Hasselbaink said: “It’s great to be working with Ben Robinson again. We had a really good working relationship last time and hopefully we can get that back on track. Burton Albion is a club which is very close to my heart and a really special club for me and my family. The job is totally different from the first time, but we are coming in to try as quickly as possible to get us up the league and keep ourselves in League One - that’s our aim and first and foremost that’s what we will be trying to do."

Burton Albion Chairman Ben Robinson said: “I’m delighted to welcome Jimmy back to Burton Albion. It’s an appointment I know will excite our fans after the last time he was here which started the most successful period in the club’s history."
