Simon Grayson: This is what Rosler will do to Leeds United

Former Leeds United manager Simon Grayson feels his old team have the right man to take the club forward.

Former Leeds United manager Simon Grayson told Radio Yorkshire what he feels Leeds fans will want to see from Uwe Rosler and the side next season.

The ex-Leeds boss holds no doubt that Rosler is the right man to take the Elland Road side forward under Massimo Cellino, predicting what sort of side he thinks the German will create at the Yorkshire club.

“I know Uwe well, he’s a good football man and he’s going into Leeds to see if he can get things going again – Uwe will have them disciplined, he’ll have them working hard and all the fans want to see is the players playing for the shirt,” he said.

“They’ve got a good man and hopefully Leeds United can get back to where they deserve to be.”

It’s important that Leeds have a strong unity and team spirit running through the side, because last season showed how competitive and how difficult the Championship is.

A number of sides could easily have been promoted based on the last campaign and there are going to be some very big clubs aiming for the top six when the competitive league action returns this August.

Leeds have one of the most passionate sets of fans in the country and that loyalty has been valuable in the face of adversity in the recent past.

If the supporters see a Leeds United side they can be proud of next season, that support will go through the roof creating difficult conditions for any opposition at Elland Road while inspiring the team away from home.

The supporters are also going to be very important in terms of helping Rosler settle into life at the club as he looks to get Leeds back to where they belong.
