Steve Evans shares texts he's had from Premier League managers about Leeds United

Leeds United managed to beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1 yesterday evening.

Steve Evans has told BBC Radio Leeds that he has already had messages from Premier League managers in attendance at Elland Road last night praising Leeds United’s second half performance.

Leeds took on Wolverhampton Wanderers yesterday, and they put Kenny Jackett’s side to the sword in the second period.

Leeds scored twice through Sol Bamba and Toumani Diagouraga and even though George Saville netted a consolation for the visitors, Evans' side held on to claim a deserve three points.

And the 53-year-old boss said: “I’ve not seen the president. I don’t even know if he’s here. But if he was I know he’ll be delighted. If he watches the second half, he’ll be absolutely buzzing with it.

“I’ve already had a couple of messages on my phone from people who work at higher level and they’ve already text me saying what a stunning second half performance it was from Leeds.”

One of the Premier League managers who was pictured at Elland Road was Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe.

Howe is believed to have had his eyes on midfielder Lewis Cook, who excelled throughout the match.

Leeds’ win against Wolves has continued their fine run of form, which has seen them start to climb up the Championship standings.

The Whites are currently in 11th place in the second tier, with their next match coming against Hull City at the weekend.
