Huddersfield Town head of football operations Leigh Bromby has confirmed he has spoken with reported managerial target David Wagner.
The Lowdown: Wagner links
The Terriers are still on the search for Danny Schofield’s successor, with a number of managers linked with the vacant role over recent days.
One of those has been former boss Wagner, with journalist James Nursey revealing that Huddersfield are ‘keen’ on Wagner, although he added that ‘it is not an easy deal to do’.
Wagner is currently without a job after leaving Young Boys back in March, with Bromby now addressing the rumours.
The Latest: Bromby’s comments
In a story relayed by Yorkshire Live on Thursday, Bromby admitted that Wagner hasn’t been offered the job before added that there has been contact.
“I think David is unbelievably well-respected through everyone at the club, particularly myself, particularly Dean, and he’s held in such high regard in terms of what he put in place at the club, and I was lucky to part of that and work with him as academy manager.
“That interest is naturally going to be there. Now, would David take the job? I don’t know. Have I spoken to him about the job? Have I spoken to him before and during this period while I’ve been in this role? Yes, because he’s someone we’re aware of and obviously there’s a lot of interest, he’s been linked with the job, but I haven’t offered him the job.”
Wagner back at Huddersfield?
No, look elsewhere!
The Verdict: Why not…
Wagner had a hugely successful period in charge at The John Smith’s Stadium, taking the club into the Premier League.
His following stints with both Schalke and Young Boys were short-lived, but he could still be a shrewd appointment back where he did his best work.
The 4-4-2 style manager knows Huddersfield inside out and has plenty of experience, so he could be just what the club need at this moment in time, making this one to keep an eye on.
