Former Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler has told Sky Sports he has no regrets about taking the Elland Road job. Rosler was hired last year by Massimo Cellino, but failed to make it past October before he was sacked by the Leeds United owner.
Speaking to Sky Sports, for their September 8th podcast, Rosler revealed he’d only have had regrets had he not taken the role. The German said he backed himself to be a success at Leeds United due to the work he’d done at previous clubs, and knew what lay ahead of him.
However, Rosler went on to say he only accepted the role because Cellino gave him realistic targets for that season, but this turned out not to be the case.
“I think I would have regret if I didn’t take the opportunity on. You back yourself, you’re confident, with what I did at Wigan in the beginning also at Brentford. I knew about the challenges, there’s no question about it, but I have to say I only joined Leeds because the president gave me realistic targets, and the target I was given from him was to stay in the league,” said Rosler on his time at Leeds United.
Rosler was installed as the Leeds United manager last summer, but only lasted a few months in the job. Under the 47-year-old Leeds United won just two games, and he was eventually replaced by Steve Evans.
