Wagner took Huddersfield into the Premier League in 2017

He joins Schalke on a three-year deal and replaces interim boss Huub Stevens, stepping in for Domenico Tedesco, who was sacked in March.

Wagner used to be in Schalke’s ‘enemy camp’ having been in charge of rivals Borussia Dortmund’s reserve team from 2011-15.

Schalke have had a bad season in the Bundesliga, currently lying 15th in the table but are safe from relegation with two games to play.

Meanwhile, Huddersfield were unable to stay in the Premier League under Jan Siewert’s guidance.
