Carsten Vagn Jensen, colloquially known as Carsten V. Jensen, (born 28 February 1963) is a Danish former professional football player, and current director of football in F.C. Copenhagen.
He started his career with
Næstved IF in 1983. He went on to play for Herfølge BK and B 1903. He moved to Brøndby IF, where he won the 1990 and 1991 Danish championships. When Jensen wasn't selected by Brøndby manager Morten Olsen for the 1991 UEFA Cup semi-finals against Italian club AS Roma, the disappointed Jensen moved back to Næstved IF. In 1993, he was brought to F.C. Copenhagen, Brøndby's local rivals. F.C. Copenhagen reached the 1995 [1 ] Danish Cup final, where Jensen was named man of the match as the club won 5–0 against Akademisk Boldklub. He ended his career in 1998, after a combined 138 games and five goals for F.C. Copenhagen.
In 2006, he left his job as assistant coach in F.C. Copenhagen, to replace
Niels-Christian Holmstrøm as head of sports in the club.
In January 2012, he replaced F.C. Copenhagen's head coach
Roland Nilsson, who was fired earlier the same day. He will continue functioning as director of football, as well. On 25 May 2012 after he failed to secure the [2 ] 2011–12 Danish Championship, it was announced that he would step down as manager and continue only as Director of Football. [3 ]
