Leeds boss Steve Evans says QPR and Fulham are most attractive Championship job opportunities

The Leeds United boss has been speaking about Championship rivals Queens Park Rangers and Fulham.

Leeds United manager Steve Evans has been speaking to Sky Sports News about the current managerial vacancies at some Championship clubs.

Evans recently arrived at Elland Road after the sacking of Uwe Rosler, and having previously been in charge at Rotherham United he knows the perils of managing in the second tier where the pressure is constantly on to perform and ultimately win promotion to the Premier League.

A number of Championship clubs are currently looking for new permanent managers having recently parted company with their old ones, and in light of that Evans was asked who he thought were the most attractive clubs for potential new bosses.

Speaking to Sky Sports News at 10:00am on Wednesday, the Leeds boss said, “I think if you are a certain manager you would like to be in the capital so I suppose they would be the club (Fulham).

“And Queens Park Rangers, they have kept most of the squad that was in the Premier League, they have lost one or two but I would say they would be the two attractive ones.”

Whatever Evans thinks about his Championship rivals, it seems he could well be the man to inspire Leeds to start their climb up the table after a terrible start under former manager Uwe Rosler.

After two draws and a defeat in his first three matches, Evans has now guided Leeds to six points from their last two encounters and in a sense the international break came at the worst possible time for them.
