Uwe Rosler: At every club I've managed, this has happened

Leeds United Crest

Leeds United head coach Uwe Rosler definitely feels he will improve the Elland Road club.

Leeds United head coach Uwe Rosler told LUTV that he feels he’s improved every club that he’s even been at.

He’s also explained that his initial intention at Elland Road is to improve the club’s results at the start of the new season, to get Leeds into a position where they can establish themselves in the Championship’s top half quickly.

“Every club I’ve taken over has improved including Brentford and Wigan immediately with their results and that’s what I intend to do here,” he said.

“I started at Brentford with the club mid-table and look where they are today – I’m very proud of what I achieved in the first seven months (at Wigan) – I also learnt and experienced the dark side – we had problems and I expected to have more time to sort them out.”

Rosler certainly has confidence in his own ability and that is something that Leeds perhaps need in their leader next season.

However, whether he gets the time he craves to correct mistakes and errors at Leeds is doubtful.

He clearly feels aggrieved by the way things ended when he was at Wigan but Leeds are a bigger club and Massimo Cellino is not an owner where patience seems to be a trait.

Since the Italian took over, the club have had four different first team managers including Rosler. If he doesn’t like the way things are panning out, he pulls the trigger.

Rosler can’t be judged until Leeds start playing competitive games and fans can see the sort of style they’ll have to get used to under his guidance.

It’s encouraging that he has a determination to do well but he may be kidding himself if he feels that Cellino will be patient when he asks for time to sort out any mistakes or bad patches of form.
