Plymouth Argyle boss Steven Schumacher is a top managerial target for Huddersfield Town, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.
The Lowdown: Schumacher rumours
Dean Hoyle is on the hunt for a new man in charge at The John Smith’s Stadium after parting ways with Danny Schofield on Wednesday.
Yorkshire Live reporter Danny Bloomer mooted a ‘left-field appointment’ for Schumacher shortly after the news broke regarding Schofield, with the 38-year-old impressing in his first senior role at Home Park.
The Latest: O’Rourke’s update
Football Insider journalist O’Rourke provided a big update on Huddersfield’s search for a new manager on Thursday morning.
He stated that Schumacher is actually now a ‘top contender’ and is ‘regarded as one of the best young coaches in the country’.
Schumacher at Huddersfield?
Yes, get him in!
No, look elsewhere!
The Verdict: One to watch
Former Town boss David Wagner is another name who has been mentioned, however, he has struggled since leaving the club in short stints with Schalke and Young Boys.
Schumacher doesn’t have the experience compared to Wagner, but he has certainly made his mark in the South West with Argyle after stepping up from assistant manager when Ryan Lowe left for Preston.
Wagner wasn’t exactly an experienced name when he arrived back in 2015, so the club could reap the rewards in the long run if they managed to bring in Schumacher to replace Schofield.
