Huddersfield have sacked boss Jan Siewert following their 2-1 defeat by Fulham.

The 36-year-old German managed just one victory from his 19 games in charge.

Siewert took over in January after David Wagner left the club but could not prevent their relegation from the Premier League - and a poor start to this season has cost him his job.

Siewert's only win was a 1-0 victory over Wolves in his fifth game at the helm as Huddersfield finished bottom, relegated by March.

A club statement read: "Huddersfield Town has this evening terminated the contract of head coach Jan Siewert with immediate effect.

"Siewert joined the club from Borussia Dortmund in January 2019 in the club's ultimately unsuccessful fight against relegation from the Premier League and led the team in the first four competitive games of the new season, with his final game in charge being the Sky Bet Championship defeat to Fulham on Friday evening.

"No further comment will be made this evening."

Former Republic of Ireland women's national team coach Colin Bell was appointed as Siewert's assistant manager in late June.
