Brentford defender Mads Bech Sørensen says he is progressing well as he continues to make his return from a knee injury. The 20-year-old picked up the injury ahead of the 2019/20 season and has since been sidelined, but having gone through some extensive rehabilitation, he has joined Neil MacFarlane’s Brentford B for their trip to Scotland to get some game time under his belt to continue his progress.
Mads played the first 45 minutes on Sunday afternoon as Brentford B picked up an impressive 3-1 win over Aberdeen Reserves, and the defender says he was delighted to be back out on the pitch.
He explained: “It was such a nice feeling. I’ve been waiting for three months now so it was great to be back, and it was a great win. I played 45 minutes and I feel really good. The rehab has been great, so I feel fit.
“We played a very good first half where they didn’t have many chances and we created a lot and came out with good energy. All in all, it was a good game from us, of course we conceded one goal from a set piece, but apart from that we had a good game.”
Having come through the match with Aberdeen, Mads will be targeting some more game time with Brentford B to get more minutes under his belt to put him back into first team contention.
He continued: “Now I just need to play some more games for the B team and build my fitness. I got injured the day before the first pre-season game, so it was very frustrating after looking forward to the new season, because I’d played a lot last season towards the end, so it was frustrating. I can’t wait, I’ll give 100% and I’m ready.”
