Sheffield Wednesday manager Garry Monk has revealed that he and Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa were involved in a recent meeting together.
Championship managers held a meeting to discuss the state of the currently-suspended 2019/20 season and, according to ex-Leeds manager Monk, there was a widespread agreement that the remaining fixtures should be played out.
That is despite the Telegraph reporting on Tuesday that Hull City have voiced their concerns to the EFL about finishing the season in a strongly-worded email to Rick Parry and the other 23 second-tier clubs.
But based on what Monk has shared, Hull manager Grant McCann was on board with the idea to finish the season, just like Bielsa is.
“We had a Championship managers’ meeting the other day and I think we are all in agreement that we want to complete the season,” said Monk, as quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post.
“I think that is the right thing to do. We’re all in agreeance with that.”
At least we can rely on Monk – which makes a change.
It is no surprise at all that Hull are now opposing the plans to restart the season given their precarious position just above the relegation zone.
McCann probably didn’t want to bring anything up in the managers’ meeting the other day to avoid criticism and potentially avoid leaking information before it was meant to go out.
As long as it is just Hull and a couple of others who don’t want to start the season then Leeds should get their wish of finishing off the campaign.
