Uwe Rosler addresses Leeds United midfielder Casper Sloth's future

Leeds United's Casper Sloth has not made a first-team appearance since February.

Leeds United boss Uwe Rosler has told the Yorkshire Evening Post that he has the 'ultimate respect' for Casper Sloth.

Sloth has not played for Leeds since February, and he is yet to even be named on the substitutes' bench since Rosler took over at the start of the summer.

However, the German manager says that he still has a lot of admiration for Sloth's work-ethic, although he has suggested that he may not be rewarded for it at Elland Road. 

“I have the ultimate respect for Casper," he said. "He will get his reward. Will he get his reward with us or another club? I don’t know. But the way he behaves and works is exceptional. He’s a role model.”

Sloth actually made a decent first impression at Leeds, during his debut season, but as the campaign progressed he slipped out of contention. 

The Dane was overlooked by Neil Redfearn, and it seems that he has been unable force his way back into the team since - with Rosler favouring other options in his squad.

Sloth has had to make do with under-21 action so far this season, where he has generally impressed with his performances. 

The 23-year-old has suggested that playing for the development side will not be enough to keep him around though, and Bold.DK reported on his intentions to move elsewhere recently.
