Leeds fans urge Monk to recall 23-year-old to the starting line-up v Burton
By Harvey Byrne
Leeds fans have urged manager Garry Monk to recall full-back star Charlie Taylor to the starting line-up against Burton.
The 23-year-old left-back has started just three league games for Monk’s team since picking up an injury in the 1-0 win over Brentford in December.
The more experienced Gaetano Berardi has seemingly became the young manager’s first choice for the left-back position since, but after the 1-0 defeat against Wolves on Monday fans on social media are now keen to see Taylor make his way back into the team.
The Yorkshire giants are currently gearing up to make the trip to the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday where they will take on Burton and supporters have called for Taylor to start.
One fan shared that Berardi should be given a rest for the weekend with Taylor replacing him, while others felt that the one-time capped Switzerland international should move to the right.

Taylor has made 103 appearances for Leeds in total since breaking through the club’s academy, but his current deal at the club is set to run out in the summer with no signs of a new contract being offered yet.
However, the young defender could prove priceless if he performs well enough to help the club achieve promotion at the end of the campaign.
