We are delighted to announce the appointment of Gerhard Struber as Barnsley Football Club’s new first team head coach. The 42-year-old Austrian arrives at Oakwell with top level experience, having managed Wolfsberger AC in this season’s UEFA Europa League, with impressive results to show for the matches played thus far.

Struber, a much sought-after product of the Red Bull coaching system, had a 13-year playing career as a combative midfielder. In 2007, hanging up his boots to begin his coaching career and entering the Red Bull Salzburg coaching system, Struber fine-tuned his skills in an environment which is now well renowned for its exciting, pressing and attacking style of football.

Our new head coach begins his new role at Oakwell immediately, having signed a contract until 2022 with a further year optional. 

An announcement will follow on the appointed backroom staff that will assist Struber.
