Danny Ward played a crucial role in Huddersfield’s promotion triumph whilst on loan this season. The goalkeeper stepped up and showed heroism in back-to-back penalty shootouts during the Championship playoff finals. On Monday during the playoff final the Wales international stopped Reading’s Jordan Obita’s shot from the spot to allow teammate Christopher Schindler to net the winning penalty, sending Huddersfield through to the Premier League.

However, Ward has not only performed during the playoffs but has consistently displayed tremendous displays of skill, ability and determination, which has impressed the Huddersfield manager David Wagner who hopes to extend Ward’s stay in Yorkshire. Despite the friendship between the Huddersfield boss and Jürgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager maintains that Ward will return to Liverpool and compete with Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius for the No. 1 spot during pre-season. When asked about Ward’s further back in April Klopp stated, “Wardy is at Huddersfield, playing a brilliant season, he is our player, so we will bring him back next year and then there is [more] competition. ”Ward arrived at Liverpool from his hometown club Wrexham AFC, where he had been taken under the wing of former Liverpool European Cup winning defender, Joey Jones. Jones told ESPN FC, “He’s a smashing lad. He does remind me a lot of Neville Southall. He’s a bit of a loose cannon at times — and I think I told him that when he was with us.”

“They say goalkeepers are a bit mad and I think he is. [Danny] got a good character. I think he likes a laugh and a joke at the right time, but he can be serious and takes his football seriously. I have no doubt he’ll go on to have a great career in football.” “At Wrexham, we’re very proud of what he’s achieved. We have played a small part along the way but it’s, ultimately, down to Danny. ”Indeed, Ward has gone on to develop into a successful goalkeeper and has shown promise of a great career. Although it took Ward four years to break into the Liverpool first team, the young goalkeeper impressed when he made his debut against Bournemouth in April 2016 making some crucial saves to secure a 2-1 win.

His success did not end there, Ward played a part in Wales’ successful run in the 2016 Euros and signed a new five-year deal with Liverpool before moving to Huddersfield on loan for the season. The Welshman’s impressive season, making 46 appearances in the Championship, leave Liverpool with the decision to keep him at Anfield this season to compete for the No. 1 spot or continue his development on loan. Wagner is hopeful the goalkeeper will return to Huddersfield to help them compete in the Premier League next season. After Monday’s victory the Huddersfield boss said, “I will call Jürgen.”
