Huddersfield Town head to Spain to start under David Wagner

New head coach David Wagner will have the chance to get to know his new players

Huddersfield Town will start life under new head coach David Wagner with a Spanish training camp.

The international break means there is no Championship match until a week on Saturday, when they head to Sheffield Wednesday.

That gives the former Borussia Dortmund II boss valuable time to work with his new charges.

And Town will escape the autumnal weather in England by heading abroad tomorrow .

The five-day camp will give Wagner, 44, the chance to get to know his squad and get his ideas across.

The German-born former USA international officially began work today.

He met players and staff as well as holding his first press conference .

Watch Wagner talking about the challenges he faces - and the opportunities which lie ahead

Wagner, appointed last Thursday after the sacking of Chris Powell, watched Saturday’s 3-0 home defeat by Leeds United from the directors’ box.

It left Town 19th in the Championship.
