3 Barnsley players who could benefit from Daniel Stendel’s departure



Barnsley announced on Tuesday that they have parted company with manager Daniel Stendel, after a run of ten league games without a win.

The German took charge at Oakwell last summer and was able to guide Barnsley to automatic promotion from League One in his first season in English football, but the club have struggled since their return to the Championship.

Barnsley are without a win since the opening day of the season and slipped into the relegation zone at the weekend after being thumped 5-1 by Preston North End.

The club now have under two weeks until their next game against high-flying Swansea City to appoint a new manager.

Here are three Barnsley players who could benefit from Stendel’s departure from Oakwell…

Daniel Pinillos

Daniel Pinillos was a key player for Barnsley in League One last season, but the left-back has found first-team opportunities hard to come by this season due to the form of Ben Williams.

He’s made just five appearances for Barnsley in all competitions this season and has started just two games in the Championship.

Stendel liked to give young players a chance in the team, which is why Williams was often preferred to Pinillos at left-back.

However, the Spaniard is a good player though and he’ll surely fancy his chances of returning to the first team under the club’s next manager.

Jordan Green 

Jordan Green has made just two substitute appearances for Barnsley this season and has failed to make the squad in the Championship four times.

After making just ten appearances in League One last season, he’s one player who will surely be hoping to get his season back on track under the club’s next manager.

The winger will be determined to impress Stendel’s successor, whoever that may be, and convince him that he deserves more opportunities in the team.

Patrick Schmidt 

Another player who will be hoping to get more opportunities for Barnsley under Stendel’s successor is striker Patrick Schmidt.

Since arriving at Oakwell from Austrian side Admira Wacker in the summer, the 21-year-old has struggled for opportunities in the team and has made just four substitute appearances in the Championship.

He’s struggled to get into the team ahead of the likes of Cauley Woodrow, who has been the main source of goals for Barnsley this season.

However, the forward has been named in the Austria Under-21 squad for their upcoming games over the international break and will be determined to make an impact for his country, in the hope that Barnsley’s next manager gives him a chance in the team.

Have Barnsley made the right decision in sacking Daniel Stendel?
