Appointed as Head Coach at Oakwell on November 19th 2019, Gerhard Struber arrived with a growing continental reputation having led previous club Wolfsberger AC in the UEFA Europa League and guiding the Austrian club to unprecedented heights in the Austrian Bundesliga.
A former player in his homeland, Struber won the Austrian Bundesliga with Salzburg as a midfielder and later the Austrian Super Cup, before featuring with less notable clubs as his playing career came to a close.
After retiring and getting a 'normal' job, a few years down the line, Gerhard re-entered football by way of coaching. After working at his former club's academy and gaining a reputation for his coaching of young talent, he was appointed Head Coach at FC Liefering but after a 5th-place finish he left to complete his UEFA Pro License.
Upon successfully completing his education he was appointed at Wolfsberger and left the club in 3rd-place in both the Bundesliga and their Europa League group, having drawn with Italian giants AS Roma and thumped German outfit Borussia Mönchengladbach 4-0 away from home.
