Former Leeds United manager Steve Evans is back in football at Mansfield Town.
Leeds declined to extend Evans' contract beyond the end of last season, despite the 54-year-old leaving them five places better off than when he found them the previous October.
At his Mansfield unveiling, Evans told reporters (via BBC Radio Nottingham's Facebook page) that he was glad of the rest, adding that he gave his life to his previous clubs.
And as far as the Glaswegian is concerned, his former chairmen, including controversial Leeds chief Massimo Cellino, would verify those claims.
"The fans will get everything," Evans said. "They’ll get Steve Evans' life and if you go and ask Massimo Cellino, the owner of Leeds United, if you go and ask Tony Stewart, the owner of Rotherham, you can’t ask Bruce Winfield who is sadly no longer with us, the guy who led the revolution down at Crawley Town along with the Carter family, then they would say you get my life.
"I literally live and breathe it, so that’s what they get plus a wealth of experience now across the years and someone who’s very focussed."
Based on the reactions of most Leeds fans on Twitter, Evans' efforts did not go unappreciated.

Can't believe Evans has gone to stags, but what a great appointment for them, liked the bloke at Leeds, deserved a shot at our job!— Jordan Shepherd (@JordShepherd) November 16, 2016
Mansfield are currently 18th in League Two, but find themselves three points away from both the play-off and relegation places.
But Evans’ record will no doubt encourage the Stags faithful, with promotions at four of his five clubs (Stamford, Boston United, Crawley and Rotherham).
