Roda JC’s technical director Leon Vlemmings told the official site, “I think we are making the right choice with attracting Jon Dahl Tomasson. He is a young coach with a wealth of experience as a professional footballer.

“I also know he is a hugely talented, passionate and enthusiastic trainer, which in our opinion, fits within our outlined profile perfectly.”

Tomasson represented, Newcastle United, AC Milan, Feyenoord, and Villarreal among others in a successful career, where he also earned 112 caps for Denmark, netting 52 times.

His career as Roda JC coach begins with a trip to Heerenveen on the 18th of January, while his first task will be to bolster his ranks in the January transfer window.
