Kasper Hjulmand – Denmark

Former coach of the German first division Mainz 05, 50-year-old Kasper Hjulmand, is the new Danish coach. Hjulmand signed a contract for four years, and he took over the national team in the summer of 2020. This Dane replaced Age Hareide on the bench of the Danish national team, who has led it since 2016 and who led it to the round of 16 at last year's World Cup in Russia.

He took over the team to finish the qualifiers for Euro 2020 and also led the team on the Euro where he led the team to the semi-finals.

Denmark played in the EURO semi-finals for the third time in history and also went to extra time for the third time. But unlike in 1992 and 1984, this time they did not last till the penalty shootout and suffered their second defeat, after Spain in 1984. Nevertheless, the greatest success of Danish football will remain in 1992, when then the current champion Holland was first defeated in the semi-finals after a better penalty shootout, and then in the final Germany for the European title.

Hjulmand will lead the team on the next World Cup in Qatar where Denmark is in group D with France, Australia and Tunis.

Hjulmand spent his short career as a player in Denmark. He played as defender but he was forced to end his career due to a injury. Then he focused on coaching and started his career as manager also in Denmark in Lingby. After that he was assistant manager in Nordsjaelland before he took over as manager. In 2014-15 season he was appointed as manager of Bundesliga side Mainz and there he had amazing start 8 matches without a defeat. Unfortunately, their form dropped and Hjulmand was sacked and he returned to Nordsjaelland before he was appointed as national team manager.

He proved himself on the big stage at Euro 2020 leading the team to the semi-finals and playing attractive and interesting football.

“This is a huge disappointment. We were so close to the final, but various circumstances during the match made it impossible for us to take that final step. It's amazing what the guys have done. Incredible power is in them. They play football in a fantastic way. We attacked, scored goals and showed ourselves in the right light. The players gave everything they had, on and off the field” - said Hjulmand.

He will now have chance to make even greater success with the national team in Qatar on the World Cup.
