Blackburn - Jon Dahl Tomasson
After a six-month hiatus, former Danish national team player Jon Dahl Thomasson has been named coach again. Football club Blackburn Rovers, three-time English champions currently a member of the Championship, hired Jon Dahl Thomason, who will be the team's new head of coaching staff.
The Dane was born in Copenhagen and has a very rich playing career behind him. He left the deepest mark in Feyenoord, he was also excellent in Milan, and he even had one episode in England, i.e. in Newcastle United. It is worth mentioning that he has made 112 appearances for his national team, making him the fifth most capped player for Denmark. Only Eriksen, Kjaer, Rommedahl and Peter Schmeichel are ahead of Thomason. As a player, he also won the Champions League with the Rossoneri. He will be joined at Ewood Park by assistant coach Remy Reynierse.
As for his coaching career, he started his coaching career where he finished playing, in the Netherlands. He led Excelsior and Roda, before taking over the Malmo team with which he was twice the champion of Sweden (2019, 2020). He succeeded Tony Mowbray at Blackburn. The goal of the former English champion is to return to the Premier League. "I am really proud and excited to take over as head coach of Blackburn Rovers, a club with a rich tradition and great ambition," said Jon Dal Thomason. As a football player, he won the Champions League with Milan, and he also played for Koge, Heerenveen, Newcastle, Feyenoord, Stuttgart, Villarreal and again Feyenoord, where he ended his playing career in 2011. The contract with Blackburn was signed until June 2025. It will be extremely interesting to follow Rovers next season
