    This is the article

    Barnsley Football Club can officially announce Poya Asbaghi as our new Head Coach.

    The 36-year-old has put pen to paper at Oakwell following his arrival from the Swedish national set-up, where he was U21 head coach.

    Asbaghi began his coaching career as an assistant at Swedish third tier outfit Dalkurd FF, before taking over the helm two years later.

    After a successful spell with the Uppsala-based club, the Iranian-born coach was appointed by Gefle IF in 2017 before a two-year stint with Swedish giants IFK Göteborg between 2018 and 2020.

    He led Göteborg to Svenska Cupen glory in 2020 with a 2-1 victory over fierce rivals Malmö FF before leaving his position at IFK in September that year.

    Asbaghi won six of his 10 games in charge of Sweden U21s and arrives in South Yorkshire having left the young Swedes top of UEFA U21 European Championship Qualifying Group F after seven fixtures.

    He will be accompanied by Ferran Sibila, who was his assistant at Göteborg. The 33-year-old Spaniard has previously coached at Swedish outfit GIF Sundsvall.

    Khaled El-Ahmad, Barnsley FC Chief Executive Officer, said: “We welcome Poya and Ferran to the Club. Both are good people, talented coaches with a clear leadership and tactical philosophy.

    “Poya was on the radar back in 2019 and as we went through our recruitment process it became clear to all parties that Poya and Ferran can take Barnsley FC forward.

    We would like to thank Jo Laumann and the first team coaching staff for their continued hard work and professionalism over the past few weeks during what has been a transitional period for the Club.”

    Laumann will oversee Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship fixture against Fulham, with Asbaghi and new assistant coach, Sibila, expected to take first team training on Monday 22 November.



    Some good experience there with IFK and the Sweden u21 team.

    GET TO KNOW | POYA ASBAGHI

    Poya Asbaghi officially joined the Club on Wednesday, but what do you know about our new Head Coach?

    Born in Karaj – just outside of the Iranian capital, Tehran – in July 1985, he was only one-year-old when his family fled the country because of political persecution.

    Since then, Asbaghi has spent his life in Sweden and began his coaching journey as assistant at Dalkurd FF, a club based in Uppsala, where he grew up with his family.

    Formed in 2004, Dalkurd was founded by members of the Kurdish diaspora, who had fled their respective homelands.

    In March 2015, the club were due to fly back to Sweden from Barcelona via Düsseldorf, but changed their plans at the last minute as the layover would have been too long. After taking three separate planes and travelling via Munich and Zurich, the team heard the horrifying news that their originally scheduled flight, Germanwings Flight 4U 9525, had crashed into the French Alps, tragically claiming the lives of everyone on board.

    During his time with Dalkurd, Asbaghi helped the club win promotion to the second tier of Swedish football for the first time in their history.

    He departed Dalkurd midway through the 2017 campaign to take over fellow Superettan outfit Gefle IF, where he successfully steered them to safety by winning 10 of his 21 matches and picking up 34 of their 36 points.

    Asbaghi’s achievements in the lower leagues hadn’t gone unnoticed and eventually top flight side and two-time UEFA Cup winners IFK Göteborg came calling in January 2018 ahead of the Allsvenskan season.

    An 11th place finish would follow in his first year at the helm in Gothenburg, before guiding the club to seventh spot 12 months later.

    However, his biggest achievement during his time with IFK was the Svenska Cup triumph in 2020 as his team overcame fierce rivals Malmö FF 2-1 to win that competition for the eighth time.

    Upon departing Göteborg, he took over as Sweden U21 coach in November 2020 and won six of his 10 games in charge – including four during their UEFA European U21 qualifying campaign – and leaves with the young Swedes top of Group F.

    Asbaghi now starts the next step of his exciting coaching career at Barnsley Football Club and will take his first training session on Monday 22 November.

    Barnsley are LEGIT in terms of moneyball. I rate them even higher than Brentford in that aspect. I posted these videos in the other thread in regards to Barnsley's moneyball approach.

    He seems to be considered an up and coming management prospect. If he does well here it will catch the interest of big championship clubs and maybe lower table PL, Bundesliga, etc teams

    I wouldn't get too excited about the prospect of Iranian players going there. Iran has no young players that would be eligible to play in the UK due to Brexit. Swedish Iranians yes but players like Allahyar, Ghaedi, etc do not have enough points to get a visa.

    I am sure Ghaedi has enough (fidelity) point with all the shopping of British brands in Dubai mall
