Neil Warnock named as Huddersfield manager until the end of the season

Huddersfield Town have confirmed the appointment of Neil Warnock as their manager until the end of the season.

The 74-year-old retired last year after 42 years as a boss across 15 different clubs.

Warnock is currently abroad but is expected to be back to take over the reins on Thursday.

He returns to Huddersfield for another stint, having been in charge of the Terriers between 1993 and 1995.

Huddersfield secured promotion to the defunct First Division (now known as the Championship) in 1994 and will hope Warnock can help keep them up this term.

They are second from bottom in the Championship after 30 games. The Terriers have won seven games and lost 16 this term.

They are just a point away from safety, and Warnock will fancy his chances of getting the job done.

Narcis Pelach will remain in interim charge of the west Yorkshire club when they take on Stoke City on Wednesday.

Warnock will be in the dugout for their league game at home against Birmingham City on Saturday.

He last managed a club two years ago, working with Middlesbrough from June 2020 until November 2021.

Warnock helped Cardiff City win promotion to the Premier League at the end of the 2017-18 campaign.

He will likely be retained if he helps the Terriers keep their Championship status, but whether he would want to continue remains to be seen.

The legendary manager has 15 games to rescue Huddersfield’s campaign. It will be intriguing to see how the side fare under him.
