Leeds United fans react on Twitter to David Moyes rumours

David Moyes

Would Leeds United fans rather stick with Steve Evans than appoint David Moyes?

 

A quiet week for Leeds United? There is surely no such thing!

The Whites have been named as the club most likely to be David Moyes' next destination as manager, after his sacking by Spanish club Real Sociedad.

Odds were further cut overnight with SkyBet even listing him as short as 3/1. It has since risen to 5/1.

Even by Leeds United's standards, bringing in Moyes right now would constitute a big surprise.

Just last month they fired Uwe Rosler, and appointed Steve Evans in his place. Bringing in the former Rotherham boss was a controversial move by owner Massimo Cellino, but he has been winning fans over ever since.

He had a tricky start with just two points from his opening two games, but has since coached his side to back-to-back wins for the first time this season.

From David Moyes' perspective, joining Leeds would be a strange career move. He was seen at Everton as the embodiment of stability, and had hope to see out a six-year contract at Manchester United.

He did not even last a full season at Old Trafford, and his spell in Spain has been similarly short and just as unsuccessful.

Going to Leeds and becoming Massimo Cellino's seventh head coach in less than two years is not a recipe to correct his unfortunate record, and is only a way in which he will probably end up back on the job market at a record speed.

Leeds fans have reacted to the news on social media, and their comments clearly convey their desire for stability, and belief in Steve Evans.

Here is a look at what supporters have had to say...
