Chelsea legend Hasselbaink takes charge of Royal Antwerp

Former Chelsea star Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is taking charge of Royal Antwerp.

The Daily Mail says Hasselbaink has made his first steps into management by taking over as the new head coach of Belgian club Royal Antwerp.

The former Chelsea, Leeds and Holland striker was a member of the coaching staff at Nottingham Forest, while studying for his UEFA 'A' coaching license, but left with sacked manager Sean O'Driscoll in January.

Royal Antwerp are in the Belgian second division, and the club say the appointment cements their commitment to achieving promotion to the top flight.

Antwerp have a close association with Manchester United.
