Former Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark is aiming for a swift return to Football Club Managment following his dismissal at Huddersfield Town after the 1-0 home defeat to Promotion rivals Sheffield United.
Lee Clark refutes claims from Huddersfield Chairman Dean Hoyle that he was unable to deliver promotion this campaign - and pointed to comments from new manager Simon Grayson to back up these claims.
Clark had the following statement to release:-
'The owner's since gone on record to say he'd lost faith in me getting them back in the top two, but he'd also lost faith in me if it was a play-off final scenario, that we wouldn't win that,'
'Whether I'd be able to handle the pressure?
'I've got to totally disagree with that.'
'What I'd got was a bond between myself and my staff and players that, no matter what was thrown at us, we'd be able to face it head on. I'd always believed the top two was still doable. The results since my departure have proved that.
'Simon Grayson and his staff, his quotes have proved that. They're delighted that they've come to a football club with the players they have and the quality that's there and the infrastructure behind that.
'Ultimately if it ended up in the play-offs I knew that the squad had the capabilities. We'd been there before. We knew what it was all about. We'd experienced it. That would have stood us in good stead. There were no issues as far as I was concerned.'
I can't blame or fault what Lee has to say in all honesty, but we had lost the free flowing football and wins were frustratingly turning into too many draws.
That is what has forced the hand of Dean Hoyle ultimately - I am still shocked to see him go - but it could prove ultimately to be the kick we need to progress this season.
Best of luck to Lee Clark - He certainly did raise the profile of Huddersfield Town during his time here - and he will in my eyes get another job sometime soon in the not too distant future.
