The Football Association of Norway are interested in hiring Fleetwood Town manager Uwe Rosler as their next first-team boss, according to the Daily Mail.

The 48-year-old has driven his team to fourth in the League One table after being appointed manager in July last year. Fleetwood have had a fantastic season with just seven losses and are undefeated in the league since a clash with Port Vale on the 12th of November. A fourth-placed finish at the end of the season would be the highest in the club’s history.

Rosler was quick to make the team his own and has signed an astonishing 27 players since arriving in the summer and it now appears Norway have been impressed with the German’s managerial ability. The Scandinavian side endured a difficult 2016 as they won just one competitive fixture and are looking for a successor to Per-Mathias Hogmo.

The Norwegian FA are preparing an official approach for the Fleetwood boss and a move to Norway would have personal appeal to Rosler. His wife is Norwegian and his son plays for Norway’s U16s team. The German finished his playing career at Norwegian outfit Lillestrom before beginning his managerial career with the Tippeligaen side.

The loss of their manager would hit Fleetwood hard after what is perhaps the club’s most impressive season yet. The League One outfit defeated league-leaders Sheffield United this week and entertain play-off rivals Southend United on Saturday.

Should Rosler become the Norway boss, his first game in-charge would be a 2018 World Cup qualifier away to Northern Ireland.
