Rosler to spend wisely

New Wigan Athletic manager Uwe Rosler has said he will not spend big in January unless he needs to and may look to utilise the loan market instead of buying.

Uwe Rosler: Wants to bring in the right players

Rosler is expected to have a large amount of James McCarthy's £15million summer transfer fee at his disposal, but he insists he must assess his current side and choose who he wants wisely before splashing the cash.

Brentford just missed out on automatic promotion last season in a thrilling final game, before missing out in the play-offs.

Rosler hopes to use his experience there to take Wigan forward, which could include making use of loan signings.

He said: "We're not always talking about buying players but for me the loan market has gone very well at Brentford Football Club.

"I have not seen enough of the squad to make any sort of adjustment now.

"I've worked in a different league and I'm catching up now but I see them every day in training and we have games in the Europa League and in the league.

"I'm sure that there will be one or two coming in, that does not mean for a lot of money - it is not necessary.

"To be honest we have not discussed it at all but it is natural that, when a new manager comes into a new club, there are maybe one two players he would want to bring in.

"Now is not the time to focus on new players, now is the time to get the best out of what we have because we have good players and that is my main objective."

It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
