Leeds United captain Sol Bamba admits his initial worries under Steve Evans

The Ivorian was a big fan of former boss Uwe Rosler.

Leeds United fans will not need to be told that their captain Sol Bamba is not one to mince his words.

The Ivorian says what is on his mind and that has often seen him be honest and frank about the occasionally controversial scenarios at Elland Road.

One such incident was when Uwe Rosler was sacked. Bamba came out at that moment and made it clear he was not happy with the decision.

This week he has mentioned Rosler again.

Speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post the club captain revealed his concerns when Rosler was moved on and Steve Evans brought in:

“I arrived at the start of the year and there has been a lot of improvement. If I am honest, I thought we took some steps back when Uwe Rosler left.

“It felt like we had taken two steps forward but then four back. We were starting all over again.

“But, at the minute, we are looking good and I think people can see the improvement."

So it seems as though Bamba is now coming round to the management of Evans and is finally letting go of Rosler.

He was a big favourite under the German but has struggled for fitness and form since he left the club, with Liam Cooper excelling in his place.

Bamba will be hoping to get his best defensive form back in the coming weeks and to solidify his place in the Evans starting XI.

As much of a fan of Rosler as Bamba must have been, the fact is Evans is doing a better job at Elland Road and Leeds should be pleased with their current position.
