Evans’ response when asked if he cares what people say about him

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans comments on what he thinks about what people say about him.

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans said on the Gillette Soccer Saturday show on Sky Sports News HQ on Saturday afternoon that he does not give much importance to what people outside the club say about him.

“Well, everyone has got feelings, haven’t they?” said Evans when asked if it is important to him what people outside the club say about him.

“Who says is important. If it is the opposition supporters, then they are going to say it if there is a game. It’s who says that’s important.”

Evans seems to be his own man and appears to be a strong personality, and that is what is needed to manage a big and unique club like Leeds.

The Scotsman was appointed the Leeds head coach last month, and not many would have been convinced.

The former Rotherham United manager has done a good job at Elland Road so far and has started to pick up positive results.

Leeds started the month with a 1-0 victory over Cardiff City at Elland Road in the Championship.

It was the Whites’ first win at home in almost eight months, and they followed that up with a 3-0 defeat of Huddersfield Town away from home at the John Smith's Stadium in the league.

The West Yorkshire outfit are 15th in the Championship table at the moment with 19 points from 16 matches, six points above the relegation zone.

Leeds will return to action on Saturday when they take on Rotherham United at Elland Road in the Championship.
