Steve Evans believes he could guide Leeds United into mid-table working just three days a week

Leeds United East Stand

Leeds United are currently in 12th place in the Championship table.

Steve Evans has claimed to BBC Radio Leeds that he could work three days a week as Leeds United manager and still guide them to mid-table next season.

Evans has made an impact since arriving at Elland Road, and he has taken the Yorkshire side from the outskirts of the relegation zone, into 12th position in the Championship this season.

The 53-year-old boss now believes that he has laid the foundations for next term, and he claims that he could easily help the side repeat this season’s finish.

“I think the Championship will be more difficult, but I could turn up here to Thorp Arch three days a week and I could deliver mid-table, with the group we’ve got,” Evans said. “But I live and breath it, and I’m 24 hours, seven days a week.”

Evans aim, of course, it not simply to take Leeds into mid-table next season and he has already gone on record to state that he believes he could get them into the thick of the promotion battle.

Evans says that if he is backed he will take Leeds into the top six, which should be the club’s minimum expectation.

However, whether the Scottish boss will be handed the chance to keep his job at Elland Road remains to be seen.

Evans’ current contract at Leeds expires at the end of the season, and he is yet to be presented with a new deal.

Evans has already been linked with both the Celtic and the Peterborough United managerial jobs.
