Hibs' Stevenson thinks manager turnover is farcical

Hibs defender Lewis Stevenson has today described the number of managers passing through the revolving door at Easter Road as “farcical”.

The 22-year-old has now played under five managers in six seasons with the club, and has admitted the quick turnover has to stop.

Colin Calderwood took over the helm at Easter Road on Monday, and Stevenson, who was man of the match as an 18-year-old rookie at Hampden, as the Hibees lifted the Scottish League Cup in 2007, is hoping he is here for the long run.

Tony Mowbray, John Collins, Mixu Paatelainen and John Hughes are the other four who have managed the club while the Scotland U21 star broke through the youth system at the club, and he is now hoping for some stability, he said:

"I have been here five or six years and have had five managers,

"It's getting a bit farcical. I think the players have a bit of responsibility. Maybe we need to change the players rather than the manager. Maybe the change will bring me a bit of luck.

"I think the boys could see that none of them really performed at their best, and maybe we should take a look at ourselves as well."
