Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink ends career

Dutch striker Jerrel Hasselbaink has made an end to his career, after an ongoing conflict with Cardiff City.

The 36-year-old, better known as ‘Jimmy Floyd’ Hasselbaink, wanted to continue his career at Cardiff but the Welsh side had different plans and claimed to have the right to end the cooperation.

In 1999 and 2001, representing Leeds and Chelsea respectively, Hasselbaink claimed the Premiership top scorer’s title.

The forward also played 23 games for the Dutch national team, and scored nine times.
