The Reds brought in a translator from Essex for Ismael’s first press conference, but he was rarely needed and the message was that he was firmly in touch with his new club’s way of thinking. p>

Coaches come and go at Oakwell – a little too often – but the style of play remains

The 45-year-old won’t have to drastically change anything before the Queens Park Rangers Championship visit tonight – just as well, having only completed two practice sessions

« Intensity, mentality, vertical play – be prepared to sacrifice because this way of playing football is difficult » is how Ismael explains his style, which came from the Germanic school followed by Daniel Stendel and Gerhard Struber

Ismael may have been born in France, but in a part of the country that has regularly changed hands with neighboring Germany Former Bayern Munich center-back speaks with his German translator Communication is, says Dominic Frieser, an important skill of his

Ismael started his coaching career alongside his immediate predecessor Struber in Hanover (the latter coaching second team, first under-19) and last season in the Austrian Bundesliga Ismael led LASK to their best start to the season, but lost their job when their title hopes were ended in a coronavirus protocol violation that saw them tie up six points

« I believe in this way of football and it is very important to me that the club does it, » he said « When I first came into contact with (Barnsley general manager) Dane Murphy, I had this feeling

“Gerhard Struber did a really good job and saved the club (from relegation) in the last second of the last game last season, but now we want to take the next step I want to put my mentality in it ‘team We want to be safe this season but earlier

« I want to see players who are not happy with a draw or even a win, we want to win the next game »

Having joined Barnsley from LASK this summer, Frieser had nothing but good things to say to his teammates about the new boss

« I am 100% happy, » said the forward. « Last season I think we won 35 out of 45 games. He’s a very good coach

“At first (after Struber left) I was thinking ‘Oh s ***!’ But Adam (Murray) did really well (as interim manager) He picked me and I scored my first goal under him (against Stoke City) Then when I heard that Valerien was coming, I was happy

« They (Struber and Ismael) both want to press and play fast forward. With Valerien we will play a 3-4-3 with wingers I think it will be easier (for me)

« I played last season under Valerien on the right or left wing and I know (the job) When I arrived here I was a No 9 with very great defenders behind me My strength is to go behind « 

Having been to Millwall for Saturday’s 1-1 draw and watching plenty of videos, Ismael is happy his first game is coming so early

« I have to talk to the players to get a feel for their capabilities, » he said « The spirit is very good and they want to do it (But) I need the game to see where we are »

He will rely heavily on Murray – « he knows the club, knows the players and I can ask him anything » – and the only other change of coach sees Joseph Laumann replacing Wolfgang Luisser

Barnsley hasn’t won since his dramatic victory in stoppage time at Brentford to stay in the league last season, but Ismael knows how fast-paced English football briefly played for Crystal Palace in 1998 and points out the number of remaining matches as a reason not to panic

« I feel like it was yesterday, » he said « It’s not a new environment for me » It was London, lots of traffic, lots of games – Vinnie Jones, I’m remember this guy! I might have been too young but it was good

« We have a lot of games so we need to be calm It’s (the match list) is a challenge but I experienced it last season (after the lockdown) so you have to control how you you train I told the players on Sunday that they should not only work with their body but with their head When I explain things I want them to understand quickly

« It’s a very good atmosphere The spirit is very good, very professional Everyone is ready to make changes »

Frieser and Ismael both mention the physical demands of players, which is why Barnsley might be hesitant to sign a free agent striker

« I want to feel that a man is 100% ready for my philosophy, not that he needs six to eight weeks to get in shape, » Ismael says

As for who will be in good shape tonight, he credits Cauley Woodrow and Jordan Williams with a « 50-50 » after their withdrawal from Saturday’s game less than ten minutes before kick-off
