Huddersfield Town midfielder Jack Rudoni can become a Terriers 'legend' insists Darren Moore

AT just 22, Jack Rudoni's star is firmly in the ascendant at Huddersfield Town.

After marking himself out as a bright young thing at previous club AFC Wimbledon, the midfielder is starting to make an impression at Championship level and it is being duly noted by his manager Darren Moore.

Moore's predecessor Neil Warnock regularly talked up the Surrey-born player, while adding a caveat about him addressing a lack of goals to match his ability.

Rudoni's strike in Saturday's 2-1 home victory over QPR provided more evidence that he is doing something about that.

It took his season's tally to three already, one more than he managed in the whole of his first season in West Yorkshire following his move in the summer of 2022.

Rudoni's creative influence in terms of assists and ability to do the dirty side of the game is also something that he not been lost upon Moore in his early weeks at the club either.

Never one to dispense with individual praise wantonly, the fact that the Terriers chief has chosen to speak already about the credentials of Rudoni in gushing terms carries weight.

Moore said: "He looks like he could be a legend for Huddersfield Town going forward in terms of where he is at and what he is doing.

"You see his attributes as a midfield player. He runs and dribbles with the ball well and passes it well and his game intelligence and understanding is really good.

"He has also definitely got a goal in him and in both aspects of the game, he is not afraid to offer the team in terms of offensive options alongside the ‘nitty-gritty’ side of the game and his defensive work.

"Jack is a player I have known from coming up against him and seeing his game develop. He made the switch in terms of coming to Huddersfield, which was the right move for him and you can see now that he has gradually stepped up to the level.

"He was exceptional on Saturday. Long may it continue and we continue to work and develop him and improve his game further."
