Neil Warnock suggests the main challenge facing Uwe Rosler at Leeds

Former Leeds United boss Neil Warnock has suggested what will be a real challenge for current boss Uwe Rosler.

Former Leeds United manager Neil Warnock told talkSPORT what he feels will be the main challenge facing Uwe Rosler at the club.

Rosler was announced as head coach last week and Warnock has suggested it could be a problem for the German, if he doesn’t have a clear picture from the club’s owner and chairman Massimo Cellino on a weekly basis.

However, Warnock has suggested that hopefully Rosler will be the man Cellino gives a long term chance to at Elland Road.

“I think that’s a sensible appointment really – I’m glad Uwe has got the job but it’s difficult because he’s very fiery is Cellino and you just don’t know from one week to the next but I think he will give it two years and he’ll try – They just need some stability,” he said.

It’s a sensible appointment because Rosler is a coach who understands the Championship and what is needed for a team to competitive in the second tier of English football.

It’s also a sensible appointment because Rosler is the sort of individual who doesn’t suffer fools gladly and he will adopt a firm but fair approach to the way he manages the side.

Whether Cellino will reel in his flamboyant and sometimes controversial approach to controlling the club is more doubtful.

Rosler is already under pressure to hit the ground running next season because he’s replacing a man in Neil Redfearn who did a lot of good work before finding out that he wouldn’t be kept in his position.

The real test is going to be how Cellino and the team reacts when a couple of bad results are produced.
