'Prefer Rosler' - Norwich fans react to reported interest in Leeds boss Monk
By Harvey Byrne
Norwich fans on Twitter have given a mixed response to reports claiming they want Garry Monk as their next manager if Leeds don’t win promotion.
The Daily Mirror claimed on Monday evening that the Canaries’ new sporting Director Stuart Webber is hot on the trail of former boss Alex Neil’s successor and he rates ex-Swansea chief Monk highly.
Many believe the 38-year-old was unfortunate to lose his job at the Welsh side and this season he has helped move Leeds from a mid-table side to one battling for a play-off spot.
However, with two matches of the season left the Yorkshire giants are sat in seventh place and three points behind Fulham in sixth.
This may mean that Monk could look elsewhere in the summer if Leeds aren’t promoted with his contract set to expire in 2018.

The Whites support would understandably be very disappointed if Monk did move on, while some sections of the Norwich fan base are less enthused.
The Canaries support on social media seem to be divided with many believing it would be a step in the right direction for the club, while others gave a sense of being underwhelmed.
Some fans even claimed they’d rather have former Leeds boss Uwe Rosler, while on the other side a Norwich fan said he’d love to see Monk as the manager.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Would love to have Garry monk as manager. Leeds would be very very silly to get rid of him, would not put past Cellino though #ncfc

Rosler, 48, is currently in charge of League One outfit Fleetwood who are battling in third place as they aim for promotion to England’s second tier.
However, it has not been a plain sailing career in management for the former Germany international and he was relived from his duties at Leeds in October 2015 after just two wins from 12 matches in charge.
