances rather than becoming fixated on the results.

The west Yorkshire giants have made a poor start to their Championship campaign, collecting just four points from their opening six games, and are currently in the relegation zone.

Bringing in eleven new players in the summer, Monk has always maintained that his ideas and plans will take time to take shape on the pitch as he looks to build a team from scratch at Elland Road.

However, the results in the first weeks of the season have put pressure on the new Leeds boss, and he admits that putting together points and wins are important.

But he also insisted that it is also important to keep an eye on the process as with improved performances, the results will eventually come.  


Monk told LUTV: “Of course I really understand how important results are, we all do.

“But if you just focus on the result, then you lose track of how you are going to get that result.

"Focus on the process, then on the result – I truly believe that.

“If we can transfer the hard work we do here into our performances, and understand how we can perform, the results will take care of themselves.”

Despite Monk’s talk, another failure to win against a struggling Blackburn side at home tonight could raise serious question about the Leeds team and their head coach.
