HEAD coach Uwe Rosler admits taking Leeds United back into the Premier League would be a “massive achievement” - yet the German won’t look past United’s first six games.

Rosler will take charge of his first competitive Whites fixture with Saturday’s Elland Road Championship opener with Burnley who themselves have just been relegated from the country’s top flight.

Rosler is now ultimately charged with ending United’s 11-year exile from the Premier - and would gain hero status should he achieve that goal - but the German is adamant he will focus only on the here and now.

Asked what winning promotion with his new club Leeds would mean, Rosler admitted: “To get that right and get this football club right (back in the Premier) would be a massive achievement.

“But for me, and I’m not just saying it, I really mean it, I am just concentrating on the first block of games until the international break.

“That is all I am focusing on and all I am doing 24-7 now and I think that is the best way for me personally to stay sharp and stay focussed and also for the players.

“I have had so much to do I have not had time to think further than that, honestly, and what comes comes.”
