Danny Cowley plans on taking break from football after shock Huddersfield sacking over transfer row

July 21, 2020

DANNY COWLEY plans on taking a break from football after his shock sacking by Huddersfield.

The 41-year-old, along with his assistant brother Nicky Cowley, was ruthlessly axed on Sunday by the Terriers.

It came just two days after the pair had confirmed the Yorkshire outfit’s Championship status with a 2-1 win over promotion hopefuls West Brom.

Cowley is gutted not to be able to build on what he had started.

He joined the club when they were 23rd in the table just ten months ago.

But after 13 years of non-stop football management from non-league to England’s second tier, the Londoner now wants a short pause to reflect and recover before returning to the game.

Huddersfield are set to appoint Carlos Corberan, Marcelo Bielsa’s assistant at Leeds, as Cowley’s successor.

SunSport understands that Cowley was axed as owner Phil Hodgkinson wants total control over transfers — but his manager was not willing to work that way.

Insiders claim the Terriers’ owner decided  he was going to dismiss the brothers during the coronavirus lockdown.

A club source said: “Danny and Nicky had an inkling and could have just walked out.

“But they wanted to see it through because so many jobs were at stake if they went down.”

The Cowleys took over from Jan Siewert in September after the club had  one win in seven months.

Despite only having one point from the first nine games, they kept the  club up. 

No Championship team has ever survived from that position.
