The Huddersfield manager admits to wondering if promotion was the right moment to walk away but is now focused on the Terriers’ first season in the top tier for 45 years
Huddersfield Town’s preparations for their first top-flight campaign in 45 years got the ideal boost on Friday when the manager who led them to the Premier League, David Wagner, pledged his future to the club despite receiving more lucrative offers.
The German signed a contract extension that should keep him at the club until 2019. The Huddersfield chairman, Dean Hoyle, vowed not to sack him even if they are relegated next season. “Yes, he stays,” Hoyle said. “Unless he buggers off.”
