Robert Snodgrass compares Leeds' instability to the Ken Bates era

Elland Road East Stand

The Hull midfielder has been discussing former club Leeds.

Hull City and former Leeds United midfielder Robert Snodgrass believes things at Elland Road have gotten worse since his days at the club, according to BBC Radio Leeds.

Snodgrass played for Leeds while Ken Bates was in charge of the Yorkshire club but he admits things look worse from the outside these days.

Indeed, the Scot believes there 'isn't really any stability' at United right now, ahead of his visit to Leeds with Hull City in the Championship this weekend.

Speaking on Friday night, Snodgrass told BBC Radio Leeds: "With Ken Bates, there were problems in my time at Leeds. The situation at Leeds has probably just got worse. There isn’t really any stability."

The latest episode in the Massimo Cellino saga is the new 'pie-tax,' which Leeds fans have already made their feelings clear about.

Can the Whites pick up a precious Championship win against Snodgrass's Hull City this weekend? In terms of stability, even a win here wouldn't guarantee a few weeks of peace at Elland Road.

But boss Steve Evans looks determined to keep things as calm as possible in Yorkshire and he did recently achieve back-to-back wins. It is simply a case of whether the Leeds boss can motivate his senior players once more.
