Huddersfield head coach David Wagner will discuss the club's future with the board next week and believes he will be an even better manager next season
David Wagner believes he will be an even better manager next season after keeping Huddersfield in the Premier League.
Wagner has enhanced his reputation by ensuring top-flight football for another year at Huddersfield in their first full season in the top division after they drew 1-1 with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Wagner has been linked with a move to other clubs both in England and Europe such as Chelsea and his former club Borussia Dortmund.
“A big part of the quality of a manager is experience and I’m more experienced than I was before,” Wagner said.
Paul Merson delivers his promise and dresses up as Gonzo three months after predicting Huddersfield would be relegated.
“Not only the experience of the Premier League, life experience as well, manager of a football club, managing positive and negative situations as well.
“So for sure, I will improve and I have to improve. I’m anything but ready and for me personally, this experience we have had in the last season will help me to be better in the future.”
The 46-year-old coach has 12 months to run on his current two-year deal he signed last summer and will confirm his commitment next week after a meeting with owner Dean Hoyle.
He added: “This is what we planned six months ago and this is what we have always usually done in the past and this is what we do in the next week.
“I think like always we will have to discuss a lot of things, not only transfers but as well as the facilities. This club is ambitious and has space to improve, we like to improve.
“Now is the time to discuss the next steps and there are a lot of steps to go through, this will be what the discussion is all about.
“What we have done in the past, we have shown you should never think you are not able to do one other step. You should always try to do it, and after what we have done, I am pretty sure that this is possible.
“How big and how quick? No one knows, even if you plan something really good, something different can happen. This is the magic of this football game that you are not able influence everything.”
Huddersfield face Arsenal on Sunday in their final league match of the season at the John Smith’s Stadium.
