Jan Siewert Proud of Huddersfield Striker Steve Mounie After Late Winner Sinks Wolves

Huddersfield manager Jan Siewert was understandably delighted after his side grabbed a dramatic late goal to beat Wolves at the John Smith's Stadium.

The Terriers had gone 14 games without a Premier League victory, but were rewarded for a fine performance by a late Steve Mounie goal - completing a league double over Wolves, whilst handing Siewert his first win as Huddersfield boss.

After the game, Siewert revealed how proud he was of his players performances, highlighting Mounie for praise in particular.

“I’m so proud of Steve Mounié because as a striker you need that feeling of scoring and he’ll really enjoy that tonight," Siewert said, as quoted by the ​club's official website.

“The players won on the pitch tonight, they showed that we will fight to the end.  I really believed that the goal would come and in the end it did.


“Since I arrived here the fans have supported me and it’s incredible how brilliant they are. It’s not just a squad and the staff, it’s all of us and the supporters deserved that tonight.”

The Huddersfield boss remains adamant that his team will continue fighting for their Premier League games until it is mathematically impossible to stay up, also stating that he had no regrets about taking over from David Wagner.

"I told you right from the beginning. I know it won't be easy but we keep on fighting," Siewert added, when speaking to Match of the Day.

"You can calculate the number of games. There is still a chance. It would be good. I would enjoy that.

"I never thought that. I know my players. I have really enjoyed working with them. It is more how do I get them in lucky moments. Today we found some solutions and I am so proud."

Siewert will hope the revival continues on Saturday when his side make the long trip south to face ​Brighton at the Amex Stadium.
