Rosler explains where Leeds remind him of old side Brentford

Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler has praised a specific element of his side.

Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler told Radio Yorkshire where he feels his current side remind him of old team Brentford.

Rosler did a lot of good work during his time with the Bees as they progressed up the Football League to their current position in the Championship.

His Brentford side were well known for their gritty and determined edge, which helped them through some difficult matches and Rosler has revealed that he’s seen something similar in his current squad at Elland Road.

“Their character has been tested but from what I’ve seen so far, they remind me of my team at Brentford; the strength of character is just massive,” he told Radio Yorkshire.

Some positive signs for Leeds

While it’s too early to judge Leeds and regardless of the fact they haven’t won a competitive game under Rosler yet, there are some positives to draw on.

The team look to be very difficult to play against at the moment and very difficult to beat, which flows from the character in the side.

They have also endured a small period unbeaten without arguably their best player in the form of Lewis Cook, who has only just returned to first team action.

Leeds aren’t always going to spring through the season playing a pure brand of football and if they can ensure that they’re picking up points through those difficult periods, they won’t be too far off the pace in terms of the top six by the end of the campaign.
