Steve Evans is on the verge of being sacked by Leeds – and the Scotsman should not look to Twitter for sympathy.
Football Insider reported on Tuesday evening that a replacement has already been lined up after a player mutiny at Leeds over the weekend.
Owner Massimo Cellino does not feel like he can trust the Scotsman and has been urged by the players to sack Evans as soon as possible.
The news broke on early Tuesday evening and Leeds fans erupted into a frenzy as they contemplate the decision and the future of their club.
A player revolt at Leeds. All seems justified. The one at Boro actually got some publicity. Evans is bargain basement. Get in the sea #lufc

If you're happy to settle for Steve Evans being the manager of Leeds United you're part of the problem.

Blimey, Leeds have taken their home humiliation at the weekend badly, haven't they? Evans looks as if he's about to lose his job!

I know thousands don't like him but I enjoy Steve Evans at Leeds
I think he's got more out of some players than other managers did

So early reports are stating Cellino is set to get rid of Evans and bring in foreign management. How is our club meant to survive? #Leeds

Steve Evans today refused to comment on Steve Evans' future at Leeds United, saying only: "Steve Evans, Steve Evans, Steve Evans." #lufc

Evans is expected to be shown the door before the end of season , but some Leeds supporters are beginning to spot a slight pattern in Cellino’s ownership.
The Italian is about to axe his sixth manager since taking over in 2014 and his third in less than a year.
Leeds about to sack Steve Evans then ????????????

Hardly a surprise to Leeds fans that Evans will get sacked at the end of the season ? We've been here last year with Redders too #lufc

If Evans goes only one thing is certain; the next one won't be anyone we want.
Hock, Milan, Rosler and Evans himself prove that.#lufc

In other Leeds news, Cellino was convinced to take a decision on Evans’ future by his own players.
