Don Hutchison comments on Leeds United's troubles and lack of stability

Massimo Cellino 1

The former Scotland international believes Leeds can be great again.

Leeds United have been in good form recently and there is surely some light at the end of this topsy-turvy season that Leeds can push on for promotion next term.

Of course that might depend on what fidgety owner Massimo Cellino decides to do in the summer.

The Italian has been criticised for his running of the club and the constant change of managers at the club.

It is now looking increasingly likely that current Leeds boss Steve Evans will be moved on in the summer and that would be yet another change in managers from the controversial chairman.

One former professional does not believe that is the right strategy from Cellino. Don Hutchison, a former Sheffield United player, believes that Leeds need to keep the club stable. He told ESPN Sports this week:

“There’s been so many controversial decisions from the chairman and his family to run Leeds United how they think is fit and proper.

“Managerial decisions have come and gone. Six in the last couple of years and there never seems to be stability with Leeds United. That’s the biggest thing, they need to stabilise that club.

“But Leeds is one of the biggest clubs in England and if someone can get them back into the Premier League they’ll get their fanbase sky-high again, I think they’re still getting 20-25 thousand in the Championship anyway.

“If they can get there I am sure they will kick on again.”

If Cellino does decide to sack Evans it would be yet another change of manager at Leeds. Brian McDermott, Dave Hockaday, Darko Milanic, Neil Redfearn and Uwe Rosler have all been giving the cut whilst Cellino was in charge.

If Evans goes again then Leeds fans will wonder if they will ever have a settled gaffer under Cellino’s rule.
