Favourites for Huddersfield Town manager

After David Wagner left Huddersfield Town yesterday evening, we’ve taken a look at who are favourites for the job at the John Smith’s Stadium.

He leaves the club after detailed discussions with the Board of Directors, with both parties agreeing this is the correct move for the future of the club.

Along with thanking him for the memories and achievements, Dean Hoyle said, “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.

“We discussed making that change immediately, but he also made it clear that he would give his all for the rest of this season before departing in the summer if we preferred. After a long discussion we all felt that David staying at the Club until the end of the season was best, but we’ve kept discussions open and we all now feel that the time is right to part ways.

“It’s a very sad day, but now we have to look to the future; that’s what football and our immediate situation demands.

“I’ve asked Mark Hudson to take this weekend’s Premier League game against Manchester City. He knows how to play our game at its best and he knows the squad, so he’s perfectly placed to do so. Along with the technical staff, we’ll give him all the support we can ahead of the game.”

Take a look at who are the top six favourites for the job below and on the next page.



Alan Pardew has been out of a job since he was sacked by West Brom last year.

He lasted just four months at the club – at the time, they had gone 10 games without a win, were on a run of eight successive defeats and were bottom of the Premier League.

He has also managed Crystal Palace, Newcastle United, Southampton, Charlton Athletic, West Ham United and Reading.

Carlos Carvalhal has been out of a job since the end of last season when he left Swansea City.

It’s reported that he’s turned down plenty of offers from other clubs around the world because he wanted to work in England again.

Was most recently linked with the Nottingham Forest job, however that has been given to Martin O’Neill.

David Moyes was most recently manager of West Ham United, he came in mid-season and kept them up with two games left.

He hasn’t got the best record recently, having a 29% win ration at the Hammers and won eight games out of 43 with Sunderland.

That was his first relegation and it’s unlikely he’ll want another.
