‘My hero already’ – Many Barnsley fans react as Markus Schopp sends message



Another managerial change has taken place at Oakwell with Barnsley appointing Markus Schopp as their new Head Coach.

After narrowly missing out on promotion via the play-offs last season, Valerien Ismael caught the eye and decided to move to West Bromwich Albion.

Barnsley weren’t on the lookout for a new manager for too long, though, with the club moving quickly to appoint Markus Schopp as their new boss.

Schopp was in charge of TSV Hartberg for three years and led the club to a seventh-placed finish in the Austrian Bundesliga last season.
