League One club Fleetwood Town have been unveiling their new manager.
The former Wigan boss and Manchester City hero Uwe Rosler has taken over on a two-year contract, replacing Steven Pressley.
He's been meeting the media in the last hour and our sports correspondent David Chisnall has caught up with him.
Fleetwood Town Football Club has confirmed it has accepted the resignation of manager Steven Pressley. A statement on the club's official website read:
Fleetwood Town can confirm we have agreed to accept the resignation of manager Steven Pressley.
The decision was made this morning following a meeting with the 42-year-old where it was agreed it would be best to take the club in a different direction.
Fleetwood Town would like to thank Steven for his professionalism and effort during his nine months at Highbury, particularly in successfully maintaining the club’s League One status last season.
Our focus will now turn to the prompt recruitment of a new manager to take the club forward.

Fleetwood's RNLI volunteers are set for a new era of lifesaving with the arrival of their new lifeboat.
The £2.2 boat provides the town with one of the fastest vessels in the RNLI fleet.
It's been named Kenneth James Pierpoint, a Royal Air Force pilot who died aged just 20 in August 1942.
The purchase of the boat was only made possible thanks to a donation to the RNLI in Kenneth's memory by his sister Kathleen Mary Pierpoint.
Fleetwood's last lifeboat, named William Street, has been in service since 1989.
In that time, crews have carried out 528 rescues, and saved the lives of hundreds of people.
"The Shannon is capable of speeds of 25 knots, almost 50 per cent faster than our current lifeboat, and is more manoeuvrable.
"That means our crew will reach casualties more quickly and effectively, increasing the chance of saving their lives."
Shola Ameobi made his name with Newcastle United and more recently played for Bolton.
But now he's dropped down to League One to help the Cod Army net some much needed points.
David Chisnall has this report.
Former Newcastle striker Shola Ameobi has been explaining why he joined Sky Bet League One Fleetwood on a deal until the end of the season.
The 34-year-old has been without a club since his contract with Bolton came to an end last month.
Ameobi made 312 appearances and scored 53 goals during his 14-year stay at Newcastle, which came to an end in 2014.
He subsequently had a spell in Turkey before joining Crystal Palace then moved on to Bolton with whom he signed a short-term deal in October.
It's one of the biggest football derbies never to be played.
That is until this weekend.
On Saturday afternoon neighbours Blackpool and Fleetwood Town will face each other in a league game for the very first time.
