The German has been discussing Leeds' team selection against Brighton.
Indeed, with Charlie Taylor out with a viral infection, Leeds went with Gaetano Berardi at left-back, putting Wotton at right-back instead of turning to Byram.
And Rosler says the selection was made due to how the Yorkshire side want to play and the defensive qualities the 24-year-old possesses.
Rosler told BBC Radio Leeds: "Yes. [Wootton was selected] because of his defensive qualities and because of the way we want to play now."
Leeds fans, of course, were very sceptical indeed over Wootton's selection ahead of Byram.
It's a messy situation but Leeds need to somehow get past all this and put some points on the board.
Next up is a trip to Craven Cottage to play Fulham on Wednesday night. Can Rosler's men finally get a result? Or is more misery in store for the Yorkshire side in the coming weeks?
