Leeds United appoint Uwe Rosler on two-year deal

Leeds United have appointed Uwe Rosler as their new head coach on a two-year contract.

Rosler becomes the fifth head coach at Elland Road in just over 12 months, following in the wake of Brian McDermott, Dave Hockaday, Darko Milanic and most recently Neil Redfearn.

The German has been out of work since he was dismissed by Wigan Athletic last November after a poor start to the 2014-15 season.

Redfearn's future at the club came into question over the weekend when the former academy boss was branded 'weak' and a 'baby' by owner Massimo Cellino. He has been given the option to return to his academy role.

Rosler said: "My title is head coach and I will be responsible for the key members of staff around the first team, the group of players, the tactical approach, technical approach and I will have an impact on who is going in and who is going out.

"I tell my players you are only as good as your last game and obviously I have a point to prove here. Life is a challenge and I know what I am getting myself in.

"But I thrive on pressure and have thrived on challenges all my life and for me to be the head coach of Leeds United is a chance of a lifetime. 

"I am very happy. I have spent the last six months studying players. It doesn't get much bigger than this and it was a no-brainer for me to come here. I am aiming for the top 10 and I think that is an achievable target."
