Huddersfield eye new boss as Wagner departs

Premier League strugglers Huddersfield Town have confirmed the departure of their manager David Wagner.

The bottom-of-the-table outfit are some eight points adrift of safety, but the German-born former American international has now left The Terriers by mutual consent.

Wagner’s departure comes just over four years after he took control and 18-months after he led them to a memorable promotion to the Premier League.

However, the two have now decided to part company – after Wagner informed the club he would be looking to leave at the end of the season.

A club statement said: “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.”

BetVictor’s Michael Triffitt commented: “David Wagner has left Huddersfield this evening. Mark Hudson takes charge for this weekend’s game with champions Manchester City and is 5/1 to be appointed permanently.

“Former Swansea and Sheffield Wednesday manager Carlos Carvalhal was well touted for the Nottingham Forest vacancy and is 4/1 favourite to make the move to the West Yorkshire outfit but favourite is Sam Allardyce at 9/4.”
