Middlesbrough manager Garry Monk was in no mood to talk about his former club Leeds United after the 2-1 defeat on Sunday.

Pablo Hernandez and Gianni Alioski’s strikes granted The Whites three points in Monk’s first time back at Elland Road since departing the club in the summer.

The visitors had got onto the scoresheet through Britt Assombalonga’s second-half penalty, but it wasn’t enough as Leeds got back to winning ways.

Monk was in charge of the West Yorkshire outfit for the duration of the 2016/17 season, finishing in 7th place after 46 games, narrowly missing out on the play-offs.

The former Swansea man made the switch to Middlesbrough in the summer and after a tough start, he now sees his side sitting within the top six of the Sky Bet Championship.

Discussing the atmosphere on his return to Leeds, Monk said “look it’s not about me. What’s happened has happened, I’ve said my side and the club have said their side and that’s done and dusted.”

Monk’s men will be looking to bounce back from defeat to Leeds when they host struggling Birmingham City at the Riverside on Wednesday.
