LEEDS UNITED APPOINT STEVE EVANS AS HEAD COACH

Leeds United have announced the appointment of Steve Evans as Head Coach.

Steve makes a quick return to management having only left his previous club, Rotherham, towards the end of September 2015. He will be assisted in the dugout by former Swansea City midfielder Paul Raynor, who he has coached alongside throughout his managerial career.

On his appointment Steve said: "I’m honoured and proud, but the supporters just want to see what happens on the pitch,"

“The first thing we need to do is win some points and win some football matches. 

“We’ve got two tough games in the next six days. I know it’s seven months since we won at home and that is something we need to get off our back. 

“But, more importantly, we’ve now got two away games and that is important in isolation. The first thing that matters is at Fulham."

Steve has managed at Stamford, Boston United, Crawley Town and Rotherham United, where he achieved promotion with each of his previous clubs.
