Leeds United name Uwe Rosler as their new head coach

Uwe RoslerLeeds United have revealed the appointment of Uwe Rosler as their new head coach. On Tuesday the German emerged as the red hot favourite in the betting, and has now been named as the club's fifth boss of the turbulent Massimo Cellino era, after signing a two-year contract at Elland Road.

  • Rosler has previously managed Wigan, Brentford, Molde, Viking and Lillestrom
  • During his playing career the German striker played for the likes of Man City, Southampton and West Brom.

Neil Redfearn was overlooked by Cellino, who savagely labelled the, now former, Whites boss a "baby" and "weak", in a bizarre rant. The 49-year-old had been in charge of the club since October following the ill-fated brief tenure of Darko Milanic, and proceeded to steady the ship and steer the Yorkshire club clear of the relegation zone, up to 15th. However, despite being a popular figure with many fans, Redfearn was not offered a new deal at Elland Road, and is now likely to continue his managerial career elsewhere.

Meanwhile, new gaffer Rosler will be looking to turn the club's fortunes around, and challenge for a play-off spot next term. The German led former club Wigan to a top-6 finish last season, but they were ousted in the semi-final stage by QPR, while he also took them through to the semi-finals of the FA Cup, where they came agonisingly close to stunning Arsenal. The 46-year-old has also previously managed the likes of Brentford, along with the Norwegian trio of Molde, Viking, Lillestrom.
