Rösler is renowned for his teams playing a high, pressing style of football, and is also a fan of squad rotation among players, with 4-3-3 or 3-5-2 his favoured formations.

Rösler compared his style and brand of football similar to the philosophies of German compatriot Jurgen Klopp, with Rösler describing the style of football as ‘heavy metal‘ attacking football, with powerful quick football with quick transitions from attack to defence.
