Garry Monk: Leeds United manager given one-match touchline ban

Leeds United head coach Garry Monk

Leeds have won five, drawn one and lost five of Monk’s 11 league matches in charge

Leeds United boss Garry Monk has been given a one-match touchline ban and a £2,000 fine for using abusive language in the loss to Bristol City last month.

The 37-year-old was sent to the stands during the closing minutes of the 1-0 defeat at Ashton Gate on 27 September.

He admitted a Football Association misconduct charge of “using abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official”.

Monk will serve his ban in Saturday’s Championship match at Derby.
