Huddersfield boss Siewert proud of players for Man Utd draw

Huddersfield Town boss Jan Siewert was proud of his players after their 1-1 draw with Manchester United.

Siewert was delighted with the performances of his players as Isaac Mbenza's second half strike earned his side the draw.

The manager said, “We wanted to give something back, we knew it was our last home game and I think everybody was running for him.

“I told the lads today that we just have to leave our hearts on the pitch.

“It's been a big season for us, which unfortunately ended up in the relegation, but we wanted to give something back to the supporters who went with us for the whole time."

Town winger Mbenza grabbed his first goal for the Club during this afternoon's game and Siewert acknowledged the improvement that the Belgian has made in recent games.

“He's improving and obviously after his long injury, and he had a great game today.

“I think he understood that he's a player which I like in the way he's playing and attacking.

“He has some thrills and I think that we haven't seen all of him yet and I'm excited to develop him more and more."
