‘We’ll get bite back’ at Terriers
CHAIRMAN Phil Hodgkinson has backed Huddersfield to turn things around after giving Jan Siewert the boot.
The German coach was fired after Friday night’s defeat to Fulham – his 15th loss since taking charge in January.
It ended a dismal run of just one win in his 19-game spell at the Terriers.
The wheels are in motion to find a replacement, with assistant Mark Hudson in temporary charge.
Hodgkinson, who appointed Siewert after David Wagner’s departure, admitted: “The decision was not one that I, nor the board, took lightly, but I believe it is one that had to be made.
“Jan walked into a very difficult situation in January, something that we were all aware, and mindful, of.
“However, I have seen no evidence of the impact on our performances that I was expecting following a full pre-season.
“Jan is a fantastic man and he’s worked tirelessly for this club in his time here, but, unfortunately, it has not worked.
“I believe our players are better than we have seen so far this season.
“We will work to appoint a new head coach who can get the best from them and bring an identity back to our performances.”
