Emiliano Marcondes has joined Danish Superliga leaders FC Midtjylland on loan until 31st December. The attacker heads to Denmark having featured five times for Brentford this term.
Emiliano arrived at Griffin Park in January 2018 off the back of a prolific season with FC Nordsjaelland in the Danish top flight where he found the net 18 times in 20 appearances. He made his Brentford debut against Notts County in the Emirates FA Cup and went on to play 12 times in the Sky Bet Championship during his first half season with the Club, setting up Sergi Canos for his goal against Hull City on the final day of the season.
Injury delayed his start to last season until November and he played just three Championship matches before again being side-lined after picking up an injury late on during our draw against West Bromwich Albion, a game in which he provided the cross for Lewis Macleod’s equaliser. Returning in March, the 24-year-old made a further ten league appearances, two of them coming from the start.
Brentford FC Head Coach, Thomas Frank, said: “Emiliano has had 18 very unlucky months with us due to the two major injuries which he picked up. It has been very difficult for him to find his rhythm and get up to his top level. This move will be good for him to get his rhythm and confidence back.”
Brentford FC co-Director of Football, Rasmus Ankersen, said: “The competition for the front three positions is very strong. The most important thing for Emiliano at this stage is to play games week in and week out, to consistently hit the level he had before his injury. We believe that FC Midtjylland is a great option for him to achieve this and we will then review his situation again in January."
