David Wagner writes heartfelt goodbye letter to Huddersfield Town fans
Auf wiedersehen, David
David Wagner has written a heartfelt letter to Huddersfield Town fans after his four year spell at the club was brought to an end on Monday night when he left by mutual consent.
Wagner oversaw the Terriers' fairytale rise from the Championship to the Premier League, and kept them in the top flight against all odds last season.
In a letter published on Huddersfield's website, Wagner said: "As I leave Huddersfield Town, I want to say thank you.
"From the very first day that Christoph and I arrived in Huddersfield in November 2015, you have made us feel like part of your group. Our families and I will always remember this.
"Our children have grown up here for part of their lives and we all now consider ourselves true Huddersfield ‘folk’!
"Together, we have achieved unbelievable things; we made the dream of Premier League football for Huddersfield Town a reality. That only happened because of this incredible togetherness that was unique to this Club and, again, I must thank you, the tremendous supporters of this Club, for making this possible. The bond between the players and the fans is something you had to experience to believe."
"I’d also like to thank every player for their efforts on the pitch; ultimately, they are the ones who had to go out onto the grass and make this possible. They deserve all the credit they received," he continued.
"Thanks also to every member of my technical staff and the staff behind-the-scenes at the Club. We have some superb people at Huddersfield Town who have played big, big roles in making our success possible."
The German concluded his farewell message by saying: "I’m sad to be leaving, but I’m immensely proud of what we’ve achieved at Huddersfield Town. This Club is now in my heart and ultimately, I want what is best for its future."
