Izzy Brown becomes first Sheffield Wednesday player to break silence on Garry Monks exit – Yorkshire Live

Izzy Brown has come the first Sheffield Wednesday player to speak out after the departure of Garry Monk.

The Owls confirmed that the former Leeds United and Birmingham City boss had left the club on Monday night despite four points from his last two games.

A run of seven wins in 34 matches proved to be the undoing of Monk after a successful start to his tenure, which saw the club third at Christmas.

Despite a horrendous run of form after the turn of the year, he was allowed to bring in his own backroom staff and reshape the squad during the summer transfer window.

One of the first players to arrive was Brown, with Wednesday fighting off serious competition from Championship rivals to land the Chelsea man on loan.

“I think it is an important season for Izzy,” Monk told the club’s official website after getting the deal over the line.

“I have discussed it with him. An important season for him to perform and do it consistently to reach the levels that he can reach.

“He has got fantastic ability and we all know that. He has shown it already in the short time he has been with the group.

“He adds competition and quality as well.”

Now, after the exit of Monk 24 hours ago, Brown has put out a tweet thanking his former boss.

He wrote on Twitter: “I appreciate everything you done [sic] for me on & off the pitch. Thank you Gaffa [sic].”

Brown is the first player to respond to Monk’s exit on social media, with the hunt well underway as the Owls look to recruit a new boss.

Tony Pulis is the bookmakers’ favourite at the end of play on Tuesday, with Paul Cook and David Wagner also high up in the betting.
