Steve Evans’ response when asked what changes he has made at Leeds

Steve Evans replaced Uwe Rosler as the Leeds United head coach last month.

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans explained on the Gillette Soccer Saturday show on Sky Sports News HQ on Saturday afternoon what he has changed at the club since replacing Uwe Rosler last month.

“We have relaxed things a lot more around the training ground,” said Evans when asked what changes he has made at Leeds. “We have changed the shape of the team and, of course, we may go and change it again.”

“I quite like the players to come in at 10:15am (for 11am training sessions),” added the Scotsman. “I want them at the training ground smiling, happy. I want an environment in which they want to drive in.”

Leeds have been doing well under Evans, who appears to have brought confidence back among the players and the fans.

The West Yorkshire outfit 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.

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

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