Amid reports that Garry Monk is set to leave Leeds United this summer, former Leeds United favourite Danny Mills has come out and said that he believes the Leeds manager WILL remain in charge next season.

Monk’s contract expires in June, and there are rumours that he may be moving on to bigger and better things, but as quoted by the Daily Star, Mills thinks he will remain in charge.

He said: “Garry was dismissed unfairly from Swansea and he’s come in and done a very good job.”

“He needs to rebuild his career and he’s been great with the media and the players.”

Discussing where Monk could possibly end up, Mills said that the Premier League was not a realistic target.

“The Premier League is probably unlikely and teams that are going up, Brighton and Newcastle, look unlikely to change managers.”

“There really are not  many clubs in the Championship comparable to Leeds in terms of facilities, fans and training ground.”

Leeds United’s season ended in disappointment, as they finished seventh in the Sky Bet Championship, despite spending the majority of the season in the Play-Off places.

But in a strange way, Danny Mills thinks that not getting promoted this season, could work to the Whites’ advantage.

He said: “In the perfect world, if you could choose it, don’t go up this season. Let the club settle and definitely get promoted next year.”

“The club would be on an even more stable footing and those players and the manager would have another years experience.”
