Rosler wants to do it for Dyke
Brentford manager Uwe Rosler said it would be the perfect leaving present to their outgoing Chairman if his side could win promotion to the Championship.
Greg Dyke, 65, will take up a new role at the FA after seven years at the west London club, and Rosler admitted to being sad that he’s leaving.
“If we, as a group of coaches and players can give him this present it will be fantastic.
“I remember when he called me, he texted me to say to call him back and I though it was to sack me.
“He said he was leaving and at that moment I should have been happy for him, but my first reaction was sad, because I have a very close relationship with him.
“I always felt I could call him at any stage, so to lose him and replace him is very difficult.
“But later, when I realised what he has achieved, by joining the FA, I called him back to say ‘well done; I’m happy for you’.”
Dyke, a former Manchester United director, takes over from David Bernstein as FA Chairman in July in what is the FA’s 150th anniversary.
