Wagner leaves Huddersfield by ‘mutual consent’ – club


London (AFP) – Huddersfield manager David Wagner has left the club by “mutual consent”, the struggling Premier League side announced on Monday.

“The 47-year-old leaves Town after detailed discussions with the board of directors, with both parties agreeing this is the correct move for the future of the club,” Huddersfield said in a statement on their website.

“I’d like to begin by thanking David for all he has achieved at Huddersfield Town over the last three-and-a-half years,” said chairman Dean Hoyle.

“Under his stewardship, we’ve achieved things on the football pitch that surpass anything in modern memory and that have gone well beyond my wildest expectations as chairman and as a fan.”

After finishing 16th of 20 in the Premier League last year Huddersfield are currently bottom of the top flight with just two wins all season.

    This is surprising. Just because a team struggles does not automatically fodder to get fired. Huddersfield is punching above their own weight in the premier league. I think Wagner staying could get them back up next season.

    He will no doubt find employment again. Its just a question of where and when. I think the first MLS team that fires their coach will make Wagner a top candidate, although they will have to compete with English and German 2nd division clubs for him.
