Uwe Rosler explains big issue Leeds have been facing this season

Rosler has admitted that Leeds United are plotting their own downfall this season.

Speaking to the official Leeds website, Uwe Rosler has admitted that his side are being caught on the counter too many times against opposition, which is costing them valuable points in the Championship.

Rosler said: “We’ve been caught on the counter too many times. You can see that we’ve had the ball a lot and we got drawn out of position. We have to find a way. The players have been looking for some answers and we’ve given them those answers.”

Leeds have been struggling in the Championship this season, winning just two games out of 10, and currently sitting in the lower half of the table.

There have been glimpses of classy football, and the style of play that Rosler wants to bring in, but it is clear that his players are still trying to adapt to how the head coach wants them to play.

The issue with this is that players can be caught out of position frequently, and Rosler has admitted that this lack of awareness from his players is behind his side being caught on the counter too often - placing the Whites under pressure.

They are the second highest dispossessed team in the division, whilst also having the highest number of unsuccessful touches, which is placing the players under increased pressure that should be avoidable.

This is all due to the learning process, and with more time the players will become more aware of how Rosler wants his team to play, and hopefully Leeds will start showing their true performance levels in the coming weeks.
