Jesper Olsen

Director of Coaching

Football Star Academy

Having played professional football at some of Europe's leading clubs, including Manchester United, Ajax Amsterdam and Bordeaux FC, Jesper's level of experience makes him an excellent role model for young players.  Among his 46 caps for the Danish National Team during his much decorated football career is Jesper's appearance at the 1986 World Cup - Denmark's most successful World Cup campaign to date, as well as two European Championships in 1984 and 1988. 

After his playing days ended, Jesper focused on establishing a new career in football. In 2003 he relocated his family to Melbourne to establish himself as a football coach in Australia. 

After two seasons as an assistant coach at Melbourne City (formely Melbourne Heart), Jesper joined Football Star Academy as its Director of Coaching.
