Charlie Adam weighs in on Huddersfield appointment and tells supporters what to expect

Charlie Adam has revealed he is “delighted” to see Mark Fotheringham get “his opportunity as a number one” after the Scot was appointed the new Huddersfield Town head coach.

The Championship club have been searching for a replacement for Danny Schofield since his sacking earlier this month and confirmed yesterday that Fotheringham had been named the new Terriers boss.

The 36-year-old, who left his role as Felix Magath’s assistant at Bundesliga club Hertha Berlin to move to the John Smith’s Stadium, faces a stern test as he looks to turn things around after Huddersfield’s poor start to the season.

It appears he’ll have people pulling for him outside of just that part of West Yorkshire as Adam, who played youth football in Dundee at the same time as Fotheringham, has thrown his support behind the new manager.

Asked what Fotheringham can bring to the Terriers, Adam suggested he was a manager “hungry, positive, ruthless, and driven to be successful”.

The new manager’s first game in charge will come against Reading at the Select Car Leasing Stadium on Saturday.

A win against the Royals could see the 23rd-placed Terriers climb out of the bottom three – should results elsewhere go their way.

TERENCE KONGOLO

YES NO

The Verdict

Fans will love to see Adam throwing his support behind Fotheringham while his insight into his character will be of interest to them as well.

The 36-year-old faces a tough test as he looks to turn fortunes around at the Yorkshire club but there is certainly some quality in his new squad.

It’s something of a risk but you have to credit the Terriers for not going for a safe appointment and looking to be ambitious by turning to the young coach.

Whether we could see Adam, who retired from playing earlier this year himself, in a role at Huddersfield at some point in the future remains to be seen.
