Former midfielder Vinnie Jones has stated that he still hasn’t got his head around Garry Monk’s decision to leave Leeds.
Monk made his decision in May to quit the club after just a year in charge following the full takeover of Andrea Radrizzani.
He has since been appointed the boss of recently relegated side Middlesbrough, while Danish manager Thomas Christiansen was named his replacement on Thursday.
Now, Jones, who is often outspoken about Leeds via his personal Twitter account has posted on Saturday that he is keeping his reservations about Christiansen as he still hasn’t worked out why Monk walked out on the club.

Christiansen’s only experience in management to date has come with Cypriot sides AEK Larnaca and APOEL.
But, prior to managing Leeds Monk had only had experience of management with Premier League side Swansea, where he was sacked.
Christiansen will now be hoping to have similar success to what Monk had at the Yorkshire giants and last season he led APOEL to the Cypriot top-flight title.
Meanwhile, Monk will be sure to receive a hostile reception from the Leeds fan base once he returns with Middlesbrough to Elland Road in the next campaign.
