Jens Bangsbo is a Professor at the University of Copenhagen. He has many scientific publications, and is well know for his role in developing the Yo-Yo series of fitness tests. He is also one of the world's foremost experts in soccer training. In the field of soccer, he is an accomplished coach, instructor, author and player. He had a stint as the assistant coach for Juventus FC, where he helped contribute to technical, tactical and fitness training for the team. And recently he consulted for AEK Athens, where he supervised tactical aspects and individual development for the highly successful club.
