After a few quiet weeks following the appointment of Alan Irvine as the “permanent” manager for the rest of the season, The Mirror reported today that Norwich is interested in appointing Garry Monk as their next head coach, if Leeds fails to get promoted.
This one is quite interesting, especially because Norwich are travelling to Leeds on Saturday, and will be facing a team that`s on a bad run of form that has taken them out of playoffs positions – we actually have a real chance of ending their season.
I personally thought Garry Monk did a good job at Swansea, he started last season at the top of the premier league, but as bad results started to mount he could not overcome the pressure and the vase broke.
Leeds didn`t start this season very well either and Monk was very close to the sack again in September. Let`s not forget his now famous quote: “If you worry about the sack, you`ll never take any job.” He did foresee the pressure this time and was able to overcome it.
The article also states that Uwe Rosler is still on the radar. Stuart Webber said in his first presser that he would put his efforts towards a two men shortlist. Are these the two names he will present to the board?
Personally I think Garry Monk would be my first choice, he is still young and seems to put a lot of work in behind the scenes. He is also proven both at premier league and championship levels. Besides, if Leeds miss out on the playoffs, he will be available a couple of weeks earlier.
