Bryan Paul Klug (born 8 October 1960) is an English-born former footballer and coach.


Born in Coventry, Klug began his football career as an apprentice with Ipswich Town. He joined Wimbledon on loan[2] in March 1980, although after subsequently returning to Ipswich he still did not get to play a league game for them.[3] Therefore, in August 1983 he moved to Chesterfield,[3] finishing his Football League career with Peterborough United, before moving to non-league with Chelmsford City.[4]

Klug played in the FA Vase final for Sudbury Town vs Tamworth in 1989, crossing for Dave Hubbick to head home after 7 minutes. The match ended 1-1.

He was the head of Ipswich's academy for a number of years, and then in the summer of 2006 he became Jim Magilton's assistant.[3]

He took over as caretaker manager of Ipswich on 22 April 2009, following the sacking of Magilton.[5] However, a day later, Roy Keane was appointed as manager.[6]

He left his role as the assistant academy manager and head of player development at Tottenham Hotspur to again be the Head of Ipswich's Academy in June 2012.[7]
