Friend­ship aside, Hud­der­s­field boss eyes Reds win

Weekly Trust - - Shot! -

Hud­der­s­field Town boss David Wag­ner will put his friend­ship with Liver­pool man­ager Jur­gen Klopp on the back-burner when his team travel to An­field to­day as he looks to take the scalp of another Premier League heavy­weight.

Wag­ner, whose pro­moted side pulled off a fa­mous 2-1 win over Manch­ester United last week­end, is great friends with fel­low Ger­man Klopp.

The two were team­mates at Mainz in the 90s and Wag­ner coached the sec­ond team at Borus­sia Dort­mund when Klopp was in charge of the se­nior side. They will face each other from op­pos­ing ends of the dugout for the first time this week­end. “It’s ex­tra­or­di­nary be­cause he’s my best friend and man­ager of Liver­pool but the real im­por­tant and ex­tra­or­di­nary story is Hud­der­s­field Town beats Liver­pool in the Premier League in a com­pet­i­tive game,” Wag­ner told a news con­fer­ence on Thurs­day. “For sure I’m look­ing for­ward to it... even when I joined Hud­der­s­field and he was al­ready man­ager of Liver­pool I never thought we would meet in the Premier League.”
