Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson has revealed that he hopes that Gary Monk remains as manager of the club next season.
Co-owner of the club Andrea Radrizzani recently said that talks with Monk over a new deal will only take place during the summer. Though the former Swansea City boss’ contract with the Yorkshire club expires at the end of the season, Leeds have an option to extend it by a further year as part of a rolling contract.
Jansson said, “He’s been a big, big part in my career here and he has taken care of me since the first day and he’s been good with me. I really hope that he is going to be coach for Leeds next season, of course.”
Monk has done an impressive job during his first season as manager. He has helped the club surpass the expectations of many by launching a promotion push this season. This season has arguably been one of Leeds best since their relegation from the Premier League in 2004.
It is therefore likely that Monk will be offered a new deal to continue the progress which he has brought to the club this season.
