Took over in February

Huddersfield Town and André Breitenreiter part ways


André Breitenreiter has left his post as coach of former English second division side Huddersfield Town after less than three months. As the relegated team announced on Friday evening, the club and the fifty-year-old have mutually agreed to part ways. After relegation to the 3rd league, it was agreed that it was better for the club not to continue the cooperation, it was said. Breitenreiter had a contract until 2026.

The former Bundesliga manager took over Huddersfield in 20th place in the table on February 19. After that, under the leadership of the former TSG 1899 Hoffenheim coach, there were only two wins in 13 matches and the club slipped to 23rd and penultimate place in the standings.

Breitenreiter was the third German coach at Huddersfield after David Wagner (2015 – 2019) and Jan Siewert (2019). After stints in the Bundesliga with SC Paderborn, FC Schalke 04 and Hannover 96, the former professional won the Swiss championship with FC Zurich in 2022.
