Buhler leaves Huddersfield to join Wagner at Schalke
Written by Simon Austin — May 18, 2019
ASSISTANT MANAGER Christoph Buhler has officially left Huddersfield Town and will now re-join former Terriers manager David Wagner at Bundesliga side Schalke.
First-team coach Andrew Hughes, who joined Huddersfield in May 2016, has also departed. The duo have not been involved in day-to-day duties since Wagner left in January. However, they were still listed in the matchday programme for the final Premier League home game of the season against Manchester United.
Now their severance deals have been finalised though and Dean Hoyle, who is stepping down as chairman, said: “I would like to thank Christoph and Hughesy for what they helped us achieve here at Huddersfield Town.
“They worked tirelessly to support David Wagner and helped us achieve things on the pitch that no-one thought was possible. I have no doubt in my mind that they will both continue to have successful careers and I wish them all the best for the future.”
Buhler worked with Wagner at Weinham, Hoffenheim and Borussia Dortmund before moving with him to Huddersfield in November 2015. He will soon be announced as his assistant at Schalke too, TGG understands.
Andreas Winkler took over from Buhler as Huddersfield assistant in January this year, while former Town captain Mark Hudson was promoted from Under-23 boss to first-team coach.
