Leeds United boss Uwe Rosler highlights historical advantage he gives his teams

The German says his teams always come good toward the end of the season.

Leeds United go into the new season full of hope after some top signings and a relatively calm summer.

They have brought in a new management set-up, both for the team and behind the scenes. On top of that they have snapped up some popular signings with the likes of Chris Wood, Stuart Dallas and the permanent deal for Sol Bamba.

New Leeds boss Uwe Rosler has now highlighted a historical strength of his management that should pay dividends for Leeds United this season.

Speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post he has been speaking about the benefits of the tough pre-season regime he puts his teams through – and how come May, that’ll make Leeds stronger.

He stated:

“We need some sort of realistic expectation but also a level of consistency which means that in the end – and this is always important – when we get to May we are there. My teams historically come strong in the second half of the season because they are very fit. You can go back to Brentford and Wigan in 2013-14 – always coming strong in the end.”

Leeds have been praised for their pre-season this summer, as the entire team has been worked hard to be at the fitness levels Rosler desires.

He is right about the 2013-14 campaign. He led Wigan Athletic to an FA Cup semi-final and Championship play-off semi-final that term. He started the season in charge of Brentford, who went on to finish second in League One and earn promotion to the Championship.

A similar season from Leeds and the Elland Road faithful will certainly be pleased.
