Siewert up for Huddersfield challenge

22nd January 2019, 18:04 by Gareth Freeman

New boss Jan Siewert says he is looking forward to the challenge of trying to keep Huddersfield in the Premier League.

The Terriers sit bottom of the table and are 10 points adrift of safety.

Siewert says he would not have left his role as the Borussia Dortmund II manager if he did not believe he could guide Huddersfield to survival.

He told reporters: "I am confident that I can show my work here in the Premier League. I respect all the things in the Premier League, the biggest league in the world, and I’m proud I can be a part of it.

"Since my coaching career, I’ve always challenged myself and develop year on year. I like to challenge myself and most importantly I like to challenge the lads. I’m looking forward to it.”

The 36-year-old German hopes to get Town playing in his own style but feels it will take time.

He added: “I have my own way of playing football. We are in a certain situation at the moment and the team is in a certain situation, so first of all I’d like to point out that I have to understand the players, then we can do everything, of course. My style is my style, but we have to work it out with the players because they are important.”
