League One side Barnsleyhave gotten a new manager in DanielStendelafter an extensive recruitment process. The club has confirmed that the new manager will lead the team into a new era as they seek an automatic promotion to the Championship.

Stendel needs to develop clear strategies and ways of implementation to ensure the club reaches the heights sought by the board and the fans by the end of the season. The 44-year old is known for his work ethic and strong desire for youth-based football. He plays high intensity, constant attacking football. The coach demands that his players are very fit so his counter pressing system can work.

Stendel likes his team rushing to regain possession immediately they lose the ball, always trying to move into the final third of the opponents and attempting goals. This system was effective when he coached Hannover 96, where his team scored 50 goals in 28 games with their constant attacking nature of play.

The German played over 200 matches at Hannover in 14 years before he moved into management. He was appointed coach of the club in 2016 and in his first year he posted a 54 percent win ration despite the odds.

He reportedly agreed to a two year deal with the South Yorkshire based side. He is set to resume officially on July 1st at Oakwell. His backroom staffs are set to be announced in days, as with the club’s pre-season plans.

While speaking to the media, the new manager said he has the feeling that the people within the club have the same vision as himself and that they are thinking in the same direction. The club chief executive Gauthier Ganaye affirmed the coach’s comments, adding that Stendel is one of the best in the counter-press system of play which is used by most successful teams in the world. He declared that it was a new era at Barnsley.
