Frederik Ibsen leaves for Kolding IF
Frederik Ibsen will continue his career at Kolding IF in the Danish First Division.
Ibsen came up through the F.C. Copenhagen youth ranks and signed for Vendsyssel FF, when he reached senior level. He returned to Copenhagen in August 2018 and has since been a part of our goalkeeper team, and made his debut against Esbjerg fB in May 2019.
"Frederik has been a really good guy in our squad with his qualities as a goalkeeper and a teammate," says manager Ståle Solbakken.
"He is always working hard and dedicated, and he has always met our expectations to his role.
"To continue his development, he now needs to play a lot of games, but it is difficult here with the competition we have in the goalkeeper position.
"Therefore Kolding is the right move for Frederik, where he will play at a high level in an ambitious club. We wish him all the best in the future."
On agreeing his move, Ibsen said: "I have really had a great time in FCK, but I miss playing games.
"I see a new opportunity to fulfill my ambitions with the move to Kolding, who is playing in the top of the First Division with an exciting team and setup.
"I will miss the everyday life in FCK, and my dream is to come back one day. But right now, I am looking forward to meet everyone in Kolding and get started."
Everyone at F.C. Copenhagen thanks Frederik for his efforts and wishes him good luck in the future.
