From leaving family and friends to move to Stoke aged 16, to assisting Peter Crouch’s final ever Premier League goal two years later – Lasse Sorensen has fulfilled a lot of his dreams very early in his career.
The 23-year-old is pleased he made the difficult decision to leave Denmark as a young lad and is proud of his achievements to date.
“It was quite a tough decision to make at the time because I was only 16,” he recalls, “But when your dream is to play football and nothing else, it’s something you have to do.
“It was a good opportunity for me to move to Stoke and I had the backing of all my family and friends so I moved over and I’ve loved every second and never felt homesick which I think shows how much I’ve enjoyed it.”
Having bounced around a few English cities during his time in the country, the Dane is enjoying life in Lincolnshire and is full of compliments for the city and the Imps supporters.
He added: “I love living here. I have lived in a few different places now and Lincoln is definitely my favourite. I enjoy going into town after training or on my day off for a coffee or something, and it’s just got a very good vibe.
“It’s a little out the way of everything else but it has everything you need. It’s laid back and relaxed but there is still plenty to do.
“Sometimes when I walk around with my blonde hair, people occasionally recognise me. Whenever they come up to me, they’re always very positive and polite and I love meeting new people.”
