BARNSLEY director Don Rowing has urged the club’s supporters to be patient as they try to find the “best possible” new manager.
The Reds have been hunting for a first-team boss since May 15 when Mark Robins resigned after nearly two years in charge at Oakwell.
Speaking exclusively to The Star, Rowing said: “We’re doing our very best to find the right man for the job, but these things do take time.
“There’s a protocol in place when you seek permission to speak to managers - and we’re following the proper protocol and playing it straight.
“We’d love to find a new manager as quickly as possible, but he has to be the best possible person for the job, so we’re not going to rush things.
“I’m sure the fans understand that we’re trying to do what’s best for everyone. I urge them to be patient until we get the right man for the job.”
