Garry Monk on managing Wednesday

Recommended Posts


Speaking at a CPD coaching course at Queen's University's Dub sporting complex, Monk said: “My spells at Leeds, Middlesbrough, Birmingham and Wednesday all turned out to be fire-fighting jobs, where I had about a five-week window to improve results before pressure came to bear from fans and the board. 

“All those clubs had fallen from grace but their supporters, and chairmen, still had a high level of expectations when it came to performances. 

“I basically had to put in a system of play that suited the squad of players I had at those clubs in an attempt to get us out of trouble. That is the reality of managing at a club where you know you've both a limited budget and time to get things right.”
