Monk dismisses concerns about future at Leeds

Leeds United manager Garry Monk has dismissed claims he won't be given the chance to implement his plans for the club.

Reports have surfaced that his future could be in doubt after the club's poor start to the season. Leeds picked up just their second win in the league against Blackburn Rovers and are languishing just two points above the drop zone.

With an owner in Massimo Cellino renowned for sacking managers and wanting instant success, Monk needs his side to put together a run of wins or he could be Cellino's seventh sacking in just over two years.

That does not seem the case as manager Paul Heckingbottom has left the door open for the midfielder to return in January.

The desire to play football seems to have impressed Heckingbottom rather than sulking on the sidelines.

Heckingbottom has challenged the 23 year old to rack up goals and assists so upon his return he will act as a new signing.

Moncur left the club for Peterborough United just two months after signing from Colchester this summer.
