Copenhagen. Strange, sad and big.
The day is all three things for Jacob Neestrup, who on Tuesday was officially promoted from assistant to new head coach at FC Copenhagen following the dismissal of Jess Thorup.
– I have enormous faith that I can solve this. I am a clear and distinct coach. I know what I want and I know what I don’t want, says Neestrup at a press conference in Parken in Copenhagen.
The first goal for Neestrup is to rectify FCK’s fluctuating results and improve the game on the field.
– As the responsible head coach, it is about stabilizing the level now. We have played well at times, in periods and halves of games.
– But when we have been bad, we have been far too poor. It must be lifted, and action must be taken now, he says.
Right now, Randers FC is in first place in the Super League after ten games. FCK is ten points behind in ninth place.
– It is crucial for players and staff that when we meet back on the first day of training after the Christmas break, we have first place within reach, states Neestrup.
He expects to play 14 games before the Christmas break, and most of them must be won. This has not been the case until now, with six out of ten games in the Superliga being lost.
– Now it is me who is sitting in the hot seat, and that means that of course we cannot go off on the same tangent as we did in the autumn. It is self-explanatory.
– It is important for me to stand firm. We have eight Super League games until the Christmas break. I also know we have four great Champions League games and hopefully two cup games before we go on holiday.
– We must be clear and recognizable. We can contribute more in the matches and take the initiative. Especially against opponents who, with all due respect, are worse than ourselves, says Neestrup.
He has been given a contract as FCK coach until the summer of 2026.
