🗣 "I’ve been waiting for three months now so it was great to be back"

Mads Bech Sorensen reflects on his injury return

30 September 2019

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.”
