David Wagner commits his future to The Terriers
Congratulations to Key Sports client David Wagner and his backroom team of Christoph Bühler and Andrew Hughes, who have all signed new three year deals at Huddersfield Town today, this will see them lead the Terriers until the Summer of 2021.
We were delighted to work with David and his team to secure these great contracts after an amazing debut season in the Premier League.
Under Wagner, Town’s Premier League debut was seen as a huge success, with the Club making a lightning start to the season with back-to-back victories and a draw. After other landmark highs and backed by unprecedented gates at the John Smith’s Stadium, the Terriers eventually secured a second season in the top flight by securing draws at new Champions Manchester City and previous holders Chelsea ahead of the final day of the campaign.
Huddersfield Town Chairman Dean Hoyle commented:
“I’m very happy that we can announce David, Christoph and Andrew’s new contracts today on the back of a superb debut Premier League season.
I understand why David is so talked about and sought-after given the things he has achieved here; he’s a very talented Head Coach and has played a huge role in transforming Huddersfield Town into the Club it is today.”
Back in November 2015, our very own John Morris introduced then little known Wagner, who was then manager of Borussia Dortmund II to Huddersfield Town who were then a struggling Championship club.
He made an immediate impact, dramatically changing the playing philosophy and behind-the-scenes culture as the Club consolidated its status in the Sky Bet Championship in the 2015/16 season.
In his first full season bat the club, a period now known as the ‘Wagner Revolution’, the team lead the way early on in the Championship and that momentum never truly subsided, with the Terriers winning the Play-Off Final at Wembley over Reading ensuring a position in the top flight for the first time in 45 years.
On signing his new deal, David added;
“The decision to extend my stay at this Club was not a difficult one.
“The relationship Christoph, Andy and I have with Dean, the rest of the Board, the staff and the supporters is special. We’ve achieved some incredible things together in two and a half years and now I’m excited about the future”
Congratulations David, Christoph and Andy, continue to Be Exceptional.
