Lee Johnson appointed new Barnsley manager

first_imgLeague One side Barnsley have announced the appointment of former Oldham boss Lee Johnson as the club’s new manager.Johnson, 33, currently the third youngest manager in the Football League, was unveiled at Oakwell on Wednesday afternoon after signing a contract until 2018.He becomes the Tykes’ sixth permanent manager in less than six years.Barnsley, who sacked former boss Danny Wilson 13 days ago, have agreed an undisclosed compensation package with Oldham as Johnson had signed an extended deal in January 2014 to keep him at Park until 2018.A club statement on Barnsley’s official website read: “From the outset the board determined that it was seeking young candidates with strong coaching credentials and astute tactical awareness. A clear and attractive football philosophy and a viable plan to implement that philosophy was also sought.“The board also gave some credit for a knowledge of our club’s current playing contingent, the teams in our division and proven ability to recruit players with development potential.“A small number of candidates were interviewed and Lee Johnson was selected as significantly the best of these. He met the selection criteria established and also produced a specific plan for Barnsley Football Club for his first 100 days in charge. This included a playing strategy, specific tactics, identified current weaknesses and credible recruitment targets to strengthen our team.”Johnson initially signed a two-year deal with Oldham in March 2013 and after steering them clear of relegation at the end of that campaign, he has lifted them to within two points of a play-off place on a modest budget this time around.Wilson, who led Barnsley to promotion to the Premier League in his first spell as boss in 1997, departed Oakwell on February 12 after a home defeat to Fleetwood had left the Reds in 17th place and staring at a relegation battle.Barnsley were thrashed 5-1 at Crawley in caretaker-manager Mark Burton’s first game in charge but have since secured back-to-back league wins to lift them eight points clear of the bottom four. 1 New Barnsley manager Lee Johnson last_img read more
