Struggling Premier League side, Huddersfield Town, have appointed German coach, Jan Siewert, their new manager.
Huddersfield made the announcement on their official website on Monday.
Siewert takes over from David Wagner who parted company with Huddersfield following strings of poor results which has kept them bottom of the league.
“Huddersfield Town is delighted to announce the appointment of Jan Siewert as its new Head Coach,” the club said in a statement on their website.
“The 36-year-old joins The Terriers from German side Borussia Dortmund II, where he held the position of Head Coach, signing a contract running until the summer of 2021.”
“Following a playing career in Germany with TuS Mayen, SG Bad Breisig and TuS Montabaur, Jan moved into coaching and has gained experience as a coach in Germany’s international youth sides as well as senior management roles at VfL Bochum, Rot-Weiss Essen and his role as Borussia Dortmund II Head Coach.”
Speaking on Siewert’s appointment, Huddersfield Town Chairman Dean Hoyle said:“I’d like to begin by officially welcoming Jan to Huddersfield Town. I’m tremendously excited about working with him as our new Head Coach.
“Let me start by addressing the obvious. 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.”
