Career statistics

In his youth, Jakobsen changed his name from Jan Ivar to Jahn Ivar. He later stated that he changed his name because his idol, Norwegian singer Jahn Teigen, wrote his first name with an h.[2]

Jakobsen successfully ended his professional career at Rosenborg by winning the Norwegian double in 1999. He is now working as a sports reporter at the Norwegian TV channel TV 2.

In 1994, Jakobsen returned to Rosenborg, and became a part of Rosenborg's better than expected performances in UEFA Champions League tournament. He then played for Norway in the 1998 World Cup, where they made the second round.

After the Norwegian 1990 season, Jakobsen was transferred from Rosenborg to the Swiss club BSC Young Boys, and during the next four years hr played for several different European clubs in Switzerland, Germany and Belgium.

In 1988, Jakobsen was transferred to Rosenborg, and after a successful season – winning the Norwegian double and becoming the Norwegian topscorer – he got his first cap for Norway. At Rosenborg he became well known as a high quality winger/striker.

During the very early years of his career, Jakobsen played at Junkeren and Grand Bodø, two minor Norwegian clubs in the town of Bodø. Mini's actual professional career as a footballer started at the well-known Norwegian club Bodø/Glimt. When he arrived at the club, Bodø/Glimt played in the second division (the second highest division in Norway at the time), but did gain promotion in 1986. In the Norwegian first division, Bodø/Glimt and finished at eighth and seventh place in the 1986 and 1987 season.
