Denmark Muster Makeshift Squad For Nations League

Simon Kjaer has been critical of the Danish FA

Denmark patched together a new squad and an interim coach on Tuesday to fulfil the national team's obligations for upcoming matches against Slovakia and Wales amid a pay dispute involving its best players.

John Jensen, the former Denmark and Arsenal midfielder, will take temporary charge of the squad that will feature six players from futsal, a five-a-side game usually played on small indoor pitches.

An entirely new squad was required, with Åge Hareide and his players released from worldwide duty after a complete breakdown in negotiations over a new appearance agreement for global players.

Denmark play Slovakia in a friendly on Wednesday, before opening their Nations League campaign on Sunday against Wales, live on Sky Sports.

Denmark will play against Slovakia on September 5 and against Wales on September 9. However, DBU head Kim Hallberg defended the decision by saying it was vital to avoid sanctions from UEFA for failing to field a team. "We know that all players understand that we are looking for a collective agreement for Danish football".

The stand-off is thought to be based around the DBU's desire for more flexible rules about using players in commercial contexts, while the Spillerforeningen wants sponsorship deals to focus on the team instead of individuals. "On behalf of DBU and Danish football, I am pleased that John Faxe Jensen has taken the hard task of being coach in both matches".

It's also expected that manager Age Hareide and assistant Jon Dahl Tomasson will not be taking charge for the upcoming games, with Euro 92 victor John Jensen filling in.

The 38-year-old has been a free agent since the Baggies released him in the summer following relegation from the Premier League. The Northern Ireland global was a free agent after leaving West Brom in the summer.

"So we're happy to stretch our hand again, even though DBU put it away in the first try", the 26-year-old said in a statement on Danish Player Association's website.

The DBU previous year had to cancel a World Cup qualifying match for the women's national team against Sweden, also due to a contract dispute.

Denmark risks being ruled out of the UEFA if it cancels another match.

But the Danish Player Association (Spillerforeningen) have urged the DBU to reconsider and told the governing body that the national squad is willing to play the two games under the terms of their old agreement.

"It is crucial for the future of Danish football". We are prepared to play the global matches this week and then we have time after the matches to negotiate the whole agreement.

The Slovakian FA said its own national team has been harmed by the dispute.
