Huddersfield Town

Winter confident of keeping star players

23rd January 2019, 12:09 by Tom Hill

Huddersfield Town chief executive Julian Winter claims the club will not be forced to sell their best players if they are relegated.

The Terriers are rock bottom of the Premier League table after picking up just 11 points from their first 23 games.

They are also 10 points from safety after the defeat to Manchester City on Sunday but new boss Jan Siewert will be looking to hit the ground running when they take on Everton on Tuesday January 29.

Some fans are worried about their plans for the 2019/2020 Championship season but Winter insists the club are prepared for all outcomes.

He told the Telegraph: "To be blunt, this club has been prepared for getting into the Premier League and it will be prepared if it is not in the Premier League.

"We retained our status last season, which was fabulous. But we know that if this club does get relegated, it doesn’t fall into crisis. There aren’t fire sales."
