Jan Not The Man? Siewert under-fire at Huddersfield Town

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 15 August 2019, 15:10

Jan Siewert has overseen 18 matches at Huddersfield Town since he was surprisingly chosen as David Wagner’s replacement at the start of the year.

In those seven months the former Borussia Dortmund II manager has carved out only one win - against Wolves in February - drawn three times and suffered a whopping 14 defeats.

Huddersfield, who were relegated from the Premier League with a meagre 16 points, have since taken their poor form into the new Championship campaign, where they’ve lost to Derby and drawn with QPR.

Earlier this week the confidence-crushed club were booted out of the Carabao Cup by League One side Lincoln.

It’s fair to say that social media reaction to the Terriers’ cup exit was unflattering, with many frustrated fans demanding a change in the dugout after failing to witness a single victory in 13 games stretching nearly half-a-year.

“I understood the reaction of the supporters because I was massively disappointed too,” Siewert said in Thursday’s press conference.

“I have spoken to the players about it and I expect them to show more fight. When asked about his position, Siewert said:

When asked about his position, Siewert said:

“The only one who can feel pressure is me, and I don’t feel it.”

It’s worth noting that another ex-Dortmund II boss, Daniel Farke, endured a slow start with Norwich last season - he picked up one point from the club’s opening three league games - but then everything clicked and the Canaries soared up to the top-flight as champions.

It’s open to debate whether Siewert can rejuvenate his stuttering squad and crush the critics, as a defeat at home to Scott Parker’s Fulham this weekend could result in the sack.

Meanwhile, the club’s former promotion-winning boss Wagner - now in charge of Schalke - had a message for Terriers fans on talkSPORT:

"Stay strong and keep believing.

"Go on and support the team."
