Garry Monk has stated he is dreaming of Leeds facing a “really good” Premier League side in the quarter-finals of the League Cup.
The Yorkshire club defeated Norwich 3-2 on penalties at Elland Road in a dramatic game, which saw the home side come from behind on two occasions to draw 2-2 after extra-time.
The club’s academy graduate Ronaldo Vieira, 18, scored the decisive kick, after keeper Marco Silvestri saved three spot-kicks.
After the win former Premier League boss Monk began to dream big about what type of opposition he wants for the quarter-final tie.
“You saw it all tonight. You saw their true colours. Everyone who watched that group should be very proud of them,” said Monk, as quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post. “People can go home dreaming of a big cup tie in the next round. Football’s about going home with memories.
“You always have to go toe-to-toe. Even with a man less, it doesn’t matter. This was a true test of character and they were all heroes in the context of the game.”
“I’d love to get another game here, against a really good Premier League side. Imagine this being a full house with this type of occasion.”
The draw for the quarter-final stage will take place on Wednesday night, once the rest of the cup fixtures have been completed.
At this moment in time Arsenal, Hull, Liverpool and Newcastle have progressed following their wins on Tuesday night.
Both Manchester clubs are set to face off on Wednesday evening, as West Ham host Chelsea and Sunderland travel to Southampton.
