Charlie Taylor says he would be happy to work under Steve Evans again next season

The Leeds United defender was asked if he felt the Scot was the right man for the job.

The future of Leeds United boss Steve Evans continues to be a topic of much debate at present, with the Scot still unsure over his long-term future at the club.

Evans, who arrived after the sacking of Uwe Rosler, has struggled to win over all the Leeds fans despite some improved results.

It would also seem that he has not exactly won the Leeds president Massimo Cellino around. The maverick Italian is believed to be considering the future of his head coach, who is out of contract with the club at the end of the season.

But what do the players think?

That was exactly the question put to Leeds’ player of the year Charlie Taylor this week by BBC Radio Leeds.

He made it clear that he would be more than happy if Evans remained his head coach next season:

“I don’t think anyone knows what’s happening yet. I think that is for the president to decide.

“Obviously if he is the manager again next season then everyone will come back in pre-season looking to impress because I am sure he would have identified a few little transfers that he’ll want.

“He’s played me and I have got nothing to complain about really.”

Cellino is not afraid to change managers. Brian McDermott, Dave Hockaday, Darko Milanic, Neil Redfearn and Uwe Rosler have all been sacked by Cellino already and Evans must fear that he is currently in the crosshairs.

But considering the way he has conducted himself since becoming Leeds boss it would be a very harsh dismissal.
