SØREN JOCHUMSEN APPOINTED HORSENS MANAGER
Former club legend Søren Jochumsen takes over as manager. Søren Jochumsen is known as a legend in AC Horsens playing over 524 matches and scoring 18 goals as goalkeeper.
Many fans have questioned the appointment of Jochumsen who have no managerial experience. "Former manager Bo Henriksen did a fantastic job, but we felt we were lacking the old AC Horsens spirit" director Kristian Nielsen says. After the appointment of Jochumsen, AC Horsens is expected to be playing with a low defensive line, playing with direct passes and relying on set-pieces.
Søren Jochumsen had the following to say: "Of course I expect the fans to find it mysterious appointing me as manager. Bo Henriksen has done an amazing job with a very small transfer budget, and bringing in players from lower divisions and making them Superliga players. Due to the small budget I want to rely on scouting players in lower divisions and using our talented young players. I am impressed with the results Bo has gotten with the team and I wish him all the best in the future."
Søren Jokumsen has already shown his ambition towards the young players of AC Horsens, bringing Mathias Madsen and Jacob Kongsmark to the first team squad from the U19 squad.
