Monk outlines the changes needed to Leeds squad over the summer

By Matt Bullin

Leeds United boss Garry Monk has revealed that he believes Leeds’ squad needs to be overhauled ahead of next season.

The 38-year-old’s comments come after his side look to have missed out on a finish in the play-offs.

His side drew 3-3 on Saturday with Norwich at Elland Road, earning a point despite being 3-0 down at one stage.

Steven Naismith netted early and Nelson Oliveira bagged a brace in the first period and it looked as though they would go into the break three goals to the good – only for Chris Wood to slide home in first half injury time to hand his side a lifeline.

Kyle Bartley and Pablo Hernandez then both scored in the second period to level the scores, but United could not find a winner.

The result leaves them needing a win against Wigan, Sheffield Wednesday to beat Fulham and a dramatic 14-goal swing next weekend if they are to have a chance of finishing in the play-offs.

Speaking to LUTV, as quoted by Leeds United’s official Twitter account, Monk spoke of the need for change in the squad.

He said: “There needs to be a transition of the squad now, we need to build on it and what we have done this season.

“It is a lesson and hopefully the players will improve and come back better in the future for it.”

Leeds has earlier sat in third in the Championship, but having won only once in their last five, they have slipped out of the play-offs.
