Where is Jacob Laursen now?

Former Derby County captain and Ram’s Player of the Year Jacob Laursen called time on his career in 2005 after a time playing for Danish first division side FC Fredericia.

Over a 16 year playing career, Laursen racked up over 500 first-team appearances winning the Danish Superliga with both Silkeborg and FC Copenhagen.

He also played for the Denmark national side, representing them on 25 occasions and featuring in the 1996 UEFA European Championships.

After retiring from playing Laursen joined up with fellow former Derby County player Darryl Powell and worked as a senior football consultant at his sports management company but has since left.

In 2015, Laursen was ordered to pay $200,000 plus interest to Jan Gunnar Solli  when he moved to the New York Red Bulls.

He was working as a talent scout and advisor to the club at the time and the money was the sign on fee that Solli should have received.

Laursen was last seen working as a football pundit on Danish television station TV3+’s coverage of the English Premier League
