Peterborough chairman replies to Leeds fan on Twitter, gives Steve Evans verdict

The Peterborough United chairman responded to a Leeds supporter on social media.

Darragh MacAnthony took to Twitter on Thursday night to respond to a Leeds United fan who urged him to invest in the Yorkshire club.

MacAnthony is currently the chairman of Peterborough but a Leeds supporter tweeted him asking about investment in the Elland Road outfit.

However, the Posh chairman says he is happy where he is, despite being 'touched' by the offer.

And MacAnthony also gave his verdict on new boss Steve Evans, who he feels will get Leeds going again despite a minimal impact in Yorkshire so far.

Evans has made a big impression in his dealings with the press, sending out plenty of bold messages.

But, after three games, Leeds have just two points to back up the new head coach's words. Any coach would need time to sort a struggling side out, of course, but supporters were left understandably frustrated during Thursday night's limp display against Blackburn Rovers.

Blackburn left Elland Road with a 2-0 win and the Whites are without a victory there in seven months.

Next up for Evans is another Championship clash at home, this time against Cardiff City.
