Mark Fotheringham has been waiting for the right opportunity to move back to the United Kingdom to put his Bundesliga plans into action. His recent experiences with Hertha Belin under the stewardship of three-time Bundesliga winner Felix Magath, could be just what Huddersfield Town need.
The former Celtic, Norwich City and Fulham midfielder is the favourite to take over the Terriers following Danny Schofield’s departure earlier this month. His appointment would be a wildcard option that fans will hope brings a repeat of David Wagner’s tenure at the club.
Fotheringham joined Hertha towards the end of last season, tasked with helping Magath guide the club to safety, which they did albeit through the relegation play-offs. The 38-year-old took brief charge of the first-team when his mentor was struck down with Covid-19 earlier this year and did in fact guide the club to an important 3-0 win over Hoffenheim.
