Rosler explains he's happy as long as Leeds are creating chances

Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler is pleased with the number of chances his team are creating in games.

Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler told Radio Yorkshire that as long as his side are creating chances, he will be a happy coach.

Leeds are still searching for their first win under Rosler’s guidance this season, with three draws from the club’s first three games.

The resilience and determination to avoid defeat is impressive but Rosler has dismissed an accusation that his team are guilty of wasting chances.

“I think we’ve had different games – We’ve stood high up and force chances, yeah we’ve not used them and converted them but as long as we’re getting chances I’m happy,” he told Radio Yorkshire.

“I think my young players, they’re doing what I’m asking them to get results – We will play a high pressing game, high up the pitch and we will create chances.”

Patience is the key

Leeds are playing an attacking and aggressive brand of football at the moment with maybe one or two cracks through their defence.

They have scored and conceded three goals in their first three games and look useful going forward, while the understanding between players across the back four will improve.

Rosler, the fans and most importantly, Massimo Cellino, all need to be patient because the results will come with the impressive ethos that the manager has branded into his players.

Leeds get the home advantage back this weekend when they take on Sheffield Wednesday on a Yorkshire derby and there’s no reason why they can’t kick-start their season with an impressive win in that game.
