He is nicknamed Ice Man and Lake (the literal meaning of the abbreviation of his surname )[3]

Club career

Early career

Born in Copenhagen, Sørensen began playing football with hometown clubs Roskilde KFUM and FC Roskilde before joining Lyngby in 2007. After breaking into the first team, he was awarded with a contract until 2013.[4]


Sørensen officially signed for Nicola Legrottaglie, Sørensen made his first start alongside Leonardo Bonucci in the centre of defense. In that match, The Old Lady defeated Cesena 3–1.

In the next match, right back Marco Motta was suspended and Sørensen replaced him against A.S. Roma. From that match onwards Sørensen continued to feature for the club at right back, and even managed to maintain a starting position for much of the second half of the season ahead of Motta and the Czech international, Grygera. On the long awaited Derby D'Italia between Juventus F.C and F.C. Internazionale Milano he notably played the full ninety minutes and silenced Samuel Eto'o in an astounding performance, in which he also made the assist for the only goal of the game.

On 10 May 2011, Sørensen had signed an additional 4-year contract with Juventus. During the 2011–12 Serie A season, Sørensen found little space in the Juventus first–team under new head coach, Antonio Conte. He was thus sold on a co-ownership deal to fellow Serie A club, Bologna during the winter transfer market in order to gain regular first–team playing time.


On 17 January 2012, he was officially sent to Bologna in a co-ownership deal for €2.5 million.[8] Despite making just 3 league appearances for his new club during the remainder of the 2011-12 Serie A campaign, the young defender became an integral part of his club's first team throughout the 2012-13 Serie A season, after they had renewed the co-ownership agreement with Juventus.[9]

On 20 June 2013, his co-ownership deal with parent club Juventus was renewed once again, and Bologna continued to hold his registration for the 2013–14 Serie A campaign that had ultimately ended in relegation for the Emilia-Romagna–based club after they had finished 19th in the Serie A standings.

Return to Juventus

On 20 June 2014, Sørensen was re–signed on a permanent basis by Juventus after the club announced that an agreement had been reached for the outright purchase of the Danish defender.[10]

In August 2014, Sørensen started training with English side Leeds United ahead of completing a loan move to the club, however the move collapsed after a disagreement between the player's agent and Leeds owner Massimo Cellino and he returned to Juventus.[11]

Hellas Verona

Sørensen officially signed for Hellas Verona on 29 August 2014, on a one year loan deal.[12]

International career

Sørensen has been capped 4 times for the Danish U17 team, twice against Portugal,[13][14] and twice against Greece.[15] He also played once for the U18 team in an unofficial friendly (against Bavaria) and against Romania U18 as an unused sub.[16] He was a part of the Danish squad for the UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship, but he did not play in any of the three games in the group phase due to injury, where Denmark were knocked out.
