Huddersfield Town sack their manager

Huddersfield Town have tonight confirmed the sacking of first team head coach Jan Siewert following his side’s 2-1 defeat to Fulham, dropping to 20th in the Championship table.

It meant the Terriers remain winless this season and picked up just one win in 19 games under Siewert, leaving the board no choice but to axe the former Borussia Dortmund II boss especially after Tuesday’s home Carabao Cup defeat by League One Lincoln City.

He took over in January after David Wagner made way for the exit, but couldn’t prevent them from dropping out of the Premier League.


“Huddersfield Town has this evening terminated the contract of Head Coach Jan Siewert with immediate effect.

“Siewert joined the Club from Borussia Dortmund in January 2019 in the Club’s ultimately 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 Sky Bet Championship defeat to Fulham on Friday evening.

“No further comment will be made this evening.”

It’s claimed by John Percy from the Telegraph that first-team coach Mark Hudson is the man to take over in the next few days.


2015-16: Rot-Weiss Essen – managed 29, won 7, drew 12, lost 10 – (24.1 win %)
2017-19: Borussia Dortmund II – managed 55, won 25, drew 15, lost 15 – (45.5 win %)
2019: Huddersfield Town – managed 19, won 1, drew 3, lost 15 – (5.3 win %)

Total – managed 103, won 33, drew 30, lost 40 – (32.0 win %)
