Huddersfield Town Brilliantly Use Martin From Wakefield To Announce New Manager
Huddersfield Town haven't exactly entertained the masses with their football this season but they've certainly caused a lot of chuckles with the announcement of their new manager.
It's not been an easy season for Huddersfield Town with the Yorkshire club currently sitting bottom of the Premier League, having won just two games in the league from their opening 23 games.
Recently things got worse for the Terriers as manager David Wagner, who got them promoted from the Championship and kept them in the Premier League last season, and the club parted ways just a week ago.
That obviously began the search for a new manager, something that they hadn't completed by the weekend when they had the tough test of playing against Premier League champions Manchester City.
Unsurprisingly the side without a manager lost 3-0 but the best part of the game was Sky Sports thinking they'd spotted soon to be manager Jan Siewert, went to interview him, and found it was just some bloke called Martin.
So finally the Premier League side were ready to announce their new manager on Monday afternoon, a week after Wagner left, and of course they had to use Martin to help them with the news:

The 36-year-old joins The Terriers from @BVB II, where he held the position of Head Coach, signing a contract running until the summer of 2021.

Huddersfield Town Chairman Dean Hoyle said, "I'd like to begin by officially welcoming Jan to Huddersfield Town. I'm tremendously excited about working with him as our new Head Coach.
"Let me start by addressing the obvious. We enjoyed tremendous success under our previous Head Coach, David Wagner, and we've subsequently appointed a new Head Coach that bears many similarities to him; a young, aspirational German from Borussia Dortmund II.
"However, that does a disservice to Jan, who is his own man. There is much more to this appointment than that."
The new man has a lot to do with the club still 10 points from safety and looking a long way off staying in the Premier League.
