New Man Mads Has Clear Focus On Attack

11 July 2023

Mads Frøkjær-Jensen described himself as a player who likes to “attack, attack, attack” in his first interview as a Preston North End player.

The attacking midfielder is set to join the Lilywhites on a four-year deal for a significant undisclosed fee, subject to international clearance and a work permit.

Mads Frøkjær-Jensen Signs For Preston North End

11 July 2023

Scoring eight goals for Odense Boldklub during the 2022/23 campaign, Mads has a clear focus on how he wants to operate in a North End shirt.

Asked what the fans can expect, Mads said: “Hopefully a player who gives his all every game. I like to press forward; everything I do is forward.

“I don’t like to run backwards too much, also not with the ball. I want to go forward, set up my teammates and press high.

“Attack, attack, attack, and get some assists and goals.”

At 23 years of age and having spent his life in Denmark, it might have been a difficult decision for many to make the move to England.


However, Mads admitted it’s always been a dream of his to do so for the sake of his football career.

He said: “I always said to my family and agent that when I leave it had to be for a club outside of Denmark so it’s just a dream come true.

“I was on vacation in Sicily when I was called up by my agent and I was very excited from the beginning.

“I had a big dream of coming to a new club this summer and England has always been a big dream of mine since I was a small kid, so I’m excited and right now it’s pretty surreal it’s actually happened.

“I’m very happy, it’s much bigger than where I come from so everything’s good. I’m a happy kid.”

With only 32 matches during the Danish Superliga season, the relentless nature of the Championship schedule isn’t something Mads is accustomed to, but something he is looking forward to.

He may have to wait until he can start preparing for the new campaign, though, with the midfielder unable to train with North End until his international clearance and work permit come through.

Mads added: “I’m excited to see how it feels to play all these games, getting used to the body working so much and everything about it is going to be a big challenge but I’m so excited to try.

“The season is still some weeks ahead so right now I’m just excited to get on the field.

“Right now, I feel a bit like a cow in the winter time waiting to get on the grass to be happy.”
