Rosler explains why Leeds' last match can be considered special

Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler is pleased to see the international break.

Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler told Radio Yorkshire why he feels he can call the club’s first win in the Championship under him ‘special’.

Leeds secured a 2-1 win in their last game against Derby thanks to goals from Tom Adeyemi and Chris Wood, with Rosler reiterating his recent criticism of the Football League with regards to fixture scheduling.

Leeds now have a break because of the international games, which will allow them to regroup, rest and then go hard all over again when the domestic action returns.

“I can say it’s special because it’s the end of our gruelling schedule. I absolutely disagree with what the Football League put to us, it’s not fair for the competition – to get it right at the end, that feels very special,” he told Radio Yorkshire.

International break at the wrong time?

Some fans may feel as though the international break has come at the wrong time because it’s arguably always good to have another game as soon as possible after a win.

However, Rosler’s criticism of the fixture list suggests that he’ll be grateful for a break which will allow him to have a rest mentally, as well as any players being able to nurse any knocks they may be suffering.

Leeds do have some international representation over the next fortnight, but it’s always better, regardless of when, to go into the next game off the back of a win.

Next up for Rosler and Leeds is a match against Brentford on September 12, a game where the German will definitely want to make a point.
