Barnsley job attracting big interest with club approached by a ‘number’ of candidates
Barnsley have been approached by representatives of a number of candidates both domestic and abroad.
Barnsley are ‘highly likely’ to go down the overseas route again, according to a report by the Yorkshire Post.
The Tykes are in the hunt for a new boss to replace Markus Schopp.
Last few managers
Barnsley are no strangers to bringing in a coach from abroad and all five of their past permanent managerial appointments have been foreign.
Jose Morais, Daniel Stendel, Gerhard Struber, Valerien Ismael and Schopp have all come and gone since 2018 and the Yorkshire club are now scouring the market looking for the next person to take the reins.
Whoever the Tykes choose as their next manager has a tough job on their hands.
Saturday’s loss to Hull has left them four points from safety and only Derby County separate them from the bottom of the table.
Barnsley have won just two out of their opening 17 games this term.
The international break now gives them a good chance to bring someone in.
Next up is a tough trip to Craven Cottage on 20th November to face high-flying Fulham ahead of a hectic winter period.
