Former Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler is the bookies’ favourite for the vacant manager’s role at Bradford City.

The search for a new manager at Valley Parade started this morning, following an announcement that Simon Grayson had left the club, just three months after joining them.

And it seems that Rosler, who has been out of football since leaving Fleetwood Town earlier this year, is the early front runner, being given odds of 3/1 to become the next manager of the Yorkshire club.

He is joint favourite with former Bristol City and Birmingham City boss Steve Cotterill.

Also on the list are: John Sheridan and Phil Brown at 10/1, Chris Coleman, Graham Alexander and Paul Hurst at 12/1, and Mick McCarthy at 14/1.

All odds are taken from Sky Bet’s official site.

Uwe Rosler started his managerial career in Norway, where he managed Lillestrom, Viking and Molde.

He returned to England, where he had been a big hit as a Man City player, to become the Brentford manager in 2011, leading them to promotion to the second tier, where they remain to this day.

Following Wigan Athletic’s relegation from the Premier League, Rosler took charge of the Latics, where he stayed for a year before getting sacked as the club fell into the Sky Bet Championship relegation places.

In May 2015, the former East Germany international took the manager’s job at Leeds United. He didn’t last long at Elland Road, and he was sacked in October of the same year.

Rosler’s most recent job in management was at Sky Bet League One side Fleetwood Town, where he led the Cod Army to their highest ever league finish in 2016/17, before being sacked in January 2018 after seven straight defeats.
