Head coach on Cambridge United and investment.

Leeds United head coach Garry Monk was quizzed about a variety of topics when talking to the press ahead of Monday’s FA Cup tie with Cambridge United. 

Aser Group Holding, through it's acquisition vehicle Greenfield Investment Pte Ltd, completed an investment of 50 per cent of the Club's share capital on Wednesday.

Speaking about the investment Monk said: “It is positive news, we have been aware of the possibility of this happening for a while and obviously now it is official.

“In Mr Radrizzani’s statement, he clearly has the passion to drive the club forward which is vitally important.

“With his experience in this industry and with the contacts he has, I believe it is really positive for the club.

“I am looking forward to meeting the owners again next week and I’m sure we will discuss the future of the club, how to push it forwards.

“My job is to concentrate on the on-field matters and I will always be focused on trying to improve and get the best out of this group.”

Switching his focus to Monday night, Monk is expecting a tough away tie in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup.

“There is always a chance of an upset, but we are focused on putting as much determination, passion and desire, along with our best football on to the field like we do in every other game,” Monk said.

“We have used the whole squad throughout the season in the league and the cup and I think it is good for the group to have freshness.

“It is about getting the balance right, we want to win the game, but it is also about using the squad correctly.

“Eunan O’Kane and Lewie Coyle are back on the field, we are managing Charlie Taylor on a day to day basis, but we are hopeful he will be back on the pitch in the next few days.

“You always have to look at the bigger fixture and I think it is ridiculous that we have to play on Monday and Friday, it seems to be us more than others affected.

“Cambridge are in really good form, they are doing really well in League Two, so we know it is going to be difficult.

“It is a tight ground, there will be an atmosphere, but we have to concentrate on ourselves, but no games are easy.”
