Fleetwood Town manager Uwe Rosler will leave whether the club are promoted or not this season, according to Sunday’s print edition of The Sun.
Fleetwood are currently third in the League One table, 10 points behind leaders Sheffield United. However the club are only six points behind 2nd place Bolton Wanderers, and will be looking to catch them in the final seven games of the season. Fleetwood look almost certain to get at least a play-off place, sitting nine points away from seventh place.
Rosler joined the club at the start of the season and has exceeded all expectations so far. If he can lead the club to promotion to the Championship, it will be the club’s seventh promotion in 13 years.
Rosler’s took his first job in English football with Brentford in 2011 and came very close to going up to the Championship with the club. However, he took the Wigan Athletic job in 2013 before being sacked less than a year later. Leeds United was the next destination for Rosler, but again he was sacked after a very short spell in charge.
Huddersfield Town’s current Head of Football Operations, Stuart Webber, will join Norwich City shortly and is understood to be a big fan of Rosler. Webber reportedly wanted to replace current Huddersfield boss David Wagner with Rosler, should Wagner leave Huddersfield. It is believed that Webber will now try to get Rosler again, this time for Norwich.
Uwe Rosler is currently the very heavy odds-on favourite for the Norwich job, and looks like he will be managing in the Championship next season no matter what happens.
