David Wagner has departed his role as Head Coach of #htafc by mutual consent.— Huddersfield Town (@htafcdotcom) 14 January 2019

And now it seems that his close connection with fellow German Premier League manager, and off-field good friend Klopp has seen Liverpool fans to take to social media in regards to Wagner's sudden availability.
Acknowledging the close relationship between the two - Wagner was best man at Klopp’s wedding, and has previously been part of the Reds boss’ coaching staff back in Germany - Liverpool fans are now calling for a reunion.
So Wagner left Huddersfield.— SM7_LFC (@essinem7) 14 January 2019
Can't blame him. He's taken them as far as he could, and clearly over achieved last season.
He'll undoubtedly get snapped up by a bigger club.
Assistant #LFC manager anyone?
I want David Wagner at Liverpool now! The perfect long term replacement for klopp who’s said to retire before his 60’s could easily slip into a assistant coach role meanwhile. pic.twitter.com/fQFy2zlhQk— Becker (@LeVerrell) 14 January 2019

The Terriers may find themselves at the bottom of the Premier League, looking likely to be relegated, but it's no secret that without Wagner they would have never made it this far in the first place.
For that reason, the German has received an outpour of support and admiration for the job he did.
David Wagner has parted company with @htafcdotcom. He did an unbelievably good job on a shoestring budget. Sure he’ll get another good job soon.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) 14 January 2019
• Playoff Final at Wembley— Jason Brant (@JaseBrant) 15 January 2019
• Playoff Semi-final at Hillsborough
• Staying up at Chelsea
• Being 2-0 up against Man Utd & the entire ground singing: “can we play you every week?”
NOTHING will beat that! NOTHING!
I love you David Wagner.
What a job Wagner did to get Huddersfield up and to keep them up. Surely he would be the best man to get them back up next year if they go down this season.— LFCSteAl (@LFCSteAl) 14 January 2019
He certainly won’t be short of job offers, and when the inevitable happens and another Premier League manager bites the dust, the ex-Huddersfield boss' name will almost certainly be in the mix.
