Relegated Huddersfield confirm Jan Siewert will STAY next season
Huddersfield confirm boss Jan Siewert will STAY next season despite club being relegated with six games to play
- Huddersfield’s relegation from the Premier League was confirmed on weekend
- The Terriers’ 2-0 loss to Crystal Palace consigned them to the Championship
- However, the club have confirmed that Jan Siewert will continue as manager
Huddersfield Town owner Dean Hoyle is adamant Jan Siewert will be in charge to plot a Premier League return next season.
Siewert has lost eight of his nine games at the helm following David Wagner’s resignation in January, with Huddersfield’s relegation to the Championship confirmed last weekend.
Hoyle addressed the dismal campaign in a statement released on Monday afternoon and insisted his manager will remain in situ.

‘Jan Siewert came in at a difficult time and he would be the first to tell you that he’s not happy with the results we’ve had so far,’ Hoyle said.
‘However, I believe Jan has made a big impact on the first team already. He’s made some big decisions and has shown a real understanding of putting the club first.
‘I’m very pleased with the work he has put in and I’m genuinely excited to see what his team will look like after a full pre-season. The board is fully behind Jan as the man to take us forward.
‘With Jan at the helm, a clear focus and our amazing supporters backing us all the way, there’s plenty to look forward to.’
A number of senior players have found game-time limited under the German, who has partly based selection down to who he believes will have a meaningful impact next season.
Jonas Lossl, Philip Billing and Mathias Jorgensen were all left out of the squad for Saturday’s defeat by Crystal Palace after individually speaking about their futures while away on international duty with Denmark.
Lossl, the 30-year-old goalkeeper, talked up interest from Ligue 1 clubs Monaco and Marseille.
Billing, who Watford have been tracking, also confirmed he will be departing the John Smith’s Stadium in the summer. Jorgensen suggested he could move abroad.
The Terriers have endured a miserable season and were relegated in record-equalling time
‘Jan has a very clear playing identity, which is vitally important to us. It allows us to recruit players who will fit his style,’ Hoyle added.
‘As well as recruitment, we want to be the fittest team, the hardest-working team and show a real togetherness. If we put all those elements together, it’ll be an exciting prospect for every Town fan.
‘The club, myself included, is always learning and we must accept that we have got things wrong this season.
‘To see the travelling supporters meet relegation with such dignity and pride at Selhurst Park this weekend was special. I think it showed that the unity we have built here over a decade is still strong despite the disappointment on the pitch this season.
‘That is backed up by the amazing season card sales to date, with over 90 per cent of fans renewing. That’s truly incredible, and we’re all so grateful.’
