Richard Keys delivers his verdict on Garry Monk at Leeds after Bradley sacking
By Amir Mir
Richard Keys has stated that Leeds have a “proper man in charge of a proper club” after Swansea sacked Bob Bradley as manager.
The Premier League club parted company with American on Tuesday evening and are now looking for their third manager since sacking Monk in December 2015.
Since then Monk has taken charge at the Yorkshire club, their seventh manager since owner Massimo Cellino purchased the club in 2014.
He has guided them to the play-off places in his first season in charge of the Championship club as they are on course to finish in the top six.
Former Sky Sports presenter Keys offered his verdict on Monk after the sacking of Swan’s boss Bradley as posted on his personal Twitter account.

The Whites have not tasted Premier League football in over 12 years, but Monk has provided them with their biggest hope yet of returning to the top flight.
They are eight points off the automatic places as they travel to the Midlands on Thursday night to take on Steve Bruce’s Aston Villa.
Monk’s side beat their promotion rivals, who are seven points behind them in the table, in the reverse fixture as they will look to inflict another defeat on Bruce’s men.
Villa have not lost a Championship fixture on home soil this term, winning their last five on the trot, including beating Burton Albion 2-1 on Boxing Day.
