Most recently he had to leave the LASK in Austria early, now Valerien Ismael will look after a new club – and is going to the island for it.
Former Bundesliga professional Valerien Ismael is the new coach of the English second division club FC Barnsley. As the club announced on Friday, the 45-year-old signed a three-year contract. Ismael succeeds the Austrian Gerhard Struber.
“I’m looking forward to the new position and the challenges it brings and I can’t wait to get to know the team, the coaching staff and everyone who works for the club. Of course, the fans too, so we can get started together.” , Ishmael is quoted in a statement from the association.
The former Bayern player recently led the Austrian first division club Linzer ASK as the front runner in the championship round, but despite a ban during the Corona break, he carried out team training. After a four point deduction and a weak championship round, the team slipped to fourth place and Ismael was dismissed in July.
