Clark unsure of reasons for Huddersfield sacking

Lee Clark is none the wiser as to why he was sacked as Huddersfield Town manager.

The former Newcastle United, Sunderland and Fulham midfielder was today given his marching orders by the Galpharm Stadium hierarchy despite the Terriers sitting fourth in League One and he is unsure why.

"I am very perplexed as to why I was dismissed as the manager of Huddersfield Town, " read a statement from Clark on the League Managers' Association official website.

"Needless to say I am extremely disappointed and shocked considering that, with just 16 games left, we are in a such great position to compete for automatic promotion.

"We built on last season's momentum following the play-off final by creating history in the Football League record books for consecutive unbeaten games. This was an immense achievement by everybody connected with the club.

"I am massively proud of my record with Huddersfield and I enjoyed a fantastic relationship with the players, coaching staff, supporters and indeed everybody at the club. I now wish them all the very best for the future and hope they will ultimately achieve promotion this season."

There were some suggestions that Clark had been dismissed so he could be available for the vacant Leeds United role but these comments suggest that is not the case.
