Alan Brazil: Why would anybody want to manage Leeds United?

Leeds United Crest

Leeds United are expected to part ways with Steve Evans in the coming days.

Alan Brazil has questioned why any manager would want to move to Leeds United on the Sports Breakfast Show, which was broadcast on TalkSPORT on 12th May.

Leeds look set to be on the look out for yet another manager, with Steve Evans widely expected to leave the Yorkshire side in the coming weeks.

Evans’ contract expires in June, and he has not been presented with a new deal yet.

Leeds are believed to be looking at a range of new managers to take charge, with John Sheridan currently the favourite to take over at Elland Road.

However, Brazil has questioned why any manager would want to join Leeds at this moment in time.

“Why would you go there? It’s a great club, with a massive fan base, but why would you go there?“ he questioned.

Leeds have been badly mismanaged for a number of years now, and they have been starved of success.

The Whites may be one of the biggest clubs in the Football League, but they have rarely threatened to make it out of the Championship since dropping into the second tier back in 2004.

Evans guided Leeds to a 13th place finish this season, but that does not appear to have been enough to convince Massimo Cellino that he is the right man for the job.
