Town head coach David Wagner faced the media ahead of the first Premier League game of the season against Chelsea on Saturday afternoon (15:00 kick-off).

Town come off the back of a strong pre-season which included victories over Bologna and RB Leipzig, and will be looking to take that form into the start of the new campaign.

The Terriers concluded a successful transfer window with the deadline day addition of Montpellier forward Isaac Mbenza, who joined on

a season-long loan deal.

Michael Hefele was a deadline day departure from Huddersfield Town and Wagner is set to pay tribute to the cult hero.

The German head coach was joined by Mathias Jorgensen (Zanka) and the pair talked World Cup, transfers, Chelsea and there was also mention of the all important Terrier Spirit and 12th man (fans).

What better way to end

That is all from the press conference - not sure about you but 3pm Saturday can not come around quick enough for us!

12th man

Ready for action

Zanka said he is ready and in a really good state. He said he feels as though he has had the right amount of rest and missed the team.

Zanka on Schindler

Initiation test

Still the underdog

Zanka said Town are still the underdogs and that is something the team thrives on.

The World Cup

He said the World Cup was a really enjoyable experience and something like that can only make you a better player.

That is all from DW

Schindler the best signing?

Not just about the money

Pitch-perfect (hopefully)

Great to be back!

Team news

David Wagner will have almost a full strength team to select from with just Danny Williams and Erik Durm missing

Transfer policy explained

What is success?

Of course it is to stay up!

Schindler

Best pre-season ever

No talk on Chelsea

What better combo

Our Mel taking notes

Not interested in other clubs and their spending

Happy with signings

Welcome back!

Schindler

The press conference comes just an hour after news emerged that last season’s Player of the Season Christopher Schindler has signed a contract extension committing himself to the club until 2021. What great news!

Zanka will also address the press

All set up
