Daramy gains Danish citizenship

F.C. Copenhagen player Mohamed Daramy can now call himself a Danish citizen after the Hvidovre Municipality held the citizenship ceremony at rådhuset on Monday.

“I'm very happy, this is a big thing," Daramy told FCK.dk.

"My mother has fought for me and my siblings to have the right to Danish citizenship. I can see how happy my mother and the rest of my family are, and that makes it extra special."

In addition to Danish citizenship, there was also fresh news from the DBU as Talent Development Manager Flemming Berg arrived with a national jersey and announced that Daramy has been selected for the next national team meeting, for either the U-21s or U-19s.

“Standing there with the national team jersey is great," Daramy said.

"I was quite surprised and pleased to know that I will be allowed to be called up next time. After all, it has been weird to see my teammates go away to international matches while I stay home.”

The FCK squad will resume training on Monday to being preparations for the spring season, where we will compete in the 3F Superliga, the UEFA Europa League and the DBU Cup.

“I'm looking forward to getting started with the spring season," Daramy added.

"We have to go out and hunt for maximum points so we can have a great end to the campaign."
