Rosler takes first training session

1 August 2016

New Head Coach impressed with Poolfoot Farm facilities

Uwe Rosler held his first training session as Fleetwood Town’s Head Coach this morning, and spoke of his excitement of the challenge ahead.

The 47-year-old took charge of the Cod Army over the weekend and has wasted no time in stamping his authority around the club.

After meeting the coaching staff this morning, Rosler took to the grass to meet his new players and told the official site how impressed he was with the club’s new £9m Poolfoot Farm training ground.

“With the facilities we have, the great stadium, and the fantastic training facilities, we have to use those,” explained the new boss.

“We have to attract players from big academies and non-league, there is a successful story with Fleetwood Town and Jamie Vardy, we have to cover all those potential players, and develop them successfully.

“The owner, from the first-team to the academy, have such a great facility, I hope to use it in the best possible way, you have to work very well with the players, we have to get the best out of it, and come into work with a smile.

“We are in a special place, and want to make it count by using it in the best possible way.”

Rosler has agreed a two-year deal to take charge at Highbury and will be in the dugout for the big kick-off at Northampton on Saturday.

And he expressed his delight of being back out on the training ground this morning.

Adding: “I was really keen to get back out on the grass again, I had several options in the UK and abroad, but the relationship with the owner, the discussions and the meetings we had excited me.

“I’m at a very special club with a great history, especially in the last few years, winning so many promotions, improving the football club, improving the facilities, and playing in League One, so it has been a successful story, I hope with me as Head Coach, we can write a new chapter.

“Andy Pilley and Gretar Steinsson sold me Fleetwood Town in a very positive way, hopefully we can write a successful story, I am ambitious, the owner is very ambitious, we want to be successful, we have to be a little bit different than most over clubs, because of the size of the club."
