Ex-Barça: Krankl to Linz

Austrian first division club Linz has yesterday officially announced the appointment of former Barcelona player Hans Krankl (56) as their new manager until the end of the season.

Krankl has been away from coaching since he was dismissed as Austrian national team coach in September 2005.

Hans Krankl joined Barcelona in the summer of 1978, arriving from Rapid Wien. Three years later, and after going on loan with First Vienna in 1980, he returned to Rapid Wien.

With Barcelona, Krankl won one Spanish cup in 1981 and one European cup winner’s cup in 1979. In the 1978-1979 season he became the Liga top goalscorer with 29 goals.
