Garry Monk takes over at Middlesbrough after shock departure from Leeds

He replaces Aitor Karanka at the Riverside.

GARRY MONK HAS been tasked with guiding Middlesbrough straight back up to the Premier League after the club named him as manager on Friday.

The 38-year-old Englishman — who has impressed at both Swansea in the Premier League and then fallen English giants Leeds in the Championship last season — will be presented to the press on Monday.

“Middlesbrough FC are delighted to confirm the appointment of Garry Monk as the club’s new manager. Garry will be officially unveiled at a media conference on Monday,” read Middlesbrough’s statement.

Monk, who replaces Aitor Karanka on a permanent basis after Steve Agnew was interim manager following the Spaniard’s resignation in mid-March, turned down offers of a new contract with Leeds last month.
