Siewert Sacked

Huddersfield Town fired Head Coach Jan Siewert after their 2-1 defeat to Fulham last night.

Huddersfield Town have terminated the contract of boss Jan Siewert.

Siewert joined the Club from Borussia Dortmund in January 2019 in the club’s unsuccessful fight against relegation from the Premier League and led the team in the first four competitive games of the new season, with his final game in charge being the Championship defeat to Fulham on Friday evening.

In a statement, Chairman Phil Hodgkinson said “Last night’s 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 during his time here, but unfortunately it has not worked. I believe he is a good coach and I sincerely hope he will be successful in the future.

“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.”

First Team Coach Mark Hudson will take temporary charge of the team, beginning with the Championship game at Cardiff City on Wednesday evening.
