Uwe Rosler has been appointed the Leeds United head coach on a two-year contract.
Newly-appointed Leeds United head coach Uwe Rosler has explained in today’s press conference his footballing style.
Rosler has succeeded Neil Redfearn at Elland Road and will be in charge of the Whites for the next two years.
The German was unveiled in a press conference earlier today in which he explained the football Leeds are going to play under him.
Rosler on his style of football: "It's German influenced - very quick into attack from defence. I like a high pressing game." #lufc— Leeds United FC (@LUFC) May 20, 2015
Rosler’s comments about his playing style should excite Leeds fans, as it means that they are going to watch some good football next season.
However, playing a high-pressing game for the entire season is not always possible. Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has a similar footballing philosophy, but they have struggled in the second half of the 2014-15 campaign.
The Championship is arguably tougher than the Premier League, and it will not be easy for the Whites to play a high-pressing game for 46 matches.
While it is great of Rosler to play a high-pressing attacking game, he will also have to adapt to the opposition and to the injuries he will have as the season progresses.
