Is he the permanent Denmark manager?

Denmark’s preparation for the Nations League clash are in tatters after an extraordinary row over players commercial rights.

And as a result, Jensen has been given the reigns temporarily for the games against Wales and Slovakia whilst the row is sorted.

DBU elite manager Kim Hallberg said: “We must hold the two international matches to avoid millions of fines and possible exclusion of the national team for several years. On behalf of DBU and Danish football, I am pleased that John Faxe Jensen has taken the hard task of being coach in both matches.”

With none of their stars set to feature, the Danish FA are set to field a team made up of domestic first and second division players.
