New Leeds United boss Uwe Rosler wants top-10 finish

20 May 2015

New Leeds United boss Uwe Rosler is targeting a top-10 finish in his first season in charge at Elland Road.

Rosler has penned a two-year deal at Leeds and he believes that he will be able to drive the club up the Sky Bet Championship table.

"I am driving and aiming for the top 10, I think that is an achievable target,” he said.

"It doesn't get much bigger than this, it was a no-brainer [to accept the job].”

Rosler takes over from Neil Redfearn at Leeds after they finished 15th in the Sky Bet Championship in 2014/15, and the German manager has some strong foundations to build upon.

The Whites entrusted their brightest academy prospects to perform key functions this season and they were rewarded for their faith.

The likes of Sam Byram, Lewis Cook, Charlie Taylor and Alex Mowatt all performed admirably over the course of the campaign, and it provides Rosler with a talented unit to formulate his plans around.

“We have a core of players with their best years in front of them,” he said. “It's a very exciting time.

“It's a great football club with great potential. All of us together can make this a force.”
