Wagner: Terriers biggest underdogs of all time

Cape Town - Huddersfield boss David Wagner has managed expectations by insisting his team are the biggest underdogs to ever compete in the Premier League.

The Terriers only just sneaked into the top flight by beating Reading in a penalty shootout in the Championship play-off final at Wembley, and Wagner believes surviving their first season will be tough.

"It is unquestionable that we are the biggest underdog of all time in the Premier League," Wagner was quoted as saying by FourFourTwo.

"People have been going to the stadium here for many years and have always seen this typical British football.

"And suddenly two clowns come from Germany [Wagner and his assistant Christoph Buhler], and within four weeks the football looks quite different!"

The West Yorkshire club have never competed in the Premier League era before and spent the last five seasons in the Championship.
