His deadly left foot made life difficult for many teams, which resulted in 22 season goals, a selection as the male talent of the year in Denmark and a nomination for the much-admired Golden Boy award.

Today, ‘Andy’ is playing at Bologna in Serie A, where has only added to his game.

He joined the academy at the age of 12 and moved to F.C Nordsjælland at the age of 18 to join with two teammates; Ibrahim Sadiq and Gideon Mensah. Kudus made his official debut for Nordsjælland only three days after his 18th birthday to become the ninth youngest player to start a game with the club. He played from the first minute as a striker, but was replaced in half-time in a game that ended with a 2–0 defeat against Brøndby IF. 

On July 16, 2020, Kudus joined Eredivisie club Ajax for €9 million on a five-year contract. He made his official debut for the club on September 20, in a league match against RKC Waalwijk. Head coach Erik ten Hag subsequently called Kudus as a player with "incredible potential". He continued his strong performances, scoring one goal and providing three assists in his first three appearances.His debut in the UEFA Champions League for the home match against Liverpool on October 21, however, was disastrous. Kudus was subbed out after only six minutes, as he suffered a meniscus injury, keeping him out for several months.

At the age of 11, Mathias Jensen began to train at FC Nordsjælland, while still playing for his childhood club in Kalundborg. As an U15 player, Jensen joined FCN on a regular basis.

Physically, Jensen was not as developed as his teammates, which was why he struggled a bit in the beginning. Things turned around in his second year as an U17 player and he ended his time in the academy as the captain of the U19 team.

Four years after his arrival, Jensen made his debut on the senior squad at the age of 19. And just after he turned 22, he was promoted as captain of the senior squad. In his last season, the midfielder scored 12 goals, contributed with seven assists, won the club's Player of the Year Award, and was named Talent of the Year at the Danish Football Awards.

Mathias’ eternal hard work and dedication took him to Celta Vigo in La Liga, but now he is frolicking at Brentford’s midfield in the English Championship. His performances in England have earned him a spot on the Danish national team. So far, he has four appearances, but hopefully there are many more to come.
