Leeds United Sack Rosler And Line Up Evans

Uwe Rosler has been sacked as Leeds United manager after just 11 Championship matches in charge at Elland Road

Assistant manager Rob Kelly and first team coach Rob Kelly have also been placed on gardening leave.

Leeds have lost their last three games and were beaten 2-1 at home by Brighton at the weekend, conceding an 89th minute goal to Bobby Zamora, leaving them 18th in the table.

Owner Massimo Cellino responded by removing Rosler from his position, with the German confirming to Sky Sports News on Monday morning he is no longer in charge.

Having won just two league games so far, he becomes the fifth manager to be sacked since Cellino took control in 2014.

Leeds were also eliminated from the Capital One Cup by League One side Rotherham under his guidance.

It is understood former Rotherham United manager Steve Evans is the favourite to take over from Rosler.

He is believed to have arrived at the club's Thorp Arch training ground on Monday morning, which suggests a quick appointment could be made.

Evans left the New York Stadium with his assistant Paul Raynor last month due to a difference of opinions with the club's owners.

The Scotsman had managed Rotherham for more than three years after previous stints at the helms of Boston United and Crawley Town.
