Huddersfield Town have announced that their match against Stoke City in the Championship on Wednesday evening will be Neil Warnock’s final game in charge of The Terriers.
The CEO of the club, Jake Edwards, has said that the club are ‘ready to make a longer-term managerial appointment’. This follows suggestions that Warnock’s decision was not entirely his own and that can also be shown by the fact Warnock has said ‘Jake and I always said that when the time came he was going to be straight up with me about it’.
The 74 year-old former Sheffield United manager came out of retirement, once again, to lead the Yorkshire club to safety in February and then decided to stay on over the summer, signing a one-year deal.
Huddersfield began the 2023/24 Championship season by collecting just one point from their opening four matches against Plymouth, Leicester, Middlesbrough and Norwich. They were also beaten by ‘Boro in the first round of the EFL Cup.
However, their 2-0 win at home to Rotherham at the weekend made it back-to-back victories either side of the international break, following a last gasp 2-1 win at The Hawthorns against West Brom a couple of weeks ago.
