It’s been a sad day for Leeds United fans, following the resignation of Garry Monk.

Leeds have had a difficult time with managers in the past few years, but it seemed that in Monk they had found a man who could lead the club forward.

But just two days after the takeover by Andrea Radrizzani was announced, Monk has handed in his resignation after failing to agree a new deal with the Italian owner.

The footballing world has of course reacted to Monk leaving Leeds United, and former Whites boss Steve Evans has had his say on the matter.

Speaking to Sky, the current Mansfield Town boss said: “I feel sorry for the Leeds United supporters. Once again they will have to get used to a new manager.”

He was however very complimentary of Monk.

Speaking about his time at Elland Road, Evans said: “It has to be said he has done nothing short of a magnificent job.”

Rumours are now surfacing about who will become the next manager of Leeds United.

Aitor Karanka is the bookies favourite for the role, with Hull City boss Marco Silva also being linked with the job.

Reports coming out of Italy have also suggested that former Napoli and Inter Milan manager Walter Mazzarri is also someone who Radrizzani is interested in.

As for Monk, his destination remains unknown. He has been heavily linked with Middlesbrough in recent weeks, and following his resignation the odds on him to take over at the Riverside dropped to evens.
