SA­LUTE TO GREEN ON HIS 600th

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

GARRY Monk in­sists that Robert Green’s pro­fes­sion­al­ism is the key to his longevity as the goal­keeper reaches 600 league ap­pear­ances.

Green, 37, was set to achieve the mile­stone against for­mer club QPR yes­ter­day, and Leeds boss Monk couldn’t be hap­pier for his ev­er­green stop­per.

“I think it’s a mas­sive achieve­ment,” he said of the ex-Nor­wich and West Ham man. “Credit to him, it just high­lights the pro­fes­sional he is.

“You need a lit­tle bit of luck along the way with in­juries and sus­pen­sions, but he’s had a fan­tas­tic ca­reer and he is still go­ing strong.”
