Huddersfield Town

Wagner refuses to pass the buck

11th January 2019, 09:53 by Alex Jack

Manager David Wagner said he takes full responsibility for Huddersfield Town's current struggles at the foot of the Premier League.

Huddersfield have lost a club record nine straight matches in all competitions and lie eight points adrift of safety, having won only two league games this season.

The Terriers boss said injuries and suspensions had not helped his cause and that seven of those nine defeats had been by a solitary goal, but the German insisted the buck stopped with him.

"I know this is part of the job and I know that it is my responsibility," the manager told reporters.

"This is the truth. Since I arrived I have had responsibility for this football club and this means not only the three years, but the last six weeks as well.

"They were not what we wanted or matched the ambitions I had and I'm responsible for it.

"As I said I'm responsible for everything that happened before these six weeks and also for what has happened during them.

"This is what I take on the chin. All together, individually, every player has to take it on the chin, step up and take responsibility for what is in front of us."
