Juninho Bacuna sends message to Huddersfield Town fans as Rangers transfer is sealed



Juninho Bacuna completed his move to Steven Gerrard’s Rangers on Thursday, leaving Huddersfield Town after three impressive seasons, he gave his appreciation for the Terriers’ support on Instagram.

The 24-year-old scored 12 and assisted nine times in his spell at the John Smith’s Stadium, a difficult three year period for the club following their relegation from the Premier League and then back to back bottom seven finishes.

His performances were enough to catch the eye of the Scottish Premier League champions where he will have the chance to play European football.

Bacuna wrote: “Firstly I would like to thank! Huddersfield Town for the 3 amazing years.

“As a young player just 20 moving from Holland/Groningen to England was a new challenge for me. I had to adapt to the environment and language and new culture.

“Everyone at the club welcomed me with open arms including the fans and believed in me and gave me a platform to show my true potential. The growth I have experienced at this club over the years has made me who I am today. It’s been a true privilege to share the pitch with every player. Will all be cherished.

“Final goodbye as it’s time for me to move on to my next chapter in my career. I want to thank the managers, teammates coaches and staff! And most importantly the fans!”

The Terriers have a fair bit of depth in wide areas, defensively has been where the more poignant questions have been asked in recent years, maybe Carlos Corberan will be granted the tools to bolster his rearguard in the wake of Bacuna’s transfer.

The Verdict

It is a shame to lose a player with bags of attacking flair like Bacuna however, as mentioned Town are well stocked going forward and therefore should be able to cope with his loss.

Sorba Thomas could be a key man in this his first full season at Championship level, with Aaron Rowe, Rolando Aarons and Isaac Mbenza completing the quartet, there should be enough quality to make Huddersfield competitive this term.

Their fragilities have already been exposed in the opening three matches particularly the 5-1 hammering by Fulham, an experienced defensive midfielder to take some of the burden off of Jonathan Hogg’s shoulders could be a shrewd addition.
