EFL pundit, Michael Brown, has stated that Huddersfield’s decision to appoint a manager, as oppose to a head-coach, could affect other roles within the club.
The Terriers appointed Danny Cowley as manager earlier this week which switches it up from the ‘head-coaches’ that they’ve had at the club recently.
Huddersfield have suffered so far this season, picking up just one point from their first six games of the campaign.
The head of operations at the club is David Webb, and Michael Brown has questioned what duties both the manager and Webb will share during Cowley’s time at the Terriers.
Speaking to the EFL podcast, Brown said: “I had ten minutes with Danny Cowley before his side played Everton in the Carabao Cup, he was very open about his team, where he took the club and where he wanted to be as a manager. I was really impressed with him.
“There is a slight interest in the position he has as I’d like to know what David Webb is now doing at Huddersfield. The club has given Cowley the role as manager, not head coach like both Wagner and Siewert, so that surely means he’s heading up things like recruitment. It’s going to be very interesting to see how he and David Webb work together.”
It will be interesting to see how Cowley and Webb work together, and whether there is a certain delegation when it comes to important issues such as recruitment.
Cowley is an impressive outfit, him and his brother, Nicky, have done superbly at Lincoln City and you can only really praise the job that they did at the Imps and hope that they can do the same at Huddersfield.
It’s going to be tough to get the Terriers out of this really torrid time, but Huddersfield have given Cowley the key role to do it after appointing him as manager.
