Where is John Jensen now?

John Jensen, a cult hero at Arsenal, retired from full time playing in 1999 after moving back to Denmark to take on a player manager role at Herfolge.

After a succesful first season with the club where they won the league he was sacked the following season when they were relegated.

In 2002 he joined Brondby as assistant manager to Michael Laudrup where he stayed for four years before following Laudrup to Spanish side Getafe.

Jensen stayed there for just one season before returning to Denmark again in 2009 when he was appointed manager of Randers. Unfortunately he was sacked after a string of poor results.

In January 2011 Jensen was back in English football when he was appointed assistant manager at Blackburn Rovers working under Steve Kean.

However he left the role just eight months later for reasons unknown and returned to Denmark where he was hired by Brondby as a consultant.

In May 2014 Jensen was appointed as manager of Danish third division side Fremad Amager but left the role in September 2018 to take temporary charge of the Danish national side after a dispute between the Danish football association and the players.
