Daniel Stendel has been appointed Hearts manager on a two-and-a-half-year deal
Hearts have appointed former Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel as their new manager.
Former head coach Craig Levein was sacked at the end of October after just one win in their opening six games of the season.
Five weeks later and Stendel, who won promotion from League One with Barnsley in 2019, is tasked with dragging Hearts away from the relegation zone.
A statement released by the club said: “While it has taken some time for this process to reach its conclusion we firmly believe that Daniel is the right man to take the club forward.
“With our No 1 target now on board and his future pledged to Hearts, everyone at Tynecastle Park welcomes Daniel and hopes his appointment heralds an exciting new era for the Club as, together, we look to climb back up the Ladbrokes Premiership table.”
