Report: Uwe Rosler to be offered Bradford City job this week

Bradford City stadium

Rosler spent five months in charge of Leeds United.

Bradford City's new owners want former Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler to replace Phil Parkinson at Valley Parade, according to a report in Monday's Sun newspaper (page 50).

Parkinson, under whom the Bantams were promoted from League Two and reached the League Cup final in 2013, led the West Yorkshire side to the League One play-offs this season.

But having lost to Millwall in the semi-finals, Bradford's new owners, Edin Rahic and Stefan Rupp, are said to have eyes on their own man ahead of the new campaign.

And the Sun reports that Rosler, the German pair's fellow countryman, will be offered the job this week.

Rosler previously led Brentford to the League One play-offs, but left the following autumn after an approach from Wigan Athletic.

The 47-year-old was then dumped out of the Championship play-offs at the end of the 2013-14 campaign, and was sacked six months later after the Latics dropped into the bottom three.

He was appointed Leeds United manager a year ago, but was replaced by Steve Evans in October having won just two of his 12 league games in charge.
