Huddersfield Town would do well by appointing this 37-year-old former player as their permanent manager

Huddersfield opinion: Huddersfield town should appoint Mark Hudson

Huddersfield Town sacked manager Jan Siewert after the 2-1 loss to Fulham last Friday after a very difficult couple of months since taking charge of the club in January, following the departure of his compatriot David Wagner.

Wagner, who is now the Schalke manager, was a heroic figure for the club as he got them promoted despite a negative goal difference and also managed to keep them in the Premier League for one season despite the lack of resources and real quality.

It was quite a miraculous achievement and it was always going to be difficult to follow up on that Siewert had a very difficult job on his hands.

Siewert shared many of the philosophies of Wagner, but he simply could not turn them into results.

He got his first big win in February against Wolverhampton Wanderers but that was the only ray of light in his 7 months in charge of the club besides a well-earned draw against Manchester United at home towards the end of the season.

However, he simply didn’t do enough and the ties had to be cut off and the Examiner Live has reported that current caretaker manager, Mark Hudson, is one of the favourites for the job.

Hudson played for Huddersfield from the 2014-17 season and has no real experience of managing but will be hoping that he can take the job long-term. The 37-year-old did not have the best of starts and will feel hard done by in his first game in charge after losing at the death to Cardiff City.

This would have been a top-flight fixture last season, but both teams will have to do an awful lot better than this if they want to return to the highest level.

Hudson was actually a former Cardiff City player and was captain when they got promoted in the 2012-13 season and this wasn’t a great return for him.

The Terriers need to get going and will be hoping that Hudson can prove himself for the time being as the fans will give him more leeway than others.

If he can get a good run on board, he’ll be responsible for stopping the rut and having worked under Wagner, he might be able to use some of his methods for Huddersfield Town. His leadership qualities will definitely help inspire and should be considered for the job full-time.
