3. David Wagner (6/1)

Borussia Dortmund and Juergen Klopp’s former assistant manager has shown an impressive career so far in English football.

The German has created a side at Huddersfield which is competitive and saw the Yorkshire side finish in 5th spot, accumulating a total of 81 points, scoring almost 60 goals.

The Terriers had an emphatic start to the season, hovering around the top three for the majority of it, but a dip in form in the closing stages saw them capitulate, and if it was not for the sustained points collection in the first half, they could have seen themselves fall out of the playoffs.

Huddersfield Town are set to play Sheffield Wednesday in the semi-final leg, which will be a challenging task for Wagner, especially with the dip in form, he will be required to inspire and reinvigorate his side to replicate a performance in the first-half of the season, rather than one which has seen them fall short in the last few weeks.

Former Huddersfield Town Director of Football, Stuart Webber, is understood to be largely responsible for persuading the former Borussia Dortmund coach to join the Yorkshire outfit. In March, Webber announced that he would be leaving Kirklees stadium to join the Canaries.

 

If Huddersfield Town fails to get promoted to the Premier League this season, Webber may try to persuade Wagner to join Norwich City, so the two can pair up once again, but this time build and mount a success in East Anglia.
