Leeds manager Uwe Rosler talks about Hoffenheim friendly and minor injuries

The Leeds United boss has been speaking ahead of their latest fixture.

Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler has been speaking to the club’s official website about their upcoming pre-season friendly against Hoffenheim.

Leeds have had a mixed summer to date, with their last outing ending in a 2-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt, and Rosler will be hoping for a more positive result as they approach what will be a vital Championship campaign.

Leeds have strengthened in such a way as to be regarded as realistic promotion contenders but they will have to hit the ground running for that to happen, and this friendly is another key factor in that preparation.

Speaking to leedsunited.com, Rosler said, “Physically we are ready; hopefully we can push mentally one more time before we head home.”

In terms of injuries, Rosler had relatively positive news on that front, adding, “We have bits and pieces. Playing games now, there is always impact and bruises, but no soft tissue injuries which is the most important thing at this time of the year.”

After today’s match Leeds have one more friendly before they kick off their league campaign against Burnley, with a match against Everton next Saturday proving to be Rosler’s last chance to assess his players before things get serious.
