Former Leeds United head coach Uwe Rosler recently found himself a new job.

Over the weekend the German was appointed the new manager of League One side Fleetwood Town – taking over from Steven Pressley.

The German will be hoping to have a better time at Highbury Stadium than he did at Elland Road.

Rosler managed just 12 games at Leeds, winning two of them, before being sacked by Massimo Cellino and replaced by Steve Evans.

Prior to that he has found success at Brentford and in his first season with Wigan Athletic.

Speaking to the press this week, as quoted by the Blackpool Gazette, he seems to be making it clear that his time at Leeds does not represent a fair crack:

“When I have had time to put my stamp on clubs you could see the outcome.

“I’m not mentioning the 11 (sic 12) games I had at my previous club (Leeds) that was a very short time but I think over time you will see a side that will have a lot of energy, that is willing to attack in numbers, that is willing to press high and fill the box.”

Rosler did struggle to impress his ideas onto the Leeds side during his brief spell in charge but, if given more time, perhaps he might have had success at the club.

As it is he is clearly hoping that his experience at Leeds does not count against him too much.

At least he has a chance for quick revenge as the two teams face off in the Capital One Cup next week.
