Uwe Rosler not looking for revenge against Leeds United

The German spent 12 games in charge of Leeds United last year.

Leeds United take on Fleetwood Town tomorrow evening in the EFL Cup and go into the game off the back of an awful performance in their opening game of the Championship campaign.

Leeds were defeated 3-0 by QPR at Loftus Road and will need to show a markedly improved performance against the League One side.

Of course it is a game that also pitches the club against a former Leeds manager.

Uwe Rosler only managed 12 games as Leeds boss last season before getting the boot from Massimo Cellino. He was appointed the new boss of the Cod Army recently and will now get a chance of revenge over the Yorkshire side.

However, Rosler has told the Blackpool Gazette that he is treating the Leeds game as any other fixture:

“I address the Leeds game as a normal game for me.

“I will probably bring in a few players and make a few changes, so everybody can show me in the first two weeks what they are all about, then we see what we have to do while the transfer window is open.”

The German is clearly trying to keep emotion to a minimum in the fixture this week. He also confirmed he will be rotating his squad for the game – so is not exactly going out for vengeance.

But there is little doubt that Rosler would thoroughly enjoy getting one over on Leeds tomorrow evening.
