Europe’s Top Football Franchise to hire its First-ever Australian Boss


Just In: Ex-Australian Socceroo Patrick Kisnorbo, who has been named manager of ES Troyes AC, a team in French Ligue 1, is about to alter the course of history because he is first-ever Australia national to serve in Europe’s ‘big five leagues.

Kisnorbo will join Troyes AC, a City Football Group owned by Manchester City, right after the conclusion of his current coaching assignment with Melbourne City A-League. However, his joining dates are still not revealed by the Club Officials.

Pertinently, the Former Footballer wraps a countable playing record, as he played, captained, and then coached Melbourne City. During pro-career, Kisnorbo played as a Defender and represented the National Australian side in 18 matches.

Under his supervision, the club won two premierships alongside the 2021 championship, while they are unbeatable far in the 2022-23 A-League campaign. In his absence, City A-League Women’s coach Raod Vidosic will take on Men’s side as Interim coach.

The CEO of Melbourne City, Brad Rowse, remarked at Kisnorbo’s farewell ceremony: “We consider ourselves blessed to have been able to hang onto Patrick for so long, and we applaud what he has achieved at Melbourne City. He was crucial in developing the idea and methods of our club such that it is now viable and has room for further development.”
