Uwe Rosler has told The Telegraph & Argus that he is disappointed that he was not given more time at Leeds United.

Rosler was sacked as the Leeds head coach in October following a run of poor results in the Championship which left them 18th in the table.

The former Manchester City and Southampton forward was in charge of the West Yorkshire outfit for just 12 games before he was given the boot.

Rosler has said that he could have done more had he been given more time at Elland Road.

The former Brentford and Wigan Athletic boss has also revealed that he has spoken to the owners of League One club Bradford City.

“I enjoyed my time at Leeds but unfortunately I didn’t get the chance to show what I can do,” Rosler told The Telegraph & Argus. “For me, it was experience and can only make me better."

“I still consider myself a young manager and I definitely want to come back into management," added Rosler. "But when and where it will be, I cannot tell you.

"Obviously I know Phil Parkinson very well and we get on very well. I have big respect for him as a person. Phil did a great job at Bradford and he has now gone.

"Yes, I know the owners but it’s not as straight forward as everybody thinks. I’ve only spoken to them since Phil got permission to talk to Bolton.”

Rosler is a good manager, but under him, the Whites did not fare well and the results were disappointing.

The performances of the team were also quite disappointing under the German, who was succeeded at Elland Road by Steve Evans.

Evans is now gone and has been replaced as the Leeds head coach by former Swansea City manager Garry Monk.

Maybe Monk will be able to guide the Whites to a top-six finish in the Championship next season...
