Jesper Gronkjaer

Where is Jesper Gronkjaer now?

A pacy winger during his time in the Premier League with Chelsea, Jesper Gronkjaer will always be remembered by their fans as scorer of the ‘billion pound goal’ – the goal that secured Champions League qualification and ultimately led to Roman Abramovich purchasing the club.

He retired from playing in 2011 after five seasons back in his native Denmark with FC Copenhagen.

Playing over 400 games during his 16-year career he won the Danish Superliga in each of his last three seasons at the club.

He was also an important member of the Denmark international side winning 80 caps and playing in the 2000 and 2004 UEFA European Championships as well as the 2010 FIFA World Cup finals.

Upon retiring from playing Gronkjaer started a new career in broadcasting and is currently a match analyst and co-commentator for Danish television channel TV3Sport.

Away from football he is an investor and board member of Danish online estate agent Go Estate.
