Since arriving at the John Smiths Stadium and taking charge of Huddersfield Town, David Wagner has turned the Terriers into something of a force in the Sky Bet Championship.
However, with the improvement that Wagner has instilled into the Huddersfield Town side, there comes the danger that his efforts will draw attention elsewhere. That is the case according to Alan Nixon writing in today’s Sun.
Wagner’s time at Huddersfield has seen him manage the side for 75 games, achieving an admirable 1.53 points per game. But this season has seen him turn the once under-performing Terriers into a side that is only six points behind Brighton and the last of the automatic promotion slots in the Sky Bet Championship.
Before arriving at Huddersfield, American-German Wagner’s only coaching experience was in Germany including 52 games in charge of the Hoffenheim U-17/U-19 sides and 164 games in charge of Borussia Dortmund B, when current Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was in charge of the first team there.
It is by a collaboration of agents working for Wagner in both Germany and the UK that the Huddersfield manager is becoming, according to Nixon, “a wanted man.” Nixon goes on to say that the two sets of agents are working together on Wagner’s next move, with feelers being put out.
According to Nixon, “the two branches of the firm are working on his next move, either to the Bundesliga or the Premier League.”
