Steve Evans has replaced Uwe Rosler as the Leeds United head coach.

Leeds United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the dismissal of Uwe Rosler as the head coach and the subsequent appointment of Steve Evans in his place.

Rosler has been sacked as the Leeds boss after just 12 games in charge, having been appointed in the role at the end of last season.

The 46-year-old took charge of the West Yorkshire outfit In May, but a poor run of results this season seems to convinced club chairman Massimo Cellino that the German is not the right man for the job.

The Italian entrepreneur has replaced Rosler with Steve Evans, telling BBC Radio Leeds that the former Rotherham United manager has signed a rolling contract.

Evans, 52, will be Leeds' sixth head coach since Cellino took over the club in April 2014.

Leeds are 18th in the Championship table at the moment with 11 points from as many matches, just three points above the relegation zone.

Following the managerial change, Leeds fans took to Twitter to have their say.
