Brentford allow Wigan to speak to Rosler

Wigan have been given permission by Brentford to speak to Uwe Rosler about the vacant manager’s job at the DW Stadium.

West London Sport revealed on Thursday afternoon that Brentford had received an approach from the Latics.

Former Manchester City striker Rosler, whose family home is in the North West, is in the frame to succeed Owen Coyle, who left the Championship club this week.

Brentford have agreed a compensation sum and the 45-year-old German is now set to leave.

Rosler, who took over as manager at Griffin Park in 2011, is under contract until the summer of 2015.

News of Wigan’s approach came hours before Brentford received the green light from Hounslow Council to build a 20,000-capacity stadium at Lionel Road.

Rosler almost led them to promotion last season, when they lost out to Doncaster on the final day and were then beaten by Yeovil in the League One play-off final.

After a shaky spell this term, Rosler’s side are fourth in the table and unbeaten in nine matches.
