Huddersfield Town manager Jan Siewert has revealed why out of form striker Steve Mounie was included in his squad to play Leicester City on Saturday.
The Terriers were subjected to a 4-1 humbling by the Foxes in front of a dejected home crowd, with the Benin international making an appearance off the bench during the heavy defeat. Mounie was omitted for the previous weekend's loss at Crystal Palace, a result that confirmed their long-expected relegation to the Championship.
The 24-year-old's absence had left supporters assuming his time at John Smith's Stadium was up, but Siewert denies that is the case.
When questioned about the decision to recall Mounie for the Leicester game, Siewert asserted that people had misinterpreted his selection choices last week.
