#HTTV caught up with a buoyant Collin Quaner as he reported back to Huddersfield Town completing his first week of pre-season training.
The attacker spent the latter part of last season on loan at Ipswich Town, racking up four goals and four assists from his 16 appearances for The Tractor Boys. Despite Ipswich’s relegation to Sky Bet League One, there were many positives from the experience for Quaner:
“It was a really difficult situation for the Club [Ipswich]. We tried our best but unfortunately we wasn’t able to stay in the league, but for me personally it was a good step because I got back playing, being on the pitch and was able to score some goals and assists and all in all it was positive for me.
Quaner returns from to the Club with The Terriers now under the stewardship of Jan Siewert. Whilst the significant changes at the top, there is still a familiar feel around the place and in and around the dressing room for Quaner:
“For me it hasn’t been a really long time; it doesn’t feel like I’ve been away for a long time. A few things changed but a lot of things are the same – most of the faces are still the same and I feel comfortable being back here.
Preparations are underway for the new Sky Bet Championship with Jan Siewert’s side jetting out to Austria at the end of next week to commence their pre-season fixture schedule.
Having been promoted with Town during the 2017/18, Quaner has lot of Championship experience that he is hopes to use to full effect next season:
“For me I was playing in the Championship for half-a-year then we got promoted to the Premier League. I then played half a year in the Premier League and went to Ipswich. My aim now is to make my games constantly for a whole season in the Championship.
“The Premier League is the best in the world, but I think the Championship is the hardest. Physically and mentally it is something different to play one whole year in the Championship so I think this will be my goal and the biggest challenge.”
