Speaking to Examiner Live, Huddersfield Town manager Danny Cowley has revealed why he decided to make the move to the Championship side, leaving Lincoln City last month to join the club.

The departure of both Danny and Nicky Cowley at Lincoln City left a fair few people surprised, especially given that they left to join Huddersfield Town – a club that was sitting in the relegation zone of the Championship table and without a win.

The job is by no means an easy one and arguably, it would have been way easier to remain with Lincoln. However, the Cowley’s have made a positive impact with the club and helped Huddersfield go unbeaten in their last three, winning their last two games.

Now, Danny Cowley has revealed that the main reason they opted to join the club was for the supporters, saying that he wants to give the fans a team they can be proud of after their “unconditional” support in the Premier League. He said:

“Nicky, myself and the staff will always work relentlessly hard and you have my word we will be living every second of it. We chose this club because of the supporters.

“They supported the club so unconditionally through those Premier League years and we know they deserve a team they can be proud of.

“Football clubs are football clubs, they are bricks and mortar, but it’s the sense of belonging that counts – it is for the people. We want them to be able to come here, safe and secure, to enjoy their football and be really proud to be a part of something.”
