Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is confident that he will bring success to Burton Albion no matter what colour or creed he holds.
The 42-year old former Chelsea striker was appointed as the new boss of the League Two club on Wednesday and was absolutely delighted with his first training session in charge on Thursday.
"Since I've been out of work I've been watching a lot of football, and I've watched quite a bit in League Two and League One and also obviously in the Championship, but I'm quite familiar with League Two," Hasselbaink said.
"I've spoken to the players, my target is as high as possible. Gary has done exceptionally well here and we're going to try and push that on and keep the positive vibe that is at the club at this moment in time.
"I'm not going to tell you here that we're going to end at this position or that position but we want to finish as high as possible up the league."
When asked whether or not his colour or race should be an issue, Hasselbaink added: "I have no idea.
"Look I knew the question was coming but for me it's not really that important.
"I just hope and I think the chairman chose me because of what I can bring to the club and that I'm the right man for the job, black, white or whatever."
