Fresh twist in West Brom manager hunt as 47-year-old makes decision

Former Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner is not interested in becoming the new manager of West Bromwich Albion, according to reports from Sky Sports.

The West Midlands club are on the search for a new manager after parting company with Darren Moore at the weekend, with the club’s chances of automatic promotion looking very slim indeed.

Reports had emerged claiming that former Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic and former Huddersfield boss David Wagner are high up on the club’s radar, with the duo both having experience of gaining promotion to the Premier League.

But news has now surfaced claiming that Wagner is not interested in the job at the Hawthorns, and is happy to wait until the summer for his next opportunity in management.

The German has been without a job since his departure from Huddersfield in January, after doing a magnificent job at the helm of the Terriers.

The 47-year old guided the Yorkshire club away from the relegation zone in the 2015/16 campaign, and then took them to promotion to the top-flight via the play-offs the season after.

West Brom, after three league games without a win, currently sit 4th in the Sky Bet Championship table, nine points off the play-off positions.

The Verdict

This is a blow for West Brom, as Wagner could have been a good appointment for the club.

He did a magnificent job with Huddersfield Town, and more importantly, has experience of winning the play-offs which looks to be the most likely route into the Premier League for Albion this term.

Slavisa Jokanovic has to be the man for West Brom.
