Uwe Rosler has left Fleetwood Town as manager following a 3-0 defeat to Doncaster, confirmed by their club website.
The decision was made this evening following a run of results which has seen Fleetwood Town fall to seven straight defeats leaving the Cod Army 20th in League One. The search for his replacement will begin immediately, with Barry Nicholson and David Lucas taking charge of Tuesday’s game against Portsmouth.
Uwe Rosler issued an apology to the Fleetwood fans after a 3-0 defeat at Doncaster saw Fleetwood lose their seventh game in a row.
He said: “I personally apologise for the result. I personally apologise for the run of results we have lately.”
“I am the leader and i take that responsibility on my shoulders. I thank the supporters, that is why I went over to them at the final whistle to thank them for their effort to come here.”
“To come here they support me, they support the team, when we losing 3-0 of course I understand they are very disappointed.”
He added his thoughts on the disappointing defeat.
“I saw beginning of the game very good, they had no chance to break us down, they looked very nervous and we looked better with Ash Hunter on the left, we threatened them more.”
“But we have players that do not do the basics right, we coach the basics every single day.”
“What you should normally do at this level what we do on throw ins, and how we close people down on throws, normally on this level that is a given.”
The 48-year-old German guided the Cod Army to fourth last season, their highest ever finish, before they were beaten by Bradford in the play-offs. And in June 2017 Uwe Rosler signed a new contract with the League One side until 2020 but that has been cut short.
In 2004, Rosler began his managerial career with Lillestrøm in Norway, and later led Viking and Molde FK in Tippeligaen. He also went on to manage Brentford, Wigan Athletic and Leeds United before joining Fleetwood Town succeeding Steven Pressley.
