Fulham consider move for former Leeds boss Uwe Rosler

Uwe Rosler

HITC Sport understands former Leeds United boss Uwe Rosler is in the frame for the Fulham job.

Former Leeds United boss Uwe Rosler is a contender for the vacant manager's job at Fulham, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Fulham are searching for a new manager following the sacking of Kit Symons on Sunday, 24 hours after the heavy defeat at home to Birmingham City.

The Cottagers are currently lie in 12th spot in the Championship table, eight points off the play-off spots, but the club have decided to act after back-to-back defeats to Burnley and Birmingham.

A whole host of names have been linked with the role at Craven Cottage, but former Leeds, Wigan and Brentford boss Rosler is thought to figure prominently on the wanted list.

Rosler is currently out of work after being sacked by Leeds last month after just five months in charge at Elland Road.

The German was the fifth manager to be sacked by Leeds owner Massimo Cellino in less than two years despite starting the season six games unbeaten.

Rosler is highly-regarded in coaching circles having helped transform Brentford's fortunes and he also reached the FA Cup semi-finals and Championship play-off semi-finals with Wigan.

Fulham are hoping to have a new manager in charge by the end of the international break and Rosler is thought to have admirers within the Craven Cottage boardroom.
