Hasselbaink returns to take charge of Burton Albion

Former Chelsea and Leeds striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has been reappointed manager at Burton Albion.

Hasselbaink returns to Burton five years after leaving for QPR.

Speaking to the club after his reappointment, Hasselbaink said: "It's great to be working with Ben Robinson again. We had a really good working relationship last time and hopefully we can get that back on track.

Burton Albion is a club which is very close to my heart and a really special club for me and my family.

“The job is totally different from the first time, but we are coming in to try as quickly as possible to get us up the league and keep ourselves in League One - that's our aim and first and foremost that's what we will be trying to do.

“We know there is enough quality in the playing squad but that's not reflected in where we are in the table so there is a lot of hard work to be done."
