David Wagner Leaves Table Bottom Huddersfield

David Wagner has left Huddersfield Town as manager by mutual consent with the club bottom of the Premier League.

The 47-year-old German took over as Terriers boss in November 2015 and led them to promotion to the Premier League in 2016-17 via the Championship play-offs.

Huddersfield were one of the favourites for relegation last season but Wagner kept them up with a 16th-place finish.

They have struggled this season, with just 11 points from 22 games, and are eight points adrift of safety.

Wagner’s last game in-charge came in Saturday’s goalless draw at fellow relegation candidates Cardiff, when the visitors were denied a late penalty.

He was named Championship Manager of the Year after leading the west Yorkshire side into the top-flight and claimed the Premier League Manager of the Month award in August 2017.

In all, Wagner had a 33.1% win ratio from his 154 games as boss.

Coach Mark Hudson will take charge of the next league game against champions Manchester City on Sunday.
