A momentous occasion all-round on Sunday at the John Smith's Stadium, as Town had already secured survival, and Arsène Wenger bowed out with grace; and Head Coach David Wagner couldn't be prouder of his players for achieving Premier League status for yet another season.

Party atmospheres in all stands created an amphitheater of delight, relief and excitement ahead of a final-day which many had expected to be crucial to the cause of staying up; support which the David praised to a substantial extent for how the noise and backing has helped the players along the way every single step of the way.

The Head Coach felt that his players performed excellently, and maybe should have got something more from the game; not that it would've mattered in the end, anyway.

Wagner praised the annual lap of honour, explaining that it had been the most enjoyable of three completed whilst being at the Club, before following up to add that he believes his side has been consistent throughout the majority of the campaign whilst only dropping into the league's bottom three once.

One final mention went to Dean Whitehead, who after making over 600 appearances in English football, hung up his boots to take up a role with Town’s Academy mid-way through next season.

When speaking to #HTTV, David Wagner commented:

"It is a great day for all of us; it is a day of celebration and enjoyment."

"The players did brilliantly, and they played good football. Yes, we weren't clinical and unfortunately, we conceded defeat, but the performance was very good. There was a lot of passion and desire.

"The supporters delivered an amazing atmosphere; it was outstanding today, and I was able to enjoy every second.

"This was by miles the best lap of honour I've ever done. I'm so pleased for the players, the backroom staff and their families that they were able to take part. It was good to be able to give something back to them, as they have been a big part of our successful journey."
