Horton suggests why Rosler is facing a difficult challenge this season

Leeds United goalkeeper Charlie Horton has suggested that his manager Uwe Rosler is already under pressure at the club.

Leeds United goalkeeper Charlie Horton told Radio Yorkshire that he’s been impressed by the way manager Uwe Rosler has approached the task of trying to move the club forward.

The American shot stopper has suggested that Rosler came into a situation where he had his work cut out because of where the club finished under Neil Redfearn last season.

However, Horton has explained that the mood in the camp is a positive one as the club looks to progress and benefit from the training methods Rosler has implemented from his first day in charge at Elland Road.

“I think he’s come in with a tough task because of where we finished last year and the expectation for us to do better. I really like his mentality and the way he goes about training every single day and I think I speak for the whole team, not just me, in that we’re really enjoying working for him,” he told Radio Yorkshire.

What would mark a real improvement for Leeds?

Leeds are in a position where they finished last season in the lower half of the table, comfortably above the bottom three and faced with the task of really pushing on this year.

Rosler needs to find ways of working on the weaknesses of his team, utilising the new signings to have come in and improving the belief of the side over the coming months.

The aim will be to quickly get into the top half of the table, which will hopefully have created a confidence within the players that they can do well.

Continuity from Rosler

Rosler also needs to show continuity in terms of his training methods and making Thorpe Arch an enjoyable place for the players to be on a daily basis.

Any individual in any job is always going to be much more productive when they feel comfortable and free of any pressure.
