49 year old former Portuguese international Dimas joined Barnsley’s coaching staff over the weekend.

With the appointment of Jose Morais to the position of head coach, Dimas comes in as his assistant and takes the mantle of assistant head coach in our backroom set up.

He has signed an 18 month contract at Oakwell and for the eagled eyed, his appointment comes as no shock as he was in attendance at Oakwell for the game against Sheffield Wednesday alongside Morais himself.

Dimas has significant playing experience, not just from international level, he counts Benfica, Juventus, Fenerbache, Sporting Lisbon and Marseille amongst his former clubs and he carried over 400 senior appearances to his name before he retired and moved into coaching.

He has already begun work alongside Morais on the training ground following his appointment on Friday.
