The verdict is in on Uwe Rosler at Leeds United already from the bookies

Bookmakers offer short odds on Uwe Rosler failing at Leeds United.

Uwe Rosler was appointed as Leeds United boss on Wednesday, but short odds are being offered on an early sacking.

The former Manchester City striker is the fifth coach to work under Massimo Cellino, and the fourth he has appointed, with the temperamental Italian showing no signs of abandoning his hire-and-fire methods from his Cagliari days.

That makes Rosler seeing out his two-year deal a tough one to envision, and the smart betting is on him failing to last the season.

Betfair told HITC that Rosler is 1/2 on to leave Leeds United before the season is over.

He is 6/4 to last the season, but as for what success he will have, the bookmakers have made their minds up.

They make Leeds United fourth favourites to be relegated at 10/3, with only Charlton, Rotherham and MK Dons regarded as more likely.

By the same token odds on promotion are lengthy, with Leeds at 25/1 to go up. If fans are feeling optimistic then now is the time to place their bets.

PaddyPower offer even more colour to the betting market, making Rosler just 5/6 to be Leeds head coach when the 2016/17 season begins.

They also make him 5/2 to leave Leeds before New Year's Day 2016.

If he is to be successful, then clearly Uwe Rosler is going to have to prove a lot of people wrong.
