Uwe Rosler admits he will not change formation, despite Leeds’ poor form

There have been calls for Leeds United to change formation after their poor start to the season.

Speaking on Leeds United’s official AudioBoom channel, Uwe Rosler has admitted that he will not change formation or system in the coming weeks, despite the fact that the Whites have been struggling for form in the Championship.

When asked whether he will consider changing how his team plays, Rosler said: “No, I think the style of play will not change, we need the high energy team.”

This is a worrying admission for Rosler to make, considering how poorly his side have been playing in the Championship this season.

In 10 games the Whites have picked up just two wins, and have not yet won at home.

It is this Elland Road statistic which has fans most worked up, with Rosler setting his side up in a fairly reserved manner, and not really going out to dominate opposition teams - despite being the home side.

There have been calls for Rosler to change his system, from the 4-3-3 he has been using to a more traditional 4-4-2, playing with attacking wingers and a strike partnership.

This seems to suit the players at his disposal better, with the likes of Jordan Botaka, Will Buckley and Stuart Dallas all classic style wingers, whilst a partnership of Chris Wood and Mirco Antenucci would possess an all-round skill set to beat out many defences.

However, Rosler has admitted he has no desire to change his set-up any time soon, and will continue to utilise his current system until results start to improve.

One just hopes that happens soon...
