Where Are They Now? Jon Dahl Tomasson 

Born in Copenhagen in 1976, Jon Dahl Tomasson made his senior debut for Danish club Køge BK aged 16. The Danish international striker went on to play for Heerenveen, Newcastle United and Feyenoord, where he won the UEFA Cup in 2002. Jon Dahl Tomasson, aka JDT, joined Milan on a free transfer in the summer of 2002. Tomasson spent three seasons in the peninsula, scoring a total of 35 goals in 115 appearances for the Rossoneri. His first season saw him used primarily as an impact sub, where he scored 11 goals in all competitions and helped the Diavolo win the Champions League and Coppa Italia. Ancelotti gave him more game time in the 2003/04 season and Tomasson repaid his faith in him by scoring 12 times in 26 appearances in Serie A. The Rossoneri went on to win their 17th Scudetto that season, with JDT scoring vital goals against both Juve and Inter. His final season with Milan was slightly disappointing, with Tomasson scoring 6 goals in 30 matches in the league in 2004/05. After leaving Milanello, he had spells with Stuttgart and Villarreal, before returning to Feyenoord, where he retired in 2011. Since then, JDT has been involved in football management and is currently assistant manager of the Danish National Team.
