Fleetwood Town head coach Uwe Rosler has told the Fleetwood Weekly News that the reports linking him with Norwich City are fake news.
The Canaries are currently without a manager after deciding to sack Alex Neil following an underwhelming season which sees them outside the Sky bet Championship play-off places. They have been linked to several people since his departure but most recently there were suggestions they had made an approach for Fleetwood’s manager Uwe Rosler with it being instigated by the new sporting director Stuart Webber.
But in a press conference ahead of Fleetwood’s match against Swindon Town, Rosler took the time to deny he has been approached by Norwich and is set to leave the club to jump back into the Championship. He even took a leaf out of US President Donald Trump’s book by using one of his favourite phrases to dismiss the reports linking him to Carrow Road.
He said: “The club is not approached by anybody, I am not approached by anybody – it is fake news.”
“Players, staff, coaches, everybody committed and looking forward to the last of the season.”
“I have another year contract, anything else is speculation and that is the last time I comment on anything on that.”
Rosler remains the favourite to get the job despite this denial. Other people currently linked to the vacant role are caretaker manager Alan Irvine, Barnsley head coach Paul Heckingbottom and Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner. Irvine will be in charge for Norwich’s next match against Aston Villa.
