Danny Cowley claims Huddersfield represents the”best opportunity” for his next step in direction and insists that the”easy” option would have been to stay in Lincoln.
Even the 40-year-old signed up a bargain together with his brother along with manager Nicky in the John Smith’s Stadium to replace head coach Jan Siewert in the struggling Championship club on Monday.
Cowley led Lincoln into two promotions in the last few years and will bid to detain Huddersfield’s poor form, together with the Terriers second from bottom in the league following one point from six matches.
“You look at the present status in the Championship and respect it has been a very tough time for the football club but that actually excites me since we like a struggle,” said Cowley.
“We always felt the next move would have to be the ideal opportunity and we view this really is the ideal prospect. We feel we can add value .
“The chance to function as managers instead of head coach is very important to us since that is how we’ve always functioned. It’s always about building.”
Huddersfield, who have been relegated from the Premier League last year, have not won 17 games in all competitions and have been conquered by Lincoln in Carabao Cup last month.
The chance turned down concerning the vacancy but later took the job because of the assurance that the brothers could have a hands-on part in shaping the development of the club.
“I look at the job in front of us and can’t wait to begin,” Cowley added.
“We want to be challenged. I need to live life. The choice could have been to remain at Lincoln, a club felt a relationship with and adored.
“It would have been a great deal simpler to remain but we are not interested in easy choices. We want to test ourselves.”
Cowley will start his Huddersfield tenure against Sheffield Wednesday, who’ll possess Gary Monk in the dugout on Sunday, for the first time – live on Sky Sports.
“The short term aims would be to discover a way to play winning football but for us it’s to become a long-term project,” Cowley said.
“Winning on Saturday is not sufficient for me. It is about winning winning. We are clear about the vision for Huddersfield Town. We know where we want to go.”
Cowley added that he along with his brother very much come as a set, with worked together at Concord and Braintree before Lincoln.
“We are used to working together,” he explained. “We have lived our lives into each others’ pockets. We are unique characters but are motivated about the procedures. Above all we have trust.”
