Playing career

He spent most of his playing career with his hometown team, Feyenoord, between 1965 and 1980. At Feyenoord, Jansen won four League Championships, one Dutch Cup, and one UEFA Cup. He also won the European Cup in 1970 when Feyenoord defeated Celtic 2-1 in Milan. He also won 65 international caps with the Netherlands and played in both of the Dutch sides that reached the 1974 and 1978 World Cup Finals.

Jansen signed for the American side Washington Diplomats in 1980, but after playing 27 games for them, he returned to the Netherlands to sign for Ajax, on the advice of Johan Cruijff, who played together with Jansen at the Washington Diplomats. Jansen would play as libero and fill a gap in the Ajax defence after the departure of Krol in the summer of 1980. By November 1980, after 13 rounds of the Eredivise Ajax were 8th, by the end of the season they had picked up form and finished as runners-up behind AZ and in front of FC Utrecht. The next season Ajax went on to win the Eredivise with Jansen in the team. Feyenoord fans didn't like former player Jansen playing for their main rivals Ajax. On his Ajax debut (which, incidentally, was away to Feyenoord. Ajax lost 4-2) a snowball was thrown at his eye and Jansen had to leave the field for treatment. Jansen stayed at Ajax until summer 1982, after which he returned to the Washington Diplomats for one more season, before retiring from playing in summer 1983.

Managerial career

He began his management career at his old club Feyenoord, where he worked as a coach, and then as assistant manager, between 1983 and 1987. After a season as manager of Belgian club SC Lokeren, he was appointed as Technical Director at second division SVV, where he won the league alongside his manager - future Rangers manager Dick Advocaat.

In 1991, he returned to Feyenoord as manager, winning the Dutch Cup in 1991 and 1992 and taking them to the semi-finals of the European Cup Winners Cup in 1991/92. He became Technical Director in 1992, with Hans Dorjee being appointed as manager, but Dorjee became ill and Jansen took over as manager again. Dorjee later resigned and was replaced as manager by Jansen's old teammate, Willem van Hanegem. Feyenoord won the Dutch Championship in 1993 and the Dutch Cup again the following season, but after a dispute with the executives of the club, Jansen left to work as assistant manager of Saudi Arabia alongside Leo Beenhakker. Between 1994 and 1997 he also managed Japanese side Sanfrecce Hiroshima.

On 3 July 1997, Wim Jansen was appointed as Head Coach of Celtic, replacing the sacked Tommy Burns. He went on to guide them to their first League Championship in 10 years, ending Rangers attempt to win 10 consecutive Championships. Yet, despite winning the League and the League Cup in season 1997/98, Jansen left the club less than 48 hours after the title was secured with a 2-0 home win over St Johnstone due to a personality clash with General Manager Jock Brown. His most notable transfer was the signing of Henrik Larsson from Feyenoord.

At the beginning of the 2008/2009 season Jansen took up the position of assistant to the head coach of the Feyenoord first team, Gertjan Verbeek.
