Uwe Rosler has emerged as a contender for the manager’s job at Preston North End.

Coach Frankie McAvoy has been given preliminary leadership after the resignation of Alex Neil and PNE reveal that they have just under 60 applicants for the job.

Rosler, 52, coaches Fortuna Düsseldorf in Germany’s second division, but his contract expires this summer.

The former Manchester City favorite has a good track record in England leading Brentford, Wigan Athletic, Leeds United and Fleetwood Town and developing a reputation for playing offensive football with a solid defense.

It has also had success in Norway and Sweden, but maintains strong ties in the Northwest.

Preston will take on Swansea on Monday as they aim to finish the season at a peak after dropping to 17th place in the championship table. They are willing to put McAvoy in charge before confirming their next manager.

However, Rosler’s broad experience and ability to work within a tight budget will serve him well as Preston assesses their candidates at the end of the season.
