Eddie Gray makes interesting comments on Steve Evans' Leeds future

Former Leeds legend believes there is a chance Steve Evans could be kept on as head coach.

Former Leeds United star Eddie Gray has told Radio Yorkshire that he could see Steve Evans being kept on as head coach.

Speaking to the station at 8pm on Wednesday evening, Gray said that he felt Evans has done enough to earn a shot, but urged club owner Massimo Cellino to make up his mind one way or another as quickly as possible.

He also said that regardless of who is in charge, Cellino needs to let them make the football decisions which are required.

He said: "The longer it goes, the more it leads me to believe he's going to be here. I think he's done well.

"If he gets the opportunity, I think he'd have a go. Look at his track record over the years, he's done well, although I still don't think performances have been great.

"If the president decides he's going with Steve, he's got to do it now. Give him the players he thinks can win the championship.

"Some of the players coming the Football Club have not been good enough. If not and somebody else comes in, they have got to have the same freedom. Massimlo has got to make his mind up."

A board meeting scheduled for Wednesday did not take place, delayed 24 hours, and Evans' future could become clearer after that is finally held today (Thursday).

Cellino has regularly changed his managers at both Cagliari and Leeds, with little stability leading to a lack of success.

Evans is priced with bookies SkyBet at 10/1 to be in charge on the first day of the Championship season in August.
