Sport: Röslers AGF won 3–2 over Brøndby, who thus lose the title in the last game of the season. After the match, the former elite series coach annoyed the Brøndby supporters.

Rösler gestured towards the sideline filled with Brøndby fans and shouted loudly, before the German went straight to the dressing room. It resulted in greater noise on the sidelines.

Brøndby’s reserve goalkeeper Thomas Mikkelsen ran directly towards the German and had to be held back by a large group of people.

The reaction from the AGF coach has also not gone down well with his own boss. Club director Jacob Nielsen regretted the German’s behavior.

– I think it was inappropriate. It does not represent what AGF stands for, and I would like to apologize for that. I have had a conversation with Uwe, but I am keeping what we talked about between him and me, said the AGF director.

Rösler himself denies that he deliberately hovered in front of the Brøndby supporters.

– I did not gesture to any Brøndby fans. In football, we also need to be able to show our emotions. I just shouted “yes” and cheered that we won the game. It was not a message aimed at the Brøndby fans, said the AGF coach.

He immediately went down into the players’ tunnel after the match, and therefore did not register the riots that were going on behind him, he explains further.

Rösler has previously coached elite league clubs Lillestrøm, Viking and Molde.
