Brentford: Christian Norgaard

Brentford midfielder Christian Norgaard has first-hand knowledge about talent identification in football and speaks about how Yussuf Poulsen convinced him to trial as a teenager. At the time, Norgaard was at Lyngby while Poulsen was playing in Copenhagen. His experience has convinced Norgaard to get involved with Tonsser, an app that provides opportunities to those that have fallen through the system.

“Yussuf played a fantastic game,” Brentford midfielder Christian Norgaard said. “He scored two or three goals and that was it. He joined Lyngby and fought his way through to the first team. The rest is history. If he had not shown up in that game, who knows what would have happened. I am sure he has a lot of resilience and would probably have made it anyway. But it is those small moments in your career that define where you end up.”

It is really impressive, right, and I think it says a lot. You have a number of players who did not get that first contract, they are hanging by a thread trying to make it as a football player. They give it everything in those tournaments, those trials because that is their chance to get that contract somewhere,” he added. “Whereas you play against these youth players at big academies, I am not saying they are thinking they have already made it at 14, 15 or 16, but they are probably already looking at a big contract. Maybe they do not have the same motivation as the Tonsser players.”
