LONDON, Aug. 17 (XINHUA) -- Jan Siewert has been fired as boss of English Championship side Huddersfield Town, following his side's 2-1 loss to Fulham at home.

The 37-year-old German joined the West Yorkshire club last season after former coach David Wagner left by mutual consent with the club languishing at the foot of the Premier League table in January.

During his time at the John Smith's Stadium, he only managed one victory from 19 games and failed to prevent his team from relegation from England's top flight last season. His single victory was a 1-0 victory at home against Wolves, while the club was relegated by March.

Terriers' chairman Phil Hodgkinson said: "Last night's decision was not one that I nor the board took lightly, but I believe it is one that had to be made.

"Jan walked into a very difficult situation in January; something that we were all aware and mindful of. However, I have seen no evidence of the impact on our performances that I was expecting following a full pre-season.

"Jan is a fantastic man and he's worked tirelessly for this club during his time here, but unfortunately it has not worked. I believe he is a good coach and I sincerely hope he will be successful in the future.

"I believe our players are better than we have seen so far this season. We will work to appoint a new head coach who can get the best from them and bring an identity back to our performances."

Huddersfield is yet to claim a win this season after three losses and a draw. Huddersfield was dumped out of the league cup midweek by League One side Lincoln City. Enditem
