Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink

Where is Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink now?

After retiring from playing in 2008 following a successful Premier League career with Chelsea, Leeds United and Middlesbrough, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink made a move straight into coaching.

After obtaining his UEFA coaching badges in July 2011, Hasselbaink was appointed first team coach at Nottingham Forest working alongside his ex manager at Middlesbrough, Steve McLaren.

McLaren’s Forest side struggled under his leadership and he was ultimately sacked, however Hasselbaink stayed on under new manager Sean O’Driscoll until January 2013 before leaving the club after O’Driscoll was controversially sacked.

Hasselbaink found himself back in football in May 2013 when he took on his first managerial post at Royal Antwerp in the Belgian Second Division.

He guided them to seventh position in his first season but left in 2014 in search of a new challenge in England.

In November 2014, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink started his managerial career in England when he was appointed manager of League Two side Burton Albion.

After an amazing first season at the club, Hasselbaink’s Burton Albion were promoted as League Two champions.

Due to his success at Burton, it was only a matter of time before bigger clubs came calling and he joined Championship side Queens Park Rangers as their new manager in December 2015.

Unfortunately Hasselbaink struggled at Loftus Road and he was sacked in November 2016 after a string of poor results left his side 17th in the Championship and just six points off relegation.

After leaving Queens Park Rangers, Hasselbaink made regular guest appearances as a pundit on television channels such as Sky Sports News and ITV.

In September 2017, Hasselbaink made a return to football as manager of struggling League One side Northampton Town.
