Uwe Rosler’s cheeky response to question about job security

Will Uwe Rosler last the entire season as Leeds United head coach?

Uwe Rosler has responded on Sky Sports to suggestions that many people advised him against taking the Leeds United job.

The 46-year-old German was appointed the Leeds head coach in May, having then been without a managerial job since his departure from Wigan Athletic in 2014.

Working with Leeds chairman Massimo Cellino is not easy, especially as the Italian entrepreneur is known to be impatient with his managers if things start to go wrong.

Many observers will think that Rosler will be given the boot if results do not pick up soon, but the former Brentford boss does not seem to be too bothered about his future.

“I can tell you that a lot of people are jealous that I took that job,” Rosler told Sky Sports when asked if people told him that he was crazy to take the Leeds position, and if he is worried that he won't be given enough time at Elland Road.

Rosler made the comment on Sky Sports 1 in the build-up to Leeds’ Championship game against Sheffield Wednesday at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.

The Whites failed to win yet again, as they played out a 1-1 draw with the Owls. Marco Matias gave Wednesday the lead in the 37th minute, and Chris Wood restored parity for Leeds just past the hour mark.
