HUDDERSFIELD TOWN'S MANAGER SEARCH CONTINUES

Huddersfield Town’s search for a new manager is already hotting up following the sacking of David Wagner earlier this week.

Former player and under-23s boss Mark Hudson will take charge of the Terriers this weekend and maybe even beyond as they host the champions, Manchester City.

However, he may not be in charge for much longer with Huddersfield keen to get a new manager in quickly.

The Terriers seem to be all-but relegated from the Premier League having amassed just 10 points so far this season, so a new man would have to be willing to work in the Championship.

But who are the contenders? Which managers are most likely to be the next boss standing on the sidelines at the John Smith’s Stadium?

JAN SIEWERT

Odds – 2/1 with BetVictor

Huddersfield Town seem to have earmarked Jan Siewert as their next manager, opting to select another German boss.

This is far from a done deal, but it appears the Borussia Dortmund II manager is top of their shortlist.

The 36-year-old was appointed by Dortmund’s second team in July 2017, and he remains with the club. Borussia Dortmund II are currently fourth in their league and four points off second place.

David Wagner arrived at Huddersfield from Borussia Dortmund II, so it would be a case of hoping to get the same results with the same decision.

This would be a risky move, but it certainly worked before. With Huddersfield all-but down, it would be interesting to see how Siewert handles the Championship, though Wagner and now Daniel Farke of Norwich have proven that Germans can adapt well to the second tier of English football.

It’s also worth noting that Huddersfield already have four German players, and this appointment would fit the squad nicely in that respect.

AITOR KARANKA

The Spaniard walked away from his job with Nottingham Forest earlier this month after being rather unfairly treated by the board in the East Midlands.

He had Forest in and around the play-offs with fans happy with his job, but still he had to work while the board looked to replace him, with constant speculation over his future.

That caused him to call time on his time at Nottingham Forest, leaving plenty of disappointed fans behind at the City Ground.

In terms of what Huddersfield need, Karanka would very a very sound appointment. Realistically, the Terriers are going to be playing Championship football next season.

Aitor Karanka, as we all know by now, is a very good Championship manager. He’s someone who knows how to get results in that division.

He lead Middlesbrough to a promotion to the Premier League, and he had Forest competing for a play-off spot this season despite years of disappointment at the club.

He has a solid coaching education, working with the young Spanish national team age groups, before going on to work as an assistant for none other than Real Madrid.

Karanka has proven his ability to get results, and that’s what Huddersfield are going to need in what’s set to be a tough season of next. Karanka is a safe option.

SLAVISA JOKANOVIC

Slavisa Jokanovic has been rather unfortunate during his career, and he now finds himself looking for a job once again.

Following early-career spells in Thailand and Spain, he arrived at Watford in 2014/15 as one of the earlier managers in their current regimes.

And he very much got the ball rolling for the Hornets, securing them promotion in his first season in charge.However, to everyone’s amazement, he was sent on his way at the end of that season, despite returning Watford to the promised land.

He then went out to Israel for a short spell before Fulham came calling, and he quickly returned to English football.

He arrived half-way through a season at Craven Cottage and after steering them clear of the drop, he turned his attention to setting up another promotion season.

Last season, Fulham set the Championship alight with their progressive brand of football, though they couldn’t quite catch Wolves and Cardiff, missing out on the top two on the final day.

However, they did win promotion via the play-offs, and this time Jokanovic did get a crack at the Premier League.

He was given over £100 million to spend on his Premier League campaign, but that only gave the London club a stick to beat him with.

Things didn’t go to plan and with Fulham in the relegation zone, Jokanovic was sacked as early as November, and quickly replaced by Claudio Ranieri.

With two promotions from the Championship in two-and-a-half seasons in charge, Jokanovic is clearly a gifted manager, particularly at Championship level. Now he just needs a club that will back him and have patience.

Huddersfield fit that mould perfectly.With his brand of football, this could be a match made in heaven, but Jokanovic isn’t currently top of the Terriers’ list, and that’s why he’s at long odds to be appointed.
