Prominent Bosnian sports portal SportSport.ba is reporting that Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink is in talks to take over as a new manager of FK Sloboda Tuzla.
According to the portal, the former Leeds United and Chelsea striker has already held talks with the FK Sloboda board in Los Angeles and then in London. It is understood that Floyd-Hasselbaink will visit the city of Tuzla next week, take a look at the club’s training facilities and sign the deal.
In addition to these reports, the club’s official Facebook page has published the picture of Floyd-Hasselbaink holding the club’s crest pennant.
Newly-promoted and ambitious FK Sloboda are looking for a new manager since they sacked Miroslav Blažević, the man who guided the Croatian national team to quarter-finals in the 1996 European championship and won third place at the 1998 FIFA World Cup.
Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink has been recently linked to the vacant Hibernian jobs.
