Mads Bech Sorensen said that advice from his Brentford team-mate Marcus Forss pointed him towards AFC Wimbledon.
With Marcus having made such a favourable impression during his loan spell here, Mads was quick to contact his good friend about life at Wimbledon – and the feedback he received was very positive.
“I spoke to Marcus before signing, I just wanted to hear what he thought about the club and what I should be aware of,” said Mads. “I had a really good conversation and he was talking great about Wimbledon, so that’s why I came here. It’s really good to see him, I’ve missed him! We played together in the B team and he’s a really good guy. He’s a good striker and a great finisher. It’s a really good group here. They took care of me and it was a good first training session. It was nice to be here and to train with my new team-mates.”
Scandinavian pair Mads and Marcus have played together on many occasions for Brentford's B team and the first-team. Though being reunited with Marcus was a factor for Mads, he added that it was the right time in his career to make the loan move to Wimbledon.
“Thomas Frank called me and said that Wimbledon could be an opportunity if it was something I wanted to do. I think it’s a good club and it’s a good opportunity for me to go and play. I spoke to the manager here, we had a good conversation, so now I’m here on loan and I’m happy about it. The manager wants me to come here and help the club, do my best, and hopefully help the team to stay in this league.
“Brentford want me to get some game-time and develop because at the moment I’m not going to play that many games. I need regular game-time and it’s time for me to play men’s football. I’m very physical, I’m good in the duels, and I’ve got a good left foot.”
