Clark told the Huddersfield Examiner: "The lads are a great bunch and I have an excellent relationship with them.
"They know at times when I have to tell them things they might not want to hear that I'm saying it with passion and from the heart.
"I never ever tell them lies. I tell them exactly what I'm thinking and then they know exactly where I'm coming from.
"I never hide anything from them, good or bad, and I think they appreciate that."
