Leeds Eye Kelly As Assistant To Rosler

Last updated : 28 May 2015 By .

Experienced coach Kelly looks set to be the next non-playing arrival at Leeds, and will act as Rosler’s No 2.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds’ new boss was given the freedom to appoint his own coaching staff, and has selected Birmingham-born Kelly to be his first addition.

Kelly began the season at West Bromwich Albion but departed when Alan Irvine was sacked and when Tony Pulis took over at the Hawthorns.

The 50-year-old has plenty of Football League experience as a coach and has previously worked at Leicester City, Preston North End, Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest.

Kelly’s only full-time managerial position came in 2006/07 with Leicester City, although he has been employed as caretaker at most of the club’s he’s worked at.

It is also believed that Kelly will be joined by another coach, selected by Rosler, with a dedicated head of recruitment also set to be appointed.
