Huddersfield: Defeat at Palace could decide Siewert’s future at club

Huddersfield: Defeat at Palace could decide Siewert’s future at club

It has been a truly terrible season for Huddersfield Town in the Premier League.

The Terriers’ miraculous survival at the end of the 2017/18 campaign must seem like it was a lifetime ago for the club’s supporters who have witnessed their side win just three games in England’s top tier this year.

Following David Wagner’s departure from the club in January, Jan Siewert took over yet unfortunately for the German, results have barely improved, raising concerns on whether he is the right man to lead them into the future.

With the club bottom of the Premier League and sixteen points from safety, it is safe to say that they will be playing Championship football next season and so will need to adapt to their new surroundings after two years in the top tier.

Siewert, who had no previous experience of managing in English football before joining Huddersfield, may have to prove why he should stay at the club in the final seven games of the seasons, with the first of those being Saturday’s fixture against Crystal Palace.

A convincing victory over the Eagles could buy the 36-year-old some more time to try and implement his tactics on his players. However, a heavy defeat may force Terriers chairman Dean Hoyle to make a decision on his future at the end of the season giving the state of his current record.

Although he has only been in charge for eight games, Siewert has only been able to lead Huddersfield to pick up three points from a possible 24, illustrating that he may be out of his depth at Premier League level.

Therefore, it is paramount for his future that the club shown some signs of improvement towards the end of the season if he is to keep his job in the summer.

What do you think Huddersfield fans? Should Siewert remain Terriers boss in the summer? Or should Hoyle cut ties with the German in favour of someone who has previous experience of managing in the Championship? Get in touch below.
