Leeds United head coach Garry Monk gave his final pre-game presser of the season amidst a sense of growing uncertainty at the club.

The first situation that is uncertain is the ownership structure although that is becoming clearer with increasing news that Massimo Cellino is preparing to sell his 50% stake in the Whites to fellow Italian Andrea Radrizzani. This deal, feted to be ratified and officially announced in the very near future, will see Radrizzani take full ownership of Leeds United.

The other bone of contention and mark of uncertainty is one regarding the position of Garry Monk at the club, with Monk nearing the end of his rolling one-year deal. Such has been the mystery that the Whites have not offered an improved deal for the former Swansea man, fans have had the hashtag #SignGarryMonk trending on Twitter.

Whilst there was nothing forthcoming from the presser about the changing ownership situation, there was still plenty coming from Monk himself and both his situation and the weekend game against an already relegated Wigan Athletic.

As well as speaking about his position at Elland Road, Garry Monk also looked ahead to the season’s final game against Wigan away at the DW Stadium. With the play-offs effective over barring a more than credible swing of fortune Leeds’ way, it really is a final game of the season for Monk’s Whites.

The best case scenario for Leeds United fans will be a victory against the Latics, a swift reappointment of Garry Monk to an extended deal and a completed takeover that sees Massimo Cellino walk from the club and leave the summer free for unfettered planning.
