Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink

Where is Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink now?

After retiring from playing in 2008 after a successful Premier League career with Chelsea and Middlesbrough, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink made a move 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 had a largely unsuccessful spell and was sacked but Hasselbaink stayed on in his role.

In January 2013 Hasselbaink left his role at Nottingham Forest after manager Sean 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.

Since leaving Queens Park Rangers, Hasselbaink has been working in the media as a pundit for television channels such as Sky Sports and ITV.
