Patrick Kisnorbo will become the first Australian to manage in one of Europe’s ‘big five’ leagues after the Melbourne City A-League men’s boss was hired by ES Troyes AC.
The former Socceroo will make the move to the French Ligue 1 side which is also part of the City Football Group, owned by Manchester City.
Kisnorbo played for, captained and then coached Melbourne City, leading them to consecutive premierships across the last two seasons as well as the 2021 championship. They are unbeaten so far in the 2022-23 A-League campaign.
