Uwe Rosler: Leeds need to learn from Brentford and Bournemouth

Leeds United appointed Uwe Rosler as their new manager yesterday.

Uwe Rosler has told Leeds United's official website that he wants to help the side emulate Bournemouth and Brentford.

Rosler was handed a two-year deal at Elland Road on Wednesday and he has lofty ambitions for the club.

Although he is not planning on spending big, he wants to buy wisely this summer to add the quality that the Whites need - and he feels that Brentford and Bournemouth are the perfect examples for them to follow.

"I think you can achieve a lot with hard work and being clever in the transfer market," he explained. "You don’t need the biggest budget. Obviously money helps, but it is not the solution for winning automatic promotion. I think we should look at a club like Bournemouth or what I did at Brentford with far less budgets than some of the big guns."

Leeds are likely to make a number of additions to their squad this summer, as they look to strengthen their team.

The Whites only claimed a 15th placed finish this season so they will have to improve considerably if they are to match the achievements of Bournemouth or Brentford.

The Cherries were the Championship's standout side this season, winning the league, while Brentford made it into the play-offs.

They both pieced together hugely impressive campaigns and if Rosler is able to help Leeds mimic their achievements, then he will be a very popular figure at Elland Road.
