Leeds United head coach Garry Monk is still at risk of losing his job despite his side’s 2-1 win over Blackburn Rovers, as Massimo Cellino has grown tired of the man he appointed in the summer, according to the Times.

The west Yorkshire giants ended a winless streak with a victory over a struggling Blackburn Rovers side at Elland Road, and it was their first win at home this season.

However, the three points might not save Monk’s head as Leeds owner Cellino is still considering the option of sacking his head coach in the coming days.

It has been suggested that the Italian has grown tired of the 37-year-old former Swansea boss and considered wielding the axe after only his second game in charge last month.

While Cellino was persuaded by the other head honchos at Leeds to give Monk more time, results and performances have not been up to the mark, and Tuesday night's win only dragged them out of the relegation zone.  


The Italian provided considerable backing to the new boss in the summer with eleven new signings, but Leeds’ form this season is yet to show many encouraging signs.

Monk has insisted that it will take time for his ideas and plans to take shape on the pitch, but it remains to be seen whether Cellino provides the Leeds boss with much leeway in the coming days.

Former Leeds captain Sol Bamba recently backed Monk to take the club forward if given time and patience.
