Huddersfield Town announced on Monday they have parted company with head coach David Wagner by mutual consent, with the club languishing at the bottom of the Premier League.

Wagner, 47, will be replaced by Mark Hudson, who will take charge of the club’s next league game against Manchester City on Sunday.

Huddersfield chairman Dean Hoyle said in a statement that Wagner, who joined the club in November 2015, needed a break from the “rigours of football management”.

“Under David’s management, we took this Club to the highest position it has held in almost 50 years and created memories that will last forever,” the statement read.

“His achievements will rightly put him up there in Huddersfield Town history alongside great names like Herbert Chapman and Mick Buxton; legendary managers who changed the face of this Club.

“As I had said previously, I had no intention of sacking David this season. Subsequently, David – being the great man he is – came to us and made it clear that he needs a break from the rigours of football management.”

In 2017, Wagner guided the northern club into the English top flight for the first time since 1972 and kept Huddersfield in the Premier League last season.

Huddersfield has lost 15 of their 22 league games this season, winning just twice. (ESPN)
