Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has been appointed the new head coach of English League One side Burton Albion.

The former striker has been out of work since leaving Northampton Town back in 2018, but he is now back in management.

Burton Albion has confirmed the appointment of Hasselbaink, who is now in his second spell in charge of the club.

The 48-year-old was first appointed head coach of the club back in 2014 but left a year later to take charge of QPR.

Hasselbaink told the club’s official website, “Burton Albion is a club which is very close to my heart and a really special club for me and my family.

“The job is totally different from the first time, but we are coming in to try as quickly as possible to get us up the league and keep ourselves in League One – that’s our aim and first and foremost that’s what we will be trying to do.”

Burton Albion currently sits bottom of League One and six points from safety.
