Huddersfield Town have confirmed that German defender Christopher Schindler will be departing the club at the end of the season.
Huddersfield Town legend Christopher Schindler will depart the Yorkshire club, after amassing 185 appearances for the Terriers across a five-year spell.
Schindler, 31, is etched forever in the history of Huddersfield Town after scoring the penalty kick that sent Huddersfield Town to the Premier League for the first time in the club’s history, in the 2017/18 play-off final against Reading. He was also named Huddersfield Town Player of the Season for the 2017/18 and 2018/19 seasons.
Huddersfield Town Chairman Phil Hodgkinson has described Schindler as one of “the greats” of Huddersfield Town football club, and has plans for a “send-off” for the centre-back at the John Smith’s Stadium once restrictions ease.
“I’d like to begin by thanking Chris for everything he has done at Huddersfield Town over the last five-years. He helped us achieve the unimaginable and his name will forever be written in the Club’s history. Said Hodgkinson.
“He will always be considered among the greats at Huddersfield Town, which is down to the tremendous part he played both on and off the pitch.
“Unfortunately, we knew that there was always going to be a time where Christopher left us. This is a sad day, but this is right for both him and for the Club. We wish him nothing but success in the future; he will always be a friend to this Club.
“When supporters are back at the John Smith’s Stadium, Chris and his family will be invited to a game where they can have the send-off they deserve and say goodbye to the Huddersfield Town supporters.”
