No approach for Rosler, say Brentford

Brentford chief executive Mark Devlin says the club have not received an approach from Wigan for Uwe Rosler.

Bees boss Rosler has been installed as the bookmakers’ favourite to succeed Owen Coyle as manager of the Championship side.

Coyle left the DW Stadium this week and former Manchester City striker Rosler’s family home is in the North West.

Devlin told West London Sport: “Because his family live there it’s perhaps a case of people putting two and two together.

“We’ve had no approach for Uwe, he’s a big part of our future plans and we know he’s very happy here.”

Rosler, 45, was appointed by Brentford in 2011 and 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 team are fourth in the table and unbeaten in nine matches.

And tonight the club hope their ambitious long-term plans will be given the green light by Hounslow Council granting permission for a new 20,000-capacity stadium to be built at Lionel Road.
