Siewert heaps praise on Huddersfield squad

28th January 2019, 14:17 by Tom McGarry

Jan Siewert has praised the togetherness of his Huddersfield squad ahead of his first match in charge on Tuesday.

Siewert was appointed as David Wagner's successor at the John Smith's Stadium last week and his first game at the helm will come when they play host to Everton in the Premier League.

The 36-year-old has taken over a Terriers side that are rooted to the bottom of the table and 10 points adrift of safety following a run that has seen them collect just one point from their last 10 games.

However, the former Borussia Dortmund II coach has been quick to praise the togetherness of his players after getting to know them better during a recent training camp in Portugal.

"I got to know the players very well in Portugal. The togetherness is there and great to see," Siewert told reporters.

"It's a progress that will take time, but the players have really understood my idea of football so far. It's great to see how open-minded they are to new things."

Siewert has also confirmed the club are still working hard to get new faces through the door before the January transfer window closes, with Jason Puncheon currently the only first-team player to arrive this month.

He added: "I'm in constant communication with the recruitment team. We will see what happens over the next three days."
