Huddersfield boss Siewert admits they'll lose their top players

Huddersfield boss Jan Siewert admits they'll lose their top players after relegation was confirmed on Saturday.

Defeat at Crystal Palace condemned the Terriers to their fate.

Siewert admits it is inevitable that players will look to leave.

"It will be normal," Siewert said. "We have to respect that and then trust the ones who will stay."

With seven Premier League games left to play, Siewert is adamant he will not use the remainder of the season merely to blood academy prospects ahead of Huddersfield's return to the Championship.

"I won't change my mentality as a manager. I always bring a team to win games."

This will affect his selections, Siewert said. "If there is a young player who is part of that, of course. But it's like having a look at each one and seeing if there is a possibility to win the game."
