When asked for his opinion of Evans, Warnock said: “He makes me look like an angel. He cares and he’s passionate - he’s always been like that. You can’t take that out of certain people. He knows what a great club he’s at now, because until you take over [at Leeds] you don’t realise that it’s such a great club.”
Evans has been Leeds head coach since October 19, taking charge of six games so far as boss of the Elland Road club.
He has won two, lost two and drawn two for a win percentage of 33.3%, and whilst Leeds’ form has not been exceptional, there are clear improvements since the time of Uwe Rosler.
Whilst he is tactically simple and sets his teams up to play 4-4-2, Evans’ biggest strengths are his motivation and passion that he can extend to his players.
This is what Warnock likes most about Evans, as he himself is remarkably similar to the current Leeds boss.
Evans ‘cares and is passionate’ about his job, and he has shown this since arriving at Elland Road. He appears to be falling in love with the Yorkshire club, and whilst this will not give him time in Massimo Cellino’s mind, it will certainly endear him to the fans.
The game on Saturday is between 19th placed QPR and 20th placed Leeds, who sit one point behind they West London opponents heading into the fixture. A win for either team can only send them as high as 12th place, dependent on other results, but both sides need those valuable three points.
