Rosler explains what he doesn't want to make an issue at Leeds

Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler has explained that he doesn't want to make an issue out of the club's fixture list.

Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler told the Yorkshire Evening Post that he doesn’t want to make an issue out of the club’s fixture list.

Rosler has already been openly critical of the way fixtures have been planned in the Championship, despite the season only being a few games old.

Leeds saw a 2-0 lead slip away against Bristol City earlier this week, as the squad were forced to travel to the South West following a trip down to Reading last weekend.

“I say what I have to say and then you move on because the more you say about it the more you make it an issue. I don’t want to make it an issue,” he told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“It has to be said I don’t think it helps in any way so we mention it and then we move on. That’s it.”

The best approach for Rosler

The best approach for the boss is to simply rotate where possible to keep his key players fit and as a fresh as possible.

It’s impossible for him to play his first choice side in every game because of the strain the players are placed under.

Therefore, he needs to master the art of rotation early into the campaign to prevent fatigue from becoming a problem and to prevent mistakes from being made, as was the case late into the game against Bristol City.

There’s still plenty for the club to be positive about and hopefully Rosler’s message over fixtures will be listened to and Leeds can look forward to that first win.
