Huddersfield Town next manager after Jan Siewert

Odd unit: EU | UK | US

On 16 August 2019, after one win during 19 games in charge, Jan Siewert was sacked. Huddersfield Town former head coach Jan Siewert was born in 1982 in Koblenz, Germany.

As a player, Siewert had only a very short career. For four years, from the age of 19 to 26, he played Tus Mayen - Mayen is a provincial club - and he never made it as a fully-fledged professional. Siewert played a holding role in Mayen's midfield, a position which required him to read the game and interpret its rhythm, transferable skills which have, thus far, served him well in his young managerial career.

A product of the German football machine, one which produces so many talented professionals, in terms of both players and coaches, Siewert embarked on the most recent stage of his career by becoming involved in the national side's youth setup. As an assistant manager, Siewert oversaw a talented young under 17s Germany team which, under Siewert's guidance, reached the final of the u17 Euro 2015 Championships in Bulgaria. However, Siewert's Germany were eventually overcome 4-1 in the final by France. Siewert also managed the under 18s side for a number of friendlies, but never lead them in a major tournament.

Through his diligent work with Germany's youth, Siewert earned himself the job offer he received from Rot-Weiss Essen, which he duly accepted. Rot-Weiss Essen are a club best in North Rhine-Westphalia and were at the time, and indeed still are, based in the fourth tier of the German football league system. In 2015, when Siewert took the reins at Rot-Weiss Essen, the club was an arguably overachieving mid-table team, Siewert was able to keep them away from the drop zone for just short of a year. But, in April 2016, he was relieved of his duties with the club after they came perilously close to relegation to the fifth tier.

Despite this blot on his managerial CV, Siewert was out of work for less than a year before he re-entered the coaching world. His destination would be Vfl Bochum, a side who played football in the 2.Bundesliga. Siewert held a number of roles in his time with the club. Having seen Siewert's previous experience with young players, the Vfl board placed him in charge of the under 19 team. Gradually, however, Siewert would ascend the coaching ladder, leading him to eventually becoming the assistant manager.

After this rewarding spell at senior level, Siewert would return to youth coaching. He was offered a contract to become manager of Borussia Dortmund's prestigious second team - the one which has churned out countless world-class players in the past, Mario Goetze, Matts Hummels and Marco Rues to name but a few. It was in Dortmund where Siewert's career really began to gain traction. The team, which operates both Germany's lower and provincial leagues, maintained the high standards they had set for themselves under previous managerial incumbents' reins.

Siewert managed Dortmund II for 18 months during which he took charge of nearly 60 matches. While still managing the Dortmund side, rumours began to circulate linking Siewert to the Yorkshire club Huddersfield Town. Huddersfield were, to put it lightly, struggling in the Premier League. Although they had survived relegation against the odds the previous season, following their promotion from the Championship on a shoestring budget, Huddersfield were in a dire position in January 2019. The previous manager, David Wagner, who was, coincidentally, also the manager of Dortmund II before leaving to manage Huddersfield, believed he had taken the club as far as he could - he parted ways with them on amicable terms. Siewert was brought in know that realistically, Huddersfield had little chance of Premier League survival. His brief was instead to begin building a team which could compete in the second division next season. Siewert was unable to drastically change the state of affairs. Barring a few results, including a terrific victory over Man United as the end of the season approached, things were not looking positive.

Siewert remains in the managerial position at Huddersfield as the 2019/20 Championship season approaches. At the time of writing, the Terriers have managed to maintain the bulk of their squad, including Aaron Mooy who will surely be one of the Championships leading players this season. Huddersfield fans will hope that having had six months to work with his players, Siewert will now be in a position to help them fight for promotion once more.
