Fleetwood Town’s former head coach Uwe Rosler has returned to Scandinavia as manager at Malmo FF.

Sacked from Highbury in February after 19 months in charge, the German could be swapping League One for the Champions League.

The Swedish club are in the qualifiers for Europe’s top club tournament after lifting the Allsvenskan title last year.

However, Malmo’s quest to retain their title got off to a rocky start. They are 10th in the table 12 games into a season which began in April.

That form led to the departure of Daniel Andersson just a month after taking over as head coach.

Rosler began his management career at Lillestrøm in 2004 and went on to manage their Norwegian rivals Viking and Molde.

The ex-Manchester City and Southampton player returned to England in 2010 to manage Brentford and has tooke charge at Wigan and Leeds before joining Town.

Malmo’s Champions League quest begins next month and Rosler said: “The opportunity to work out a club with such rich history makes me proud. Malmo is a good football city and MFF has a huge potential. I hope to contribute to more new titles.”
