Ill Leeds United star Charlie Taylor has his say on new boss Steve Evans

The left-back is yet to play under the new manager after a bout of glandular fever.

Leeds United have seemingly improved under new boss Steve Evans. They suffered an embarrassing defeat against Blackburn Rovers at home but other than that they have performed well in all of their fixtures under the Scotsman's stewardship.

Their most recent results have been wins against Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town - two wins that also ended in clean sheets.

To think that Evans has done all this without the services of his first-choice left-back is also very impressive.

Charlie Taylor has been out of action in recent weeks with a bout of glandular fever. The illness has kept him out for six weeks and he is not expecting a return before facing Hull City in December.

The talented full-back has been speaking to BBC Radio Leeds about his illness this week and also discussed his new manager.

On Evans he stated:

"I think he's brought passion. He' got all the lads up. You can see in the last two games we've got a couple of good results and clean sheets and I think he's just got everyone pumped up and firing. i think the players are wanting to play for him and win.

"Yeah I think he's got his points across straight away and it is starting to pay off now. We are picking up some very good results and hopefully it can continue. Like I said the lads and everyone knows what they're doing now and everyone's one big team."

There certainly seems to be an aura of belief around the club with Evans in charge. Whilst the reign of Uwe Rosler was one of style over substance Evans is a man who clearly does not care of the image portrayed - he just wants results.

It's polarizing, but refreshing, and when Taylor returns he is likely to thrive under the new management.
