Terriers boss seeks help from the man he replaced

8th February 2019, 08:34 by Nick Harris

Boss Jan Siewert will talk to former Huddersfield manager David Wagner as he looks to keep the club in the Premier League.

Siewert replaced Wagner last month and will take charge of his third game at home against Arsenal on Saturday.

The Terriers are 13 points adrift of safety at the foot of the table, with 13 games remaining, although Siewert has insisted he has not given up and intends to pick the brains of his fellow German.

"Yep, he's been on holiday and I will talk to him," Siewert said. "He has been on holiday, so we agreed to phone in the next week.

"He did a great job here. That's why I want to chat with him and we will do this next week, and that's good for me."

Wagner departed by mutual consent and the gap between Huddersfield and safety has since widened by two points after Siewert's arrival following defeats to Everton and Chelsea.

The Terriers announced this week that owner/chairman Dean Hoyle is well on the road to a full recovery following pancreatitis and Siewert agreed that has lifted the mood at the club.

"Definitely, he's a great chairman," Siewert said, while the 36-year-old also denied he has already got one eye on the Championship for next season.

"I won't agree at all. As long as it's mathematically possible, everything is possible, and I still believe," he said.

When asked why, the former Borussia Dortmund II boss added: "I think the way we work. Simple as that. My thoughts just concern this season. It's just game, game, game, game."
