Nils Nielsen resigns as Denmark women’s national team coach
Nils Nielsen has left his role as the Danish women’s national team head coach after four years, just weeks after winning silver at the UEFA Women’s Euro 2017 Championship.
Nielsen said on the DBU official website (translated by Google):
“I am incredibly proud to have worked with the women’s team for the last four years. On top of a successful qualification and a great achievement at the European Championships, there has been good opportunity for moving even more on the development of women’s football in Denmark – not only in the national team, but overall. It calls for new eyes and powers.”
Danish women’s national team captain Pernille Harder thanked Nils Nielsen for his dedicated work over the last four years (translated by Google):
“On behalf of players, I would like to thank Nils for his work and efforts throughout the years as a coach.”
What the future holds for Nils Nielsen is still unknown, but there are opportunities in several areas ahead.
Nils Nielsen first took over the role of coach for the women’s team in September 2013 after Kenneth Heiner-Møller.
U19 women’s coach Søren Randa-Boldt takes over the helm until the right candidate for the job is found. Former U16 coach Danny Jung entered as temporary U19 coach.
