There’s news from Germany about Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner… and for once it doesn’t involve a Bundesliga team trying to snatch him away.
Earlier this week we covered claims that Stuttgart were keen on Wagner to replace Nico Kovac, who is off to the big job at Bayern Munich this summer.
Wagner was described as one of two candidates for Stuttgart, with the other unnamed, and Bild reported there’s a rather low sounding €3m exit clause in the Huddersfield manager’s contract.
Now, there’s brighter news. The same German newspaper reports Wagner will extend his Huddersfield Town contract ‘in the next few days’.
One reason behind that is Wagner will be getting support from Olaf Rebbe, who Bild say will arrive at Huddersfield as Director of Sport.
Rebbe has previously fulfilled a similar role for Wolfsburg.
As for Rebbe’s time at the German club, Bild say: ‘At Wolfsburg Rebbe replaced Klaus Allofs in January 2017. He was fired at the end of April for a lack of athletic development. In his 16-month tenure, he went through three coaches and invested €112m in the squad.’
