Gunnar Halle comments on possible return to Leeds as Rosler's assistant

Norway Flag

Former Leeds defender Gunnar Halle says he doesn't have an offer to return to the club - yet.

Former Leeds defender Gunnar Halle told told TV2 in Norway that he doesn't have an offer from the club to become Uwe Rosler's new assistant.

Leeds confirmed the arrival of German boss Rosler as their new manager on Wednesday, with the ex-Wigan and Brentford manager signing a two-year contract at Elland Road.

Now, Rosler, 46, will be starting work ahead of the summer transfer window, but will also need to bring in staff around him before the start of next season.

The natural assumption is that Rosler will reunite with Halle, who was his assistant boss at both Lillestrom and Molde back in Norway.

Halle, 49, joined Leeds as a defender in 1996, playing 83 games for the club before leaving for Yorkshire rivals Bradford in 1999.

Given his experience with Rosler and his knowledge of Leeds United, Halle looks like being the ideal candidate to assist Rosler next season - but it's far from a done deal.

Halle is currently working with the Norway Under-16 side, and has told TV2 that, whilst he would be open to a move, he hasn't yet been asked to work with Rosler again.

"It would probably be fun to get an offer and try it out, but we will see what time brings," said Halle. "Now I have a job with the Football Association and I'm enjoying it," he added.
