Leeds United part company with Uwe Rosler

19 October 2015

Leeds United have parted company with head coach Uwe Rosler after only 12 games in charge.

Rosler, 46, took over at Elland Road in May, replacing Neil Redfearn, but they sit 18th in the Sky Bet Championship after Saturday's defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion, with the former Brentford manager tasting success just twice.

The 2-1 weekend loss means they are still in search of a first home victory of the season, and are now in search of their sixth head coach since Massimo Cellino took over the club in April 2014.

The chairman told the club's official website said: “I would like to thank Uwe for the effort and commitment he showed during his time here.

“He was incredibly professional throughout and we had a strong working relationship. Unfortunately, results didn’t work out for him here and we are now looking elsewhere.

“Uwe leaves on good terms and everybody at Leeds United wishes him well for the future.”

Leeds travel to Fulham on Wednesday in the Championship.
