Steve Evans shares his state of mind ahead of Leeds board meeting

Steve Evans is in charge of Leeds United until the end of next month.

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans has told The Yorkshire Evening Post that he is focused on his job.

Evans is out of contract at the end of next month, and he has not been offered a new deal.

Club owner Massimo Cellino will hold a meeting of Leeds’s board of directors on Wednesday to discuss the future of the Scotsman and the club’s plans for next season.

“My situation’s unchanged and so’s my focus,” Evans told The Yorkshire Evening Post. “I’m getting on with my job.”

It seems that despite uncertainty over his future, Evans is carrying on as normal. This must be lauded, as it shows just how committed the former Rotherham United boss is to his work.

Evans has done relatively well at Leeds, and he does deserve a new contract and a chance to show what he is capable of in a full season.

It is not easy for managers to take charge of a team after the season had begun, but the Scotsman managed to do well despite that.

Leeds have been become also-rans in the Championship over the last few years, and it is time that the West Yorkshire start to challenge for a top-six finish in the division.
