It appears as though Barnsley manager Daniel Stendel can do no wrong. He’s guided the club to the verge of promotion back to the Championship but even the little things are being hailed by club supporters.
The club’s official Twitter account posted intriguing video footage of the German at Alton Towers as he was being interviewed by a Sky Sports reporter and Tykes fans were full of praise for him once again.

Supporters of the Yorkshire club have been raving about Stendel for most of the season and one fan was quick to utter that he was about to receive legendary status. Another individual thought he was at that stage already.
The footage shows the Tykes manager walking around the theme park, provoking one supporter to say it was bizarre but brilliant.
Barnsley are currently second in League One, five points ahead of third-placed Portsmouth who have a game in hand and six ahead of Sunderland who have played three fewer.
The Reds are targetting an instant return to the Championship after being relegated last term.
Here’s what supporters had to say.
What a club. What a bloke. Bizarre and brilliant at the same time. Love it
