THEN: John Jensen’s inability to find the net became legendary during his time at Arsenal, and yet it was he who opened the scoring in the Euro 1992 final against Germany. The goal, it seemed, prompted Arsenal manager George Graham to move for Jensen, although the transfer later became embroiled in the bung investigation that saw Graham sacked. Jensen only scored one goal in his time with the Gunners, against QPR in his 98th match for the club. He had become the subject of the chant, “We’ll be there when Jensen scores” due to his bad luck in front of goal. He left Highbury in 1996, but played on for six years in his homeland with Brondby and Herfølge.

NOW: Jensen was serving as assistant manager to former Denmark team-mate Michael Laudrup at Spanish outfit Getafe until Laudrup quit at the end of the season. Laudrup has now agreed to take over the reigns at Greek side Panathinaikos and is taking Jensen with him.
