Leeds United boss Steve Evans' latest response to David Moyes rumours

The Leeds boss is keeping his mind on the present.

Leeds United boss Steve Evans today held his pre-match press conference for the clash with his former club Rotherham United at the weekend. Evans will be up against a former Leeds boss in Neil Redfearn in the Yorkshire derby so he has plenty to be focusing on regarding matters of the present.

However his future is already in doubt.

It has been reported that David Moyes is the preferred manager of potential takeover option Steve Parkin. Last night it was reported by The Mirror that the former Everton and Manchester United manager was keen on the job if Parkin took over at Elland Road from controversial Italian Massimo Cellino.

Evans was asked about the potential for Moyes to take his job in his press conference today and he gave short-shrift. The Yorkshire Evening Post report him as responding:

"I can only control the controllable."

Fair play to Evans for not divulging what is, for now, a mere fantasy.

The Scot has just got off the ground at Leeds with two wins and two clean sheets in a row for the club and he will believe that this weekend he will be able to stretch those records to three.

As for Moyes talk? Maybe wait for this apparent takeover to happen first.
