Leeds United manager Steve Evans said he understood the frustration of his club’s fans but insisted he will turn things around if he is able to make signings when the transfer window reopens in January.

Evans was barracked by the travelling supporters at Loftus Road as the Whites went down 1-0 and they again chanted for owner Massimo Cellino, who was at the game, to sell up.

“It hurts, but they’re entitled not to pull any punches. We were disappointing in every aspect of the team,” Evans said.

“We can’t be waiting until the last 10 minutes to get the ball down and pass it and create chances. We’re a long way short of where we need to be.

“This is a famous football club that has had world-class stars. It’s a privilege to represent this club and we need to show work-rate and desire.

“I don’t think we have that many good players and we certainly don’t have many very good players at this level.

“But when I get tools in my toolbox I’ll be more than right to go to work. I’m convinced about that.

“When there’s freedom to sign players permanently I believe players will want to come to Leeds United.

“Liam Bridcutt turned down other clubs because he wanted to play for Leeds and others will feel the same.”
