Rosler optimistic ahead of important season for Leeds United

Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler is confident his team can progress from the last two years.

Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler told talkSPORT that he feels the club can look forward without any more ‘dead bodies’ lingering in the closet.

The German coach was in optimistic mood ahead of the new season when he spoke to the radio station, suggesting that he feels a top ten finish would be a good achievement for the club, based on their last two seasons.

He also suggested that there is an underlying hunger and desire in the current squad, for progression and success over the coming months considering the adversity the club has gone through in the recent past.

“I think we have to see where Leeds United are coming from over the last couple of years. I think we’re coming from two positions around number 15 in the league and I think we have financial limitations,” he told talkSPORT.

“I think now we can look forward with no more dead bodies in the closet – We have a young, hungry and talented squad and we want to progress – For me personally, top ten would be good.”

Is Rosler’s aim realistic?

There’s no reason why Leeds can’t achieve a top ten finish in the Championship over the course of the next year.

The club have managed to keep their talented youngsters in place and the boss has also brought in some good quality players, who improve his options in different areas.

That gives Rosler different options in terms of the periods where injuries and suspensions accumulate, which in turn helps the club’s chances of consistency.

Leeds will always be supported well at home and away, with that volume of following likely to inspire the players to push on, ensuring that there’s no repeat of the struggles which have been endured over the last couple of years.
