Leeds United have yet another new man at the helm and he has already ran the rule over his new players.

There are few dull days in the life of a Leeds United supporter and such was the case on Monday when Uwe Rosler was sacked and replaced by former Rotherham United manager Steve Evans.

The news was greeted with the usual mixture of anger, acceptance and downright befuddlement, but whatever Leeds supporters think of the appointment Evans will be their manager for as long as owner Massimo Cellino sees fit.

Evans took training on Monday morning, quickly getting used to his Leeds players ahead of their Championship clash with Fulham on Wednesday evening.

Leeds are currently 18th in the Championship following their 2-1 defeat to leaders Brighton & Hove Albion at the weekend.

That match proved to be Rosler’s last in charge and having overseen just two victories to date it was no real surprise to see him move on.

Evans’ appointment, on the other hand, was a leftfield move and it will be interesting to see what happens at Elland Road both on the pitch and off it in the weeks to come.
