Huddersfield’s sporting director Olaf Rebbe leaves role three days after David Wagner quits as Terriers boss

17 Jan

Huddersfield’s sporting director Olaf Rebbe has followed manager David Wagner out of the club.

Like Wagner, Rebbe has left the Premier League’s bottom side by mutual consent, but Rebbe was only in the job for seven months.

Rebbe was sacked by Wolfsburg last April

“The club wants to make a fresh start as it searches for its next head coach, following the recent departure of David Wagner, and this parting of ways has been agreed as the best for everyone concerned,” the Terriers said in a statement.

Huddersfield chief executive Julian Winter said: “We thank Olaf for his service and wish him all the best for the future.”

The club said chairman Dean Hoyle and Winter would work with head of recruitment Josh Marsh on first-team matters in the short term.

Wagner also left by mutual consent on Monday after admitting he needed a break from the rigours of the battle to keep the league’s bottom side up against the odds.

Reports have suggested the Terriers are ready to announce their new manager after Sunday’s match with Manchester City – a game you can listen to live on talkSPORT – for which Under-23 coach Mark Hudson will be in charge.
