Huddersfield Town

Terriers defender faces new expectations

10th November 2017, 14:11 by Simon Barlow

Huddersfield Town defender Mathias Jorgensen admits that he needed to adapt to the lesser expectations of playing for the Terriers.

The Denmark international has impressed since arriving at the John Smith's Stadium from FC Copenhagen during the summer, helping Town to stay clear of the relegation zone.

But he admits he needed to adapt during his early months at the club.

The 27-year-old told bold.dk: "It is of course different. In relation to England, football is a very small thing in Denmark. In a town like Huddersfield, everybody lives and breathes football - especially on Saturdays.

"It's very different from what I've been used to in Copenhagen. There are not as high expectations, and that's one of the things that's new to me. The other two clubs I've been to have been top clubs where there has been a demand for all matches to be won.

"Now I have come to a club where there is hope and everybody works hard for it."
