David Wagner ‘steps down’ from Huddersfield role with club bottom of Premier League table

The club have failed to win a Premier League game since the end of November

David Wagner has stepped down from his role as Huddersfield manager, with the club rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table.

The Terriers have won just twice all season and currently boast 11 points from their 22 games, leaving them a massive eight points from safety.

His final game in charge was their stalemate with Cardiff at the weekend, leaving the club without a win in their last 10 matches in all competitions.

Wagner, who joined the west Yorkshire side in 2015 after a stint as Borussia Dortmund’s reserve team manager, oversaw their unlikely promotion from the Championship in 2017. He then kept them in the top tier last season, finishing 16th.

Predictably, relegation-Houdini Sam Allardyce is the bookies early favourite to take over at the club, followed by the sardine-loving Carlos Carvalhal and David Moyes.

In the meantime, coach Mark Hudson will take charge of their next league game, which happens to be against champions Man City on Sunday.
