Karl Robinson to Leeds United? Here's what Steve Evans said about him earlier in the season

Karl Robinson is currently the odds on favourite to land the job at Leeds United.

Milton Keynes Dons boss Karl Robinson is currently the favourite to take over at Leeds United from Steve Evans, and it is fair to say that there is no love lost between the two managers.

Leeds are expected to part ways with Evans in the coming days, with Massimo Cellino yet to offer the 53-year-old a new contract.

Evans’ current deal at Leeds is due to expire in June, and Robinson has been tipped to be the man to take over.

Robinson is currently odds-on to get the job at Leeds, and that would surely add insult to injury for Evans.

When Leeds met MK Dons earlier in the season, Robinson was quick to praise Whites midfielder Lewis Cook.

But Evans said to OneMK, at the time: "I don't think much of Karl Robinson, so I won't be commenting on anything.”

The reason why Evans does not have a particularly positive opinion of Robinson is not entirely clear.

Evans has previously stated his desire to stay on at Leeds, and he is continuing to work hard, despite the end of the season.

Evans has been in at Thorp Arch on a regular basis as he starts planning for next campaign, but it would be a surprise if he is still in the Elland Road dugout at the start of the 2016/17 term.
