Ariël Jacobs (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈaːriˌjɛl ˈjaːkɔps]; born 25 July 1953) is a Belgian former footballer last manager of Ligue 1 side Valenciennes FC

Managerial career[edit]

Jacobs became new manager of FC Copenhagen in June 2012 following Carsten V. Jensen's resignation.[1] His first season as manager of the club was a success and he led the club to the Danish Superliga-title in the 2012-13 season.[2]

On 21 August 2013 Ariël Jacobs was sacked as manager of FC Copenhagen as he failed to win in his first five games in the league.[3]

On 14 October 2013 Jacobs was appointed manager of Valenciennes FC.[4] He failed to secure the team from relegation following the 2013-14 Ligue 1 and he therefore left the club in July 2014.[5]
