Former Leeds United head coach Steve Evans has stressed the importance of the Yorkshire giants getting some managerial stability.

The Scot became Leeds owner Massimo Cellino’s sixth managerial victim at the end of last season when he was let go to pave the way for Garry Monk’s appointment in the summer.

Despite a flurry of summer signings, Leeds have been inconsistent under Monk in the first month of the season and Evans admits that the 37-year-old is already under the cosh at Elland Road.

While the former Leeds boss admits that the club need more investment into the squad, he also feels the Whites are in desperate need of some managerial stability as there have just been too many changes over the last couple of years.

Evans said on Sky Sports’ Goals On Sunday programme: “You look at Garry Monk; he is already under pressure in the first couple of days of September.  


“One thing that football club does need is investment and two is for the coach or the manager to get some time to build something.”

Cellino is known for his lack of patience with head coaches and there has been speculation that the Leeds owner has shown restlessness this season already in the face of the club’s inconsistencies.
