Town Chairman on decision to part company with Jan Siewert

- Phil Hodgkinson comments on Jan Siewert’s departure
- Mark Hudson to take temporary charge of the First Team

Huddersfield Town Chairman Phil Hodgkinson has today commented on the decision to part company with Jan Siewert following Friday night’s Sky Bet Championship game against Fulham.

“Last night’s decision was not one that I, nor the Board, took lightly, but I believe it is one that had to be made,” the Chairman explained to

“Jan walked into a very difficult situation in January; something that we were all aware, and mindful, of. However, I have seen no evidence of the impact on our performances that I was expecting following a full pre-season.

“Jan is a fantastic man and he’s worked tirelessly for this Club during his time here, but unfortunately it has not worked. I believe he is a good coach and I sincerely hope he will be successful in the future.

“I believe our players are better than we have seen so far this season. We will work to appoint a new Head Coach who can get the best from them and bring an identity back to our performances.”

First Team Coach Mark Hudson will take temporary charge of the team, beginning with the Sky Bet Championship game at Cardiff City on Wednesday evening.
