Barnsley: Remember Daniel Nardiello? Here’s what he’s up to nowawdays



Daniel Nardiello was a very busy journeyman striker after leaving Barnsley for Queens Park Rangers in the summer of 2007.

The Manchester United academy graduate went to play for: QPR, Blackpool, Hartlepool United, Bury three times, Oldham Athletic, Exeter City, Rotherham United, Plymouth Argyle and finally Bangor City before retiring in 2017.

Nardiello finished his career with 95 goals in 320 Football League appearances where he was warmed to by supporters of a whole host of clubs. His best goalscoring season came in 2012/13 as Rotherham United finished second in League Two with Nardiello chipping with 18 league goals in a successful automatic promotion hunt.

He finished joint-third in the scoring charts that year with Nahki Wells, only trailing Jamie Cureton and Tom Pope.

Not as prolific as some on a consistent basis but Nardiello offered a lot with his tireless running off the ball and link-up play with midfielders and strike partners.

The three-time Wales international was on the books at Blackpool when they achieved their remarkable promotion to the Premier League under Ian Holloway but had his best moments in League One and Two.
