Huddersfield part company with Wagner: Five key things to know...

Coach Mark Hudson will take charge of the next league game against champions Manchester City on Sunday.

The 47-year-old leaves with the Terriers eight points adrift of safety at the bottom of the Premier League having won just two of their 22 league games so far this season.

"Under David's management, we took this Club to the highest position it has held in nearly 50 years and created memories that will last forever".

David Wagner may feel that Huddersfield Town are all but down but Jonas Lossl, his goalkeeper, insists that a revival can still be achieved.

"There are four people in black and you have to ask them what was going on.I spoke to the linesman during the match and he said 'the first incident was not a foul and the second I don't know', but I don't know what he means". 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.

Huddersfield banked at least £100m from staying in the top flight last season and have spent big to try and boost Wagner's chances of avoiding relegation.

"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".

"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".

Sam Allardyce has emerged as the new favourite to replace under-pressure Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner.

Wagner held talks over his future with the board of directors where it was agreed stepping down was "the correct move for the future of the club".

The low quality Premier League affair failed to produce many moments of interest, but the one notable incident of the game saw referee Lee Mason point to the penalty spot after Joe Bennett seemed to bring down Florent Hadergjonaj, only to reverse his decision after consulting with his assistant Stuart Burt.

There is rarely a good time for a manager to leave a club during a season.
