In pictures: How Steve Evans ranks in the list of Leeds United managers under Massimo Cellino

Leeds manager Steve Evans

Evans was dismissed by Leeds last week and replaced with former Swansea City boss Garry Monk at Elland Road.

Leeds United Chairman Massimo Cellino

Former Swansea City boss Garry Monk became that seventh full-time manager of Leeds United under the reign of controversial Italian owner Massimo Cellino last week when he signed a one-year deal to take over at Elland Road.

That saw the ex-centre-back replace Steve Evans, who had long since become a dead man walking at the Whites after another underwhelming season and who became the latest casualty of Cellino's notorious and controversial trigger-happy approach to the men he employs.

Monk defended Cellino upon his arrival, claiming that the owner is underestimated by many, but in a little over two years since the Italian took charge at Elland Road, he has cut short the reigns of no fewer than six managers, showing a ruthless approach to underwhelming results or personality clashes.

Evans was often criticised by Leeds fans during his tenure, but where does he rank amongst the managers who have come and gone under Cellino? We've ranked each Whites boss since Brian McDermott by their win percentage, and it makes for interesting reading.

1) Neil Redfearn (caretaker)

Ok, so perhaps this one shouldn't really count, but long-time Leeds coach Redfearn enjoyed a summer transfer window and a subsequent successful unbeaten four-game stint as caretaker boss early in 2014-15 before being replaced by Darko Milanic.

2) Steve Evans

Evans was in fact the most successful permanent Leeds boss under Cellino in terms of win ratio, leading the club to 14 wins from his 37 matches in charge during his seven months at the helm. His victory rate of 37.84% makes him the most successful Whites boss in that regard since Simon Grayson.

3) Brian McDermott

There's another asterisk next to McDermott's name in this list, as he was already in the dugout when Cellino took over. Cellino notoriously tried to fire him before his takeover was even ratified, eventually getting his wish in the summer of 2014.

For the sake of interest, McDermott won three and lost just one of the final five fixtures of 2013-14 after the takeover was officially approved by the Football League, but was sacked a month later anyway. Following Evans' sacking, many Leeds fans clamoured on Twitter for the popular McDermott to be reinstated as manager.

4) Neil Redfearn

Redfearn's impressive stint as caretaker boss after McDermott's dismissal convinced Cellino to return to the coach on a full-time basis following the failed experiment of Darko Milanic. Redfearn this time lasted the final seven months of 2014-15, winning 11 of his 33 matches.

5) Dave Hockaday

That percentage was matched, albeit over a far shorter timespan, by former Forest Green Rovers boss and shock appointment Dave Hockaday, who succeeded McDermott before being fired and replaced by caretaker Redfearn just six games into 2014-15.

6) Uwe Rosler

Poor Uwe Rosler was tasked with replacing the fairly steady-handed Redfearn at the start of the most recent season, but never took well to life at Elland Road and had managed just two wins by October before being ousted and replaced by Evans the following day.

7) Darko Milanic

Another surprise appointment, Milanic took over from Redfearn's successful caretaker stint following Hockaday having previously only managed in his native Slovenia and Austria. His short-lived stint is the dictionary definition of 'failed experiment' as Leeds failed to win a single game during his month before Cellino pulled the trigger.
