It would appear that Peterborough United may have just found their new manager.
He comes in the shape of former Boston United, Crawley Town and Rotherham United manager Steve Evans. He has also taken charge of Leeds United before joining Mansfield Town part way through last season.
Evans, who is considered to be the favourite to become the next POSH manager, dramatically quit his current job at League Two promotion pushers Mansfield tonight (February 27), and was even spotted watching from the directors box at his prospective new side’s fixture with Walsall at the ABAX Stadium.
He has been backed constantly by punters to take over The POSH after the news of Grant McCann’s sacking on Sunday night.
Since announcing his resignation, along with his assistant Paul Raynor, Evans has been quoted at 1/12 to become the next POSH manager according to SkyBet.
If the rumours are true, it would fulfil a lifelong dream of a man who has supported The POSH since moving to the area 30 years ago, although the club are yet to comment on the possibility of Evans taking charge.
