Before that, he was under contract with FC Schalke 04 for a good year. He was released from the miners at the end of September 2020.
Wagner: “A great honor”
“It’s a very special and proud moment for me. It’s a great honor to be back in England as Norwich City’s head coach,” said Wagner.
For Wagner it is the second station in England. He coached Huddersfield Town from November 2015 to January 2019 and helped the club gain promotion to the Premier League in 2017. Before Wagner there was already a German coach from Norwich: The current Mönchengladbach head coach Daniel Farke even managed to get promoted twice with the club.
Norwich is currently only 11th in the championship table, and the goal of direct promotion is in danger as they are already 15 points behind second-placed Sheffield United. “We now have to look ahead and work extremely hard,” said Wagner.
