Former Chelsea striker Hasselbaink reappointed Burton manager


Burton Albion has reappointed former Chelsea and Netherlands striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink as their new manager to replace Jake Buxton, who was dismissed following Tuesday’s 4-3 home defeat by Wigan Athletic, the League One (third-tier) club said.

Hasselbaink was first named Burton manager in November 2014 and guided the team to the League Two (fourth-tier) title before leaving to take charge of Queens Park Rangers a year later.

“Burton is a club which is very close to my heart and a really special club for me and my family,” Hasselbaink said in a statement on the club’s website.

Hasselbaink, who played 23 times for the Netherlands, also held coaching positions with Royal Antwerp and Northampton Town.
