The best questions from Leeds fans on Monk Twitter Q&A
By Dominic Toner
Leeds fans have been given the chance on Twitter to ask their manager Garry Monk any question – and there have been some interesting responses.
The 38-year-old has become a huge favourite at Elland Road since his summer appointment and has helped the club become major promotion candidates.
The Whites are vying for a return to the Premier League and are currently fourth-placed in the Championship table.
Monk’s side look set to battle it out in the play-offs at the end of the season, unless they can bridge the eight-point gap to second-placed Brighton in the automatic spots.
Leeds supporters have shown their appreciation for Monk by asking him to sign a new contract with the club, but one person did ask the situation regarding defender Pontus Jansson.

Leeds managed to record an impressive 2-0 victory over Brighton at the weekend and leave them in good spirits going into the international break.
They managed to continue their strong home form this season and Monk has made Elland Road a fortress once again.
However, fans were left confused on Saturday as senior defender Jansson was omitted from the starting line-up and replaced by Liam Cooper.
The centre-back has been an ever-present in the starting XI this season and played a main role in their push towards promotion, but was an unused substitute in the pivotal Brighton game.
Leeds supporters will be keen to find out from Monk the reason behind dropping popular figure Jansson, with the explanation not yet in the public domain.
