Neil Warnock departs Huddersfield Town after draw with Stoke City

Neil Warnock has left Huddersfield Town as manager after his side played out a 2-2 draw with Stoke City last night.

The English boss announced earlier this week that he would be stepping down from the managerial post after Wednesday’s home match.  

The 74-year-old’s final game saw the Terriers taking a lead through Matty Pearson, but Daniel Johnson immediately restored parity with a close-range finish. 

A brilliant header from Ben Wilmot at the hour mark put his side on course for victory, but Jack Rudoni managed to rescue a point with a superb finish in the 68th minute. 

Warnock announced his retirement from football last year but returned to management in February to save Huddersfield from relegation

The experienced manager made a huge impact as he led the Championship outfit to a series of excellent results, sealing an 18th-place finish. 

He was expected to leave at the end of the campaign but reversed his decision to pen a one-year deal. 

Huddersfield made a mixed start to the 2023-24 season, picking up eight points from their first seven games. 

However, they were on a two-match winning streak when the club’s chief executive Jake Edwards said they planned to ‘make a longer-term managerial appointment’. 

Warnock said that his departure is not due to health reasons and he is not retiring.

He has the distinction of managing sixteen different clubs from the Premier League to non-league. Warnock also holds the record for the most promotions in English football.
