Carlton Palmer says Leeds should not have sacked this manager

Uwe Rosler

Leeds United sacked Uwe Rosler earlier in the campaign.

Carlton Palmer suggested on The Noel Whelan Show on BBC Radio Leeds on Friday evening (broadcast from 6pm, April 1) that Leeds United should have not sacked Uwe Rosler.

Rosler was appointed the Leeds head coach in the summer of 2015, but he was sacked in October.

“I thought they were wrong to get rid of Uwe Rosler and I was disappointed to read about him going and the way he went,” said former Leeds midfielder Palmer on The Noel Whelan Show on BBC Radio Leeds on Friday evening (broadcast from 6pm, April 1).

Rosler is a good manager, but he did not really do much at Leeds and failed to get enough positive results.

When the German was relieved of his duties at Elland Road, Leeds were 18th in the Championship table and were in real danger of getting dragged into the relegation fight.

The former Brentford and Wigan Athletic manager boss was in charge of just 12 matches during his time at Leeds, and he could win only two of them.

Perhaps Leeds owner Massimo Cellino should not have appointed Rosler in the first place.

Results under Steve Evans have been better than they were under the German, but Leeds are nowhere near a playoff spot and may have to settle for a place in the second half of the Championship table.
