Steve Evans has admitted he will be reduced to tears if he is sacked at Leeds by Massimo Cellino.
The 53-year-old has been under immense pressure regarding his position as Leeds manager despite the club avoiding relegation from the Championship and taking 10 points from their last four matches.
Despite the run Leeds remain 12th in the table and, after the 2-2 draw at Hull on Saturday, Evans revealed he would be shattered to be relieved of his duties come the end of the season.
“I don’t think annoyance will come into it,” said Evans when asked if he would be annoyed to be shown the door, speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post. “Shedding tears would, disappointment would.
“This is a special club and I love being a part of it. You are very lucky to be associated with it.
“I won’t have to chase the president – we have a good relationship, we have a difference of opinion which is normal. I have made it clear I want to be here but I won’t stay not wanted. You have to be wanted.”
Evans has been on the end of several dressing downs by Cellino in recent months with the Italian owner accusing him of talking too much to the media and claiming he finds it impossible to work with English managers.
Cellino’s decision to often go public with his frustration has sparked endless speculation that the Leeds owner is just biding his time before firing his manager.
