Official: Leeds sack Uwe Rosler; Steve Evans reportedly replaces him

Uwe Rosler

Leeds United will have a new man in charge of the first team.

Leeds United have sacked Uwe Rosler as their head coach.

The West Yorkshire have announced the dismissal of the German on their official Twitter page, but they have not confirmed who is going to replace him.

Rosler was appointed the Leeds head coach at the end of last season, but a poor run of results this campaign has seen him lose his job at Elland Road.

The Whites are 18th in the Championship table at the moment with just 11 points from as many matches.

The West Yorkshire outfit are only three points above the relegation zone, and it seems that Leeds chairman Massimo Cellino has lost his faith in Rosler.

Former Rotherham United manager Evans has been put in charge of the Leeds first team for the time being, according to ESPN.

The 52-year-old had been without a managerial job since the end of last season when he left Rotherham.

Leeds are back in action on Wednesday when they take on Fulham away from home at Craven Cottage in the Championship.
