Barnsley have recently released a statement on the off-the-field developments involving their former manager Daniel Stendel.
They claim that they are still in talks with Scottish side Hearts over compensation for Stendel, who is believed to still be on Barnsley’s payroll.
He guided Barnsley to promotion into the Championship last season, but only won one league game in charge of the club this term, which came against Fulham on the opening day of this year’s campaign.
Barnsley also claim that Stendel entered negotiations with another Championship club after winning promotion with the Tykes, which the club claim is a violation of his contract, with the 45-year-old not talking to Barnsley’s senior officials over the matter.
Plenty of Barnsley supporters took to social media to issue their thoughts on this recent development.

I don’t believe a word of it. Mr stendel was devastated at having to leave Barnsley. He loved it here. He would still be here now if the board has listened to and supported him with a few experienced players.

He wanted experience he didn’t get it. He didn’t want half of his squad selling from under his nose but yet he did. Can’t blame the bloke fair play to him

The board are making this club a joke. It's obvious to everyone they have no real idea what they are doing. Goes to show money doesn't buy you class.

I wouldn’t trust Conway as far as I could throw him, but I really don’t believe he would have made up the tampering story. My money is on Sheffield Wednesday.

I wish @stendel_daniel the best of luck at hearts. His contract ended when you sacked him. No compensation to pay. The board at barnsley stink and need removing.
