Should Evans stay as Leeds boss? 3,400 fans respond, give verdict

Elland Road East Stand

Should Steve Evans stay as Leeds boss? Supporters have had their say and are split on the matter.

Leeds United boss Steve Evans is a man under pressure after his side were torn apart by Brighton.

Brighton won 4-0, scoring all four goals at half-time, and Evans was instructed not to talk to the press by owner Massimo Cellino after the game.

After the defeat we asked Leeds supporters to vote in our poll on Evans' future, and received 3,413 votes.

Fans have had their say on the head coach, and are split in their verdict on whether he should stay or go.

 

46 per cent of supporters responded to say he should stay, while 54 per cent of the fans who voted said Evans should leave the club.

In the short term, Evans has been given the dreaded vote of confidence by owner Massimo Cellino, who told SkySports that his job is safe, and added: "The best way to speak with fans is to play good football and not just talking in the media."

Evans is Cellino's fifth appointment as head coach so there is no guarantee he will survive. It would appear that he needs to convince over the final two months of the season that he is the right man, and there is a substantial section of support which need winning over too.
