Newly-appointed Leeds United head coach Uwe Rosler has been quoted as saying by the club’s official Twitter page that he wants to lead the team to a top-10 finish in the Championship next season.
Leeds finished 15th in the 2014-15 Championship campaign with 56 points from 46 matches after flirting with relegation for a while.
Rosler has stated that he is determined to improve on that finish in his first season in charge of the Whites.
Rosler on his hopes for the season ahead: "I am driving and aiming for the top 10, I think that is an achievable target." #lufc— Leeds United FC (@LUFC) May 20, 2015
The target for Leeds has always been to get promoted to the Premier League, and perhaps Rosler should aim for more than a top-10 finish.
The Whites may not have the squad to finish in the playoffs at the moment, but if they make some good signings in the summer transfer window, then they should at least be able to compete.
Perhaps Rosler does not want to increase pressure on himself by making bold comments right now, or maybe he does not want to give false hope to the fans.
A top-10 finish in the Championship would be an improvement on this season, but for a club of the size and stature of Leeds, they need to aim higher.
