Kasper Hjulmand (born 9 April 1972) is a Danish football manager and a former player.

Career[edit]

Hjulmand began his career with Randers Freja in 1987 where he played four years, and then signed with Herlev IF in the winter of 1992. He played with Herlev IF two seasons and then moved to B.93 in the winter of 1995.[1] After three seasons with B93 at the age of 26 Hjulmand was forced to retire as a football player due to a knee injury.[2]

Coaching career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Hjulmand became head coach of Lyngby from 1 January 2006[3] until 7 July 2008 when he became an assistant coach with FC Nordsjælland.[4] He was named the successor of Morten Wieghorst at FC Nordsjælland taking over from 1 July 2011[5] until 18 May 2014[6] when he had his final match as head coach of Nordsjælland; a 2–2 draw against Brøndby.[7] Nordsjælland won their first Danish championship with Hjulmand as head coach.[8]

FSV Mainz 05[edit]

On 15 May 2014, Hjulmand was confirmed as Thomas Tuchel's successor at 1. FSV Mainz 05 for the following season.[6] His first two matches in charge was in the Third qualifying round of the Europa League. In the first leg against Asteras Tripoli, Mainz won 1–0,[9] and in the second leg, Mainz lost 3–1 and they got knocked out of the campaign.[10] Then Mainz were knocked out in the first round of the DFB Cup after losing to Chemnitzer FC in a shoot–out.[11] In his first eight league matches, Mainz were undefeated and in third place.[12] After this, Mainz had won only one of their 13 matches and dropped down to 14th place.[12] At this point, on 17 February 2015, he was sacked.[13] His final match was a 4–2 loss to Borussia Dortmund.[14]

Return to Nordsjælland[edit]

On 15 December 2015, it was announced that Hjulmand would return as manager of Nordsjælland as of 1 January 2016.[15] Hjulmand managed to get the team back on track and the club finished 9th in the 2015–16 Danish Superliga. In the following two seasons he led Nordsjælland to a 6th and 3rd place. In January 2019 Hjulmand was linked with RSC Anderlecht, but Nordsjælland wanted a compensation tha Anderlecht did not want to pay and instead Fred Rutten was appointed.[16] Following the failed contract with Anderlecht Hjulmand announced that he would leave Nordsjælland in the summer of 2019 at the end of his contract.[17]

On 25 March 2019 Hjulmand left Nordsjælland by mutual consent after having secured a spot in the Championship round of the 2018–19 Danish Superliga.[18]
