Huddersfield Town re-appoint Neil Warnock as manager

74-year-old veteran manager Neil Warnock is coming out of retirement to take over at Huddersfield Town for a second time.

Huddersfield are currently 23rd in the Championship, just one point from safety.

Warnock returns almost 30 years after his first stint, during which he led the Terriers to promotion via the third-tier play-offs in 1994-95.

The veteran manager was last at Middlesbrough before announcing his short retirement.

“My first spell at Huddersfield Town had everything; we went to Wembley twice, moved into the new stadium, and really built the club from nothing. It was a special time,” he told the club website.

“I’m coming back to help the club, but also [chairman] Dean Hoyle. I know what he has done behind the scenes and I’ve always had a lot of time for him.

“I’ve looked at the fixtures and we’ve got some fantastic games to come. I want to come back and put smiles on faces.”

Neil Warnock returns to the club on a short-term basis, until the end of the season.
