Andreas is currently working at Malmö Fotbollförening in Sweden and will arrive in West London in November when their season ends. The 37-year-old has worked at Malmö for more than a decade and is currently Assistant Coach at the club which sits third in the Swedish top flight.
Andreas is currently working under former Brentford Head Coach Uwe Rösler and is coming to the end of his second season with the Malmö first team.

I will finish the season with Malmo but then I am really looking forward to joining the team at Brentford in November and fighting for promotion to the Premier League over the coming years.”
Rasmus Ankersen, Brentford FC Co-Director of Football, said: “Andreas is an experienced coach who has helped Malmö to deliver impressive international results over the past few years. I am very pleased that he has accepted to join Brentford in a role that is crucial for our success."
