My Players Have Made History, They Are Now Legends - Huddersfield Manager

After gaining promotion to the Premier League, Huddersfield manager David Wagner said his players have become legends. A 4-3 shoot-out victory in the Sky Bet Championship play-off final followed a nervy goalless 120 minutes at Wembley on Monday, meaning the Terriers will return to the top flight of English football for the first time since 1972.
He said “Everybody knows that last time this club was in the top division was 45 years ago, it's a big, big achievement and I'm so proud of my players, and I'm happy for the whole town and everyone who helped Huddersfield take these steps forward - including the chairman, who backed nearly all of my ideas! I said to the players before the play-offs that you are heroes after what they've done this season. But in football you can go from hero to zero in only a week, but now they've become legends. Everyone will remind this group what they've done with such a small budget, and they deserve it. We've had so many setbacks and problems without the the biggest squad, but we trusted and believed in ourselves and came through in the end.”
Wagner became the first ever foreign boss to win the second-tier play-offs in England, and said he was delighted to prove that experience is not the be all and end all in football.
He said “I'm so happy we've proven that experience is not everything, I've always been confronted with questions of my experience in English football, the league, no winter break and the play-offs. Experience is important, but if you have passion, desires and ideas you can match it. We've shown it's possible and brought this fairy tale to a happy ending.”
