Huddersfield Town have reached an agreement with another German manager, Jan Siewert is the one that will replace David Wagner at the Premier League bottom club. Siewert is just 36 years old and he was the coach of Borussia Dortmund's second team before becoming the new Terriers manager. David Wagner left the club
by mutual agreement last week following a goalless draw at Cardiff. Wagner held the same job as Siewert at Borussia before joining Huddersfield in 2015. The Terriers are at the bottom of the Premier League table with just eleven points collected in 23 matches. They have won just two games since the start of the season and scored just 13 goals.
Mark Hudson took temporary charge of the team for Sunday's home match against Manchester City. which Huddersfield lost 3-0. Terriers chairman Dean Hoyle said: "We enjoyed tremendous success under our previous head coach, David Wagner, and we've subsequently appointed a new head coach that bears many similarities to him; a young, aspirational German from Borussia Dortmund II. However, that does a disservice to Jan, who is his own man. There is much more to this appointment than that." In fact, Wagner was the man who led Huddersfield to the top flight of English football for the first time since 1972.
Chairman Dean Hoyle added that the club were following Siewert for a long time, in case they needed a replacement for Wagner. "Given David's success at Huddersfield Town, we knew that it was prudent to look to the future in case an offer came in that he couldn't refuse. David was fully aware that we were undertaking this work - you must prepare for the future. Jan's name came to our attention in his previous role as assistant manager and Under-19 coach at VfL Bochum. We first spoke with him over two years ago and we've kept in communication since. His reputation in the game is very good. He's known as a coach who is ambitious, has many qualities and who has strong philosophies. As such, it came as no surprise to us when he moved to one of the world's biggest clubs, Borussia Dortmund."
Huddersfield are currently 14/1 to rescue themselves from relegation this season.
