Newly appointed Huddersfield Town manager, Danny Cowley, has stated that he didn’t want to take the ‘safe option’ after he left Lincoln City for the Terriers.
Cowley had been in charge of two promotions during his time at the Imps and also won the EFL Trophy as he enjoyed a successful period at the club.
He now takes charge of the Terriers who have failed to pick up a win so far this season and sit in the relegation zone of the Championship after just six games of the new campaign.
Cowley will be hoping to get off to a fast start when his new side take on Yorkshire rivals, Sheffield Wednesday, this weekend. The Owls will also have a new man in the dugout after appointing Garry Monk on Friday afternoon.
The new Huddersfield boss clearly wanted to branch out, and he spoke of his ambition to face adversity in a higher division.
Speaking in his first press conference as Huddersfield manager, Cowley said: “The safer option would’ve been to stay at Lincoln, a club that we love, but we want to make the right decisions and test ourselves.
“I want that moment when your backs are against the wall and you’re facing adversity; that’s really living.”
Cowley is right in the fact that he wants to test himself, he’s not hiding away from the fact that it will be tough in a higher division and there will be more challenges but he wants to hit them head on.
That’s exciting if you’re a Huddersfield supporter as they need someone right now who doesn’t shy away from the current troubles that they’re in.
He’s a motivator, and if he continues to show this type of attitude then he is only going to be a success with these players and supporters.
