Evans said the Frenchman's input since his arrival at the club last summer had been valuable - while suggesting he understood accusations of a breakdown between Leicester's fans and the manager.
He said: "Everyone's got different personalities, I tried to view him as a coach and what I could learn from him. I learned things from him, I only spent a short time with him, six months, and I was working my way back into the team in the last month or so.
"He's obviously a well-respected coach throughout Europe and especially in France, where he's got a great reputation. He's got great qualities, and as players you try to take as much from him as you can.
"There does have to be that connection between supporters, players, manager and the hierarchy itself and maybe the club felt like it wasn't going in that direction."
