Huddersfield Town recently announced that they had appointed Danny Cowley as their new manager, with the former Lincoln City boss succeeding Jan Siewert who was dismissed earlier this year.
The Terriers have struggled to adapt to life back in the Championship, and currently occupy one of the relegation places after six games of this year’s campaign.
Speaking exclusively to Football League World’s Chief Editor Sam Rourke, talkSPORT pundit Chris Iwelumo issued his thoughts on Cowley’s appointment at Huddersfield.
“I think it is a good appointment. I think the Cowley brothers have really thought about it. They’ve made their names being linked with a lot of jobs. This is a fantastic opportunity as Huddersfield have just come down from the Premier League, so the foundations and infrastructure are all there.
The former Scotland international is keen to see the newly-appointed boss get off to a winning start, and felt as though he will bring an identity to Huddersfield in the future.
“The Cowley brothers will definitely bring their identity to the club, which I think is one of their strong points. What they’ve done at Lincoln, coming up through the leagues with promotions, they’ve left the club with a real identity.
“The best brand of football is winning, I don’t care if it’s long ball or possession-based, as long as you’re winning games, that’s what puts the smiles on fans’ faces.
Iwelumo went on to insist that the Cowley brothers need to be given time with the Terriers, and labelled their appointment as ‘interesting, but exciting’.
“They have to have a little bit of luck along the way, but they have to be given time to make changes and implement their style. It’s an outstanding appointment for both parties.
“For the club, they’ve brought in two strong characters who will take the club by the scruff of the neck and say ‘this is what Huddersfield’s about’ because they did that at Lincoln.
“For the Cowley brothers, they’re looking at the club as a family club, and will know they’re going to get support and will be given time to do what they do. It’s an interesting one, but an exciting one.”
