Massimo Cellino comments on Steve Evans future at Leeds United

Reports have emerged suggesting that Steve Evans is about to be sacked at Leeds United.

Massimo Cellino has told Sky Sports News, which was broadcast on the morning of the 24th of March, that he is not looking to make a change of Leeds United manager yet.

The Daily Mail have suggested that Fabio Cannavaro is set to take over at Leeds United, with current boss Steve Evans’ future in doubt.

The Mail report that Cellino has lost faith in Evans, after heavy defeats against Brighton & Hove Albion and Huddersfield Town recently.

However, although Cellino admits that he is not happy with results, he says that no decision will be made on Evans’ future until the summer.

“I am a sad man with the way that results have gone this season,” the Italian owner said. “Sometimes, though, I am not happy with my wife but I don’t divorce her. I certainly am not looking to replace Steve Evans.

“I won’t be making any changes until the end of the season then I will look at how the whole season has gone and make a decision for the future.”

Evans has consistently insisted that his remit when he landed the job at Leeds was to save the club from relegation.

The Whites made a poor start to the season under Uwe Rosler, but Evans has been able to guide them up the table.

The 53-year-old boss has helped Leeds climb up to 13th place in the Championship standings, but he hasn’t won over the entirety of the fan base at Elland Road.

Evans has promised that Leeds will be competing for promotion if he is given the chance to stay in charge at Leeds next season.
