Former Leeds centre-back Patrick Kisnorbo has been appointed head coach of Melbourne City Women’s for the 2017/18 season after assuming the assistant coach role this January.
We are delighted to announce Patrick Kisnorbo as our @WLeague Head Coach! #PKsigns— Melbourne City Women (@MelbCityWFC) July 6, 2017
Kisnorbo was a key part of teams success last season, helping guide City to a Finals series berth and making history after earning back-to-back titles for the club.
Paddy Kisnorbo played with Leeds United from 2009-2013. A fan favorite during his time with the Whites, Kisnorbo won the Fans Player of The Season and the Players Player Award in his first year with the club. Fans remember him most for his iconic headband bandage that he wore during the first two years with the club, which he wore as a tradition after suffering a head injury on his debut with the Whites. After his release from the club in 2013, Kisnorbo played for Ipswich Town on a one-month loan before signing with Melbourne City FC, which was then named Melbourne Heart FC. He played with the Aussie Citizens for three seasons from 2013-2016 before retiring from professional football.
Best of Luck on your appointment, Paddy. Make it three straight Championship titles!
