New Manager Appointed

  Jose Morais  

So as expected it is an underwhelming appointment of head coach at Oakwell with Jose Morais given an 18 month deal.


Who? I head most Barnsley fans say and that is exactly what I was thinking when I heard the news.


I was hoping for someone with Championship experience but was expecting a left field foreign appointment which is what we have got.


His coaching CV is excellent having worked under Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Chelsea.


His managerial experience however is limited and although he had a 74% win league in Tunisia, I look more towards what I would call his only ‘real’ job as head coach at AEK Athens where he only secured three wins in 14 games.


Whilst it isn’t the appointment that I was looking for, I will fully get behind him and the team as all us reds fans need to do.
