Modou Barrow: This is what Garry Monk expects from the Leeds players
By Harvey Byrne
Leeds winger Modou Barrow has shared that he believes manager Garry Monk expects a high work ethic from his players.
The 24-year-old was brought to the United Kingdom in 2014 by then Swansea boss Monk after impressing in Sweden with Ostersunds.
But, his career with the Welsh side has not gone as he would have hoped and in 55 appearances for the Premier League team he has returned just two goals and seven assists.
He will now be aiming to help Leeds win promotion back to the top flight as they currently sit in fifth place in the Championship table and the player has shared what Monk asks of his players after working with him at both Swansea and now the Yorkshire-based side.
“Same thing he expects from the me he expects from everyone in the squad.” started Barrow speaking to BBC Radio Leeds.

“He wants us to work hard for each other on and off the pitch and he wants us to play well together as a team and go out as a team and try to be there for our teammates on the pitch and outside the pitch and it’s important for the team and all that.
“What he expects from me is to come and take the changes and give 100 per cent and help as much as I can here.”
Barrow has made two substitute appearances for Leeds since his move in the winter window, totalling 40 minutes.
He will soon be targeting more minutes out on the pitch for the second tier side and he will be hoping his first start can come against Ipswich on Saturday.
With 17 points and eight places currently between the two teams in the Championship table Leeds will be looking to take all three points from Portman Road and Barrow will certainly be looking to play his part.
