Former Leeds United defender, Patrick Kisnorbo has been named head coach of Ligue 1 club ES Troyes AC. He became the first Australian to manage in one of Europe’s “top five” leagues. Troyes, is part of the same City Football Group as Melbourne and English Premier League champions Manchester City. The club is now 13th in Ligue 1, one point above the relegation zone.

This season brings further pressure because four teams, rather than three, will be demoted when Ligue 1 shrinks from 20 to 18.

Patrick is now managing the club as the former coach Bruno Irles dissmissed by the club earlier this month. “By joining Troyes, Patrick Kisnorbo becomes the first Australian to take leadership of a team in one of Europe’s five major leagues,” the club said in a statement.

He arrives in France after a great tenure as manager of Melbourne City. The city where he won the A-League title in his first season in 2021 and became runners-up this year.

Kisnorbo, a former Melbourne captain, spent eight years in England with Leicester and Leeds.

During a four-year stint at Elland Road, Kisnorbo made 56 appearances across all competitions before returning to his homeland with Melbourne City. Following that, the 41-year-old began his managerial career with Melbourne’s youth team.
