'Down the toilet', 'Such a waste' - Leeds fans react to reported Garry Monk development
Leeds United fans have been out in force on Twitter after it was reported that their former manager Garry Monk was being lined up to replace Steve Cotterill at Birmingham.
The Guardian has reported that Monk, 38, is in pole position to take charge at St Andrew’s as Blues look to try and avoid relegation from the Championship.
Monk left Leeds at the end of last season in the wake of Andrea Radrizzani’s takeover at Elland Road.
The former Swansea player was then hired by Middlesbrough following their relegation from the Premier League but in December he was sacked by the Teessiders and replaced with Tony Pulis.
Now, Leeds fans have been reacting on Twitter to the development surround their former manager’s future, and many seem shocked that he has been able to find a job so soon after leaving Boro.
However others seem to wish that he was back at Elland Road.

Garry Monk's managerial career is truly going down the toilet.
From snaking Leeds, to failing with £50mil+ at Boro and now, apparently, to financially ruined Birmingham.
Odds on him managing Mansfield in a few years time? #lufc

The Guardian reports that Birmingham have had their eyes on Monk ever since he left Swansea in 2015.
It is understood that Gordon Strachan has also been in talks with Blues, who sit 22nd in the Championship standings and three points away from safety.
In other Leeds United news, Heckingbottom has admitted that he cannot do anything to improve this £3million Whites player.
