Leeds United’s Stuart Dallas has dubbed the speculation surrounding head coach Garry Monk’s future at the club “nonsense" as he insists he can only see the Whites getting better under the 37-year-old. 

Monk, who took charge of Leeds in the summer, has not experienced the best of starts to life at Elland Road.

Although the Whites edged out Blackburn Rovers 2-1 on Tuesday night, the Yorkshire giants are just two points and four places ahead of the relegation zone.

Leeds have lost four of their opening seven Championship fixtures this season, and reportedly, owner Massimo Cellino is already considering sacking Monk.

But Dallas, who admitted that Leeds have thus far not managed to fulfil the expectations of the fans, however, is not pleased with the constant talk surrounding Monk’s future at Elland Road as he sees the club doing better under the 37-year-old.


“Obviously the fans have got a lot of expectation here”, the winger was quoted as saying by the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“There’s maybe people who have brought up speculation about the manager, but it’s nonsense really.

“He’s a good manager, we have bought into what he is doing, everybody is enjoying it and I can only see us getting better.”

Leeds, who have seven points from as many league games, will next face Cardiff City in an away fixture on Saturday.
