David Wagner has left Huddersfield Town by mutual consent.
The Terriers are currently at the bottom of the table in the Premier League and are in for a relegation battle.
Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner has left the side on mutual consent. The German gaffer saw his side win only two matches this season as they go to the bottom of the Premier League table and are in for a relegation battle.
Speaking to the club’s official website, chairman Dean Hoyle said, “I’d like to begin by thanking David for all he has achieved at Huddersfield Town over the last three-and-a-half years. 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. Under David’s management, we took this Club to the highest position it has held in almost 50 years and created memories that will last forever.”
He added, “As I had said previously, I had no intention of sacking David this season. Subsequently David – being the great man he is – came to us and made it clear that he needs a break from the rigours of football management. I know the term ‘mutual consent’ is often a byword for the manager being sacked in professional football, but this is a truly joint decision. David has a real, genuine love for this Club and, like me, his foremost concern in our talks has been to establish what is best for Huddersfield Town. I cannot thank David enough for what he has achieved. Along with his family, he will always be a friend to me and Huddersfield Town.”
