Where is Matt Jansen now?

After exploding onto the scene in the mid-nineties with Blackburn Rovers, Matt Jansen’s career took an unfortunate turn when he was involved in a near fatal motorcycle accident.

Although Jansen made a full recovery from his injuries, he was unable to replicate his form and eventually moved down the leagues, finishing his career at non-league Chorley in 2013.

After working as former Blackburn team mate Garry Flitcroft‘s assistant for five years at Chorley FC Jansen was promoted to manager when Flitcroft left the club in July 2015. 

In his first season at the club Jansen guided the team to a respectable eighth position in the league, seven points off of a play-off position.

In May 2016, Jansen was part of a winning all star PFA team which represented CitiBank in the Hong Kong Sevens Masters Tournament.
