Leeds United boss Steve Evans believes he can take club to Premier League

Elland Road East Stand

The new appointment is hopeful of his future at Elland Road.

Leeds United have had yet another tumultuous week. They started with the sacking of Uwe Rosler after a poor start to the season under the German and they immediately installed Steve Evans as boss. The Scot has slowly started to win around Leeds fans ever since and the team's performance against Fulham on Wednesday would have helped.

However Evans will know that his job is never safe under the controversial maverick that is Massimo Cellino. He has the Sword of Damocles dangling above him at all times and could easily be sent packing by the trigger-happy Cellino.

But he is not thinking about that. Instead he has his eyes on remaining at the club for a long time. In fact, he wants to be the man to guide the club back to the Premier League.

He told his press conference today, as reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post:

"I want to be here for years. I want to be the guy that takes them to the Premier League."

Of course that is easier said than done. Many a manager has come through the doors at Elland Road since they lost their top-flight status and said the exact same thing but then failed.

Leeds fans will of course hope that Evans is the man.
