Leeds United should forget David Moyes and focus on Steve Evans

The current Leeds United manager has done nothing to suggest he deserves the chop.

According to a recent report from the Mirror, David Moyes would be interested in taking over at Leeds United if the job was offered to him.

The former Everton and Manchester United manager is reportedly the top managerial target if Steve Parkin completes his mooted takeover of the club, but as things stand that would be the wrong appointment.

Moyes showed at Preston North End and then at Everton that he is a great manager, but Leeds do not need another change just for the sake of it.

If current boss Steve Evans was not doing well that is one thing, but the recently appointed manager has got Leeds’s squad playing for him – something not every boss has been able to say in their own ill-fated stays at Elland Road.

Back-to-back victories against Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town speak of a club going in the right direction – a side that is playing for Evans and who maintained their winning form in a specially arranged friendly against Wycombe Wanderers on Friday.

If Leeds make it three league wins on the bounce when they take on bottom club Rotherham United this weekend the Whites could climb as high as 11th in the Championship, potentially just six points outside the playoff places.

Yes Moyes would be a solid appointment but why change a winning formula?

Evans is proving his worth at Leeds right now, and for once stability and patience should be the order of the day.
