David Wagner was relieved to have bagged the first Premier League win of the season against Fulham thanks to a rare Timothy Fosu-Mensah own goal

Wagner celebrated the third year of his Huddersfield Town appointment with a deserved first goal and victory on home turf since April.

Following the victory, David Wagner told the club’s website:

“Today the players left everything on the pitch. They really showed the Terrier identity. It wasn’t the best football-wise, but it was all about the three points tonight.

Incoming Huddersfield chairman says he will invest on the team

The club was demoted from the English Premier League to the Championship, but a new CEO will take charge really soon.

“The supporters really were behind the players from the first minute and this helped massively.

“We deserved the lead, and in the second half we were able to see out this win. It is good to have this winning feeling back. We are back in the race!

“Our idea was to match them up and press them high, as they are so strong in ball possession.”
