Neil Warnock is to leave Huddersfield after Wednesday’s home game against Stoke.
The 74-year-old, who signed a one-year contract in the summer having joined the club on a short-term deal in February in order to save them from relegation from the Championship, has agreed he and assistant Ronnie Jepson will step down from their roles at the club to progress plans put in place after an internal overhaul.
“I can confirm Wednesday will be Neil and Ronnie’s last game at the football club,” said Huddersfield’s chief executive, Jake Edwards. “I’d like to express our huge gratitude for everything they’ve accomplished over the past seven months. Few management duos could have kept us in the Championship and they’ve solidified their legendary status.
Always liked them, he did a great job keeping them in the Championship last season, I don't think anyone else could have done it. Always thought he would manage us at one point as he would have been a good fit for us. Hope he has a great retirement, sadly his type of no nonsense, common sense, completely honest manager are now a disappearing breed.
