Norwich City next manager after David Wagner
David Wagner, the former Huddersfield Town and Schalke 04 manager, was appointed as the head coach of Norwich City on 6th January 2023. The German-born coach has taken on the challenge of leading the Canaries back to the Premier League after their relegation in the 2021/22 season.
Wagner's appointment was met with excitement from Norwich City fans, who are hoping he can bring back the attacking and exciting football that the club was known for during their previous stint in the top flight. His experience in English football, coupled with his impressive record in the Bundesliga, makes him a perfect candidate for the job.
Before entering into the coaching world, Wagner was a striker who played for several clubs in Germany, including Schalke 04, FC Gütersloh, and Mainz 05. He also had a brief international career, playing eight times for the United States national team.
After retiring as a player, Wagner moved into coaching and had a successful spell as the manager of Borussia Dortmund II. It was during this time that he developed a reputation for his attacking style of football and his ability to develop young players. This led to him being appointed as the manager of Huddersfield Town in November 2015.
During his time at Huddersfield, Wagner oversaw one of the most remarkable promotions in recent English football history. He guided the Terriers to the Premier League for the first time in their history in the 2016/17 season, beating Reading in the Championship playoff final. Despite being one of the favourites for relegation, Huddersfield managed to avoid the drop in their first season in the top flight, finishing in 16th place.
After leaving Huddersfield in January 2019, Wagner returned to Germany to manage Schalke 04. Unfortunately, his time at the club was less successful, and he was sacked in June 2020 following a poor run of results.
Wagner's first league game in charge of Norwich was a 4-0 win against Preston North End. Norwich fans will be hoping that this early success is a sign of things to come and that Wagner can guide the club back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
David Wagner's appointment as the head coach of Norwich City is an exciting development for the club and their fans. His track record in developing young players and his attacking style of football make him the ideal candidate to lead the club back to the Premier League. If he can replicate the success he had at Huddersfield, Norwich City fans will have a lot to look forward to in the coming years.
