Two weeks into 2019, the English Premier League has recorded a new managerial casualty.

Premier League Huddersfield Town said on Monday they had parted company with head coach David Wagner by mutual consent, with the club bottom of the Premier League.

"The 47-year-old leaves Town after detailed discussions with the Board of Directors, with both parties agreeing this is the correct move for the future of the club," Huddersfield said on Twitter.

Huddersfield Town Chairman Dean Hoyle said in a statement: "Under David's management, we took this Club to the highest position it has held in almost 50 years and created memories that will last forever.

"His achievements will rightly put him up there in Huddersfield Town history alongside great names like Herbert Chapman and Mick Buxton; legendary managers who changed the face of this Club.

"As I had said previously, I had no intention of sacking David this season. Subsequently David -- being the great man he is -- came to us and made it clear that he needs a break from the rigours of football management."
