‘What I Told My Players Before Manchester United Win’- Huddersfield Manager, Wagner

Hudderfield manager, David Wagner, has described their 2-1 win over Manchester United on Saturday, as one of the proudest moments of his career.

The German watched on as the Terriers stunned United at the John Smith’s Stadium in West Yorkshire.

Goals from Aaron Mooy and Laurent Depoitre put them 2-0 up in the first half, before Marcus Rashford pulled one back late on.

“I said to the players that I wouldn’t expect a result, but that I can believe in a result,” Wagner said.

“That is why it so huge for us. It’s a very proud moment, that we were able to beat Manchester United at home.

“In one game you can have a chance. If there is a chance, try to catch it. Today was our moment because we were at our best and maybe they weren’t. It is one of the proudest moments in my career. It makes me very happy.

“I haven’t thought about why Manchester United weren’t at their best. They have played a lot of games and they had injury problems. It could be they are not at their freshest, but we didn’t think about that.

“If this is our moment, we have to grab it, which is what the players did. Small Huddersfield have beaten Man United and it one of the proudest moments in my managerial career.

“It’s another chapter in the fairytale we started nearly two years ago. It has shown everything is possible in football. Today was our moment. It makes everyone very happy and very proud.”
