Uwe Rosler hails Leeds United's goalkeeping coach Richard Hartis

The Leeds United boss is clearly happy with one of the club's new coaching additions in particular.

Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler has been speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post about his new goalkeeping coach Richard Hartis.

The 47-year-old was working for England’s under-18s this summer having previously enjoyed roles at Manchester United, Molde and Cardiff City, and Rosler is clearly happy with his appointment.

“I am very happy with Richard Hartis,” Rosler told the YEP. “I knew him at Manchester United and he has great knowledge on the training pitch, but also understands how to create that winning environment…I am delighted to have him here.”

It has been a summer of change at Leeds, with both new players and new backroom staff following Rosler through the door, and the trick is to quickly ensure everyone hits the ground running an inspires the club to great things on the pitch.

Leeds endured a turbulent campaign last season, seeing three different managers take the role at various points – none of whom are in charge today – so the first trick is ensuring stability.

Rosler and Leeds owner Massimo Cellino have also impressed with their summer signings to date, bringing in a mix of youth and experience, signing players who should all play a significant role either now or, in the case of Charlie Horton, in the future.

He and fellow goalkeeper Marco Silvestri are set to benefit from the wisdom of Hartis, and Rosler clearly thinks he is the right man for that particular job.
