Captain reflects on the final home game of the season
Huddersfield Town Captain Peter Clarke felt his side didn’t do enough to warrant victory against a clinical Leicester City side.
“It was a very good side we were up against with some very good individuals and I don’t think we tested them enough,” said Clarke. “We had some good passages of play and some good spells in the game, but I don’t think we caused them enough problems throughout.
“I think after last week there was an air of relief around the place,” he continued. “It’s taken a massive effort to get to where we have this season, although we shouldn’t have ever been in that situation in all honesty. Today, against a very good side, we didn’t do enough to warrant winning the game, having said that, I don’t think they were the best side on the afternoon, just maybe slightly more clinical.”
Clarke is out of contract at Town in the summer and thanked fans for their support during his five years at the Club.
“I would like to thank the fans from the bottom of my heart for the support I’ve had here for five years, I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my time here and I will leave with some fantastic memories.
“It’s been a long week, I’ve spent three days with food poisoning so just to get through and play the game was a bonus really. I’ve been very fortunate to spend five years as captain of this Club, I’m immensely proud.”
“I’ve always said I want to play for as long as I can and that’s no different, we’ll see what happens in the close season, there’s still plenty of football left in me and I want to play for as long as I can because you’re a long time retired and you can’t beat playing football on Saturday at 3pm.”
