Wagner: Schindler not ready for Germany cap

Huddersfield Town defender Christopher Schindler impressed in Saturday’s goalless draw with Burnley, but manager David Wagner insists he’s not close to a Germany cap.

The Terriers dropped to seventh in the standings with the point earned at Turf Moor, but Wagner is pleased with how the signing from 1860 Munich is adapting to the Premier League.

 "For me, it's not a surprise what he has shown in the first six games because I have seen it all last season when he played very well.

"He's becoming more in focus and more people are recognising what a great centre-back he is. We will give him every support he needs.

"I am just happy how he has adapted, happy we have him, happy he's such a calm character and happy we don't have to worry that he won't carry on and keep his feet on the ground."

"He has played six Premier League games and six outstanding ones but if the question is about being a German international, I think everyone should calm down.

"They have some proper centre-backs who are at a good age, but we are very happy that we have him. I give him no pressure, he's been outstanding since he arrived and he's such a good character, so we'll give him all the support he needs to continue."
