Leeds United appointed Steve Evans as their new manager yesterday.
Rotherham United supporters have largely backed Steve Evans to do a good job at Leeds United, after he was confirmed as the Whites' new manager yesterday.
Evans takes over from Uwe Rosler at Elland Road in a move which has frustrated Leeds supporters.
Massimo Cellino has operated with a trigger-happy approach to appointing managers since he arrived, and many Whites fans had hoped Rosler would be given a long-term chance to make an impression at the club.
However, after just 12 games, he was dispensed with, and Evans has been chosen to replace him.
The boisterous boss' arrival has not been universally welcomed, but supporters of his old club, Rotherham, still hold him in high regard.
He had not been out of work long when he got the call from Cellino to takeover at Leeds, where he arguably faces the biggest challenge of his career to date.
It is a test which Rotherham fans feel he will rise to, with their reaction on social media site Twitter suggesting he could do a good job at their Yorkshire rivals.
Don't understand some of our fans going on about Evans. He deserved to go to a bigger club his record is outstanding #rufc— joe hadfield (@twinj1) October 19, 2015
Regardless of his past off the pitch, Leeds have got a decent manager in Steve Evans. Not one RUFC wanted him when he was appointed....— Johnny Gibbins (@royalfunkness) October 19, 2015
