Could Uwe Rosler bring Gunnar Halle back to Leeds United?

Former Leeds United midfielder Gunnar Halle worked with Uwe Rosler in Norway.

The imminent appointment of Uwe Rosler at Leeds United could lead to an unlikely return for a former White midfielder.

The Sun reported yesterday that Rosler is busy trying to sort out his potential backroom staff.

One of the more interesting options at his disposal is the temptation to link up again with Gunnar Halle.

Halle played for Leeds United in the late 1990s, signing from Oldham Athletic, and went on to make more than 80 appearances.

He was moved on in 1999 as Leeds pushed forward under David O'Leary, and retired in 2003.

Halle has since taken up a role in coaching, and has worked with Rosler on three previous occasions in Norway.

He was Rosler's assistant at Lillestrom, before they took up roles at Viking, and then later were reunited at Molde.

While former Manchester City striker Rosler has pursued a career in England subsequently, Halle has remained in Norway, currently a head coach in his own right at Strommen.

The temptation to link up with Rosler at his old club Leeds would however surely be of temptation if he receives a call from the German.
