Wagner takes pride in Man Utd scalp

Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner couldn’t have been happier after Saturday’s 2-1 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Aaron Mooy and Laurent Depoitre scored for the Terriers in the first half, who managed to hold out for the win despite Marcus Rashford pulling one back late on.

"I said to the players that I wouldn't expect a result, but that I can believe in a result," Wagner said.

"That is why it so huge for us. It's a very proud moment, that we were able to beat Manchester United at home.

"In one game you can have a chance. If there is a chance, try to catch it. Today was our moment because we were at our best and maybe they weren't.

"Small Huddersfield have beaten Man United and it is one of the proudest moments in my managerial career. It makes me very happy.

"It's another chapter in the fairytale we started nearly two years ago. It has shown everything is possible in football. 

"I have to make totally clear what are extraordinary and ordinary results for us. This was extraordinary, but we must stay humble."
