Uwe Rosler confirms no ‘revolution of players’ at Leeds United this summer

Rosler has admitted that Leeds United will not be having a mass clear out of players.

Speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Rosler has confirmed that Leeds will not be signing and selling players just for the sake of it.

He said: “I said when I came here that there wouldn’t be a revolution of players. We’re trying to bring in the right players for the right place in the right position. But I’m still assessing the squad.

“We don’t want to bring someone in for the sake of it when it turns out that we have good players here. Everybody has a chance to impress.”

This is the best approach to the summer transfer window that Rosler can take, having inherited a large squad with talent all the way through it.

There are players who have ability but failed to impress last season, whilst others who may have been outcast during the previous regime but are ready to impress this term - Nicky Ajose comes to mind.

Although stating there will be no ‘revolution of players’, Rosler has not shied away from bringing players in this summer. Chris Wood and Lee Erwin have been brought to Elland Road to provide attacking strength, but they were not purchases for the sake of it.

Scoring goals turned out to be a challenge for the White last term, and so Rosler’s first aim as head coach was to address the weak areas of his squad.

Likewise, Sol Bamba has been signed on a permanent deal as the Leeds defence looked far more assured when he was involved during his loan spell last term.

This is a logical move for the coach, and it is good to see he is only bringing players in who are needed to improve the side he inherited. Many new coaches needlessly sign players to place their mark on the squad, but Rosler has held back to place the players he already has at the forefront.

Leeds look to be making solid progress in this summer transfer window, and with Rosler assessing his squad in logical terms, it looks like it could be a promising season for the Yorkshire giants.
