Leeds United fans turn on Uwe Rosler on Twitter following latest comments

Uwe Rolser recently stated that Leeds United are not aiming to be promoted this season.

A section of Leeds United supporters have started to turn on manager Uwe Rosler after he publicly admitted on BBC Sport that he had given up on promotion.

The Whites have made an inauspicious start to their Championship campaign, but Leeds fans are fuming at the lack of ambition that has been shown.

Rosler has suggested that a top-10 finish is all that he is aiming for this season, with attention focused on building towards a promotion push in the 2016/17 campaign.

Although that attitude may suggest that he is planning for the long-term, his willingness to give up on promotion so early into the season has been frustrating.

Leeds are still only seven points away from the play-off places, and with a good run of form, they have plenty of time in which to bridge that gap.

Indeed, Sky Sports pundit Andy Hinchcliffe tipped the side as outsiders for promotion, and there are supporters with high hopes for the campaign ahead.

Rosler, however, does not share that belief and Leeds fans have accused him of lacking ambition on social media site Twitter.
