Gary Lineker reacts to Uwe Rosler sacking, criticises Massimo Cellino’s ownership

Uwe Rosler was sacked by Leeds United chairman Massimo Cellino.

Uwe Rosler was sacked by Leeds United on Monday morning, and Gary Lineker has reacted to the news on his official Twitter account.

The former Leicester, Everton and Tottenham striker has criticised club owner and chairman Massimo Cellino for his hire and fire policy, which has seen five managers arrive at Elland Road and be sacked in just over one full season.

Brian McDermott, Dave Hockaday, Darko Milanic, Neil Redfearn and now Rosler have all spent time in charge of the Whites under Cellino, and it does not look good for whoever is named next head coach.

Steve Evans looks to be that man, but considering Cellino’s recent record, how long can he honestly stay in the Leeds job for? Until Christmas? Through to the early months of next year?

There is something fundamentally wrong at Elland Road right now, and Cellino is not helping the situation by chopping and changing the running of the club far too quickly.

There is no consistency to be found, and Rosler only managed to last 11 games in charge of the Whites.

The hire and fire policy is not one that any fan wants to see running at their club, but Leeds fans will have to put up with it for the foreseeable future, as Cellino and his trigger finger remain in total control at Elland Road.
