Mark Hudson gave little away over Huddersfield Town’s next manager after they lost 3-0 to Manchester City on Sunday.
City were far from their best but still proved too strong for the managerless Terriers at the John Smith’s Stadium, winning with goals from Danilo, Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane.
The game was Huddersfield’s first since the departure of their popular manager David Wagner last Monday.
The defeat was their ninth in 10 games – the other being a draw – and left them 10 points off safety but caretaker manager Hudson was pleased with the players’ efforts.
Hudson said: “It has been a long week, I enjoyed it, especially as the players took on board what I asked and they fought until the last seconds of the game. I said thank you to all the players for what they have given me.”
Borussia Dortmund coach Jan Siewert has been linked with the vacancy but Hudson does not know if an appointment is imminent.
Siewert was not at the game, even though a TV reporter mistook someone in the directors’ box for the German.
Hudson said: “I was asked to take charge this week, leading to Sunday. For this week I will have a few conversations later today or tomorrow and see where we go.”
