Mathias Zanka sold to Huddersfield Town FC
FC Copenhagen have sold Mathias ‘Zanka’ Jørgensen to Premier League side Huddersfield Town FC.
“Zanka is a true Copenhagener, and he will always be one of us,” says FCK CEO Anders Hørsholt.
“He deserves this opportunity to play in one of the biggest leagues in the world, and as a club we are happy that we again can sell a player to a club at this level.”
FCK manager Ståle Solbakken said: “Zanka has performed steadily at a high international level for a long time, and has shown - especially in the Champions League - that he is ready for a big league.
“We have been planning this for a long time, and we already have Nicolai Boilesen, Michael Lüftner and Mikael Antonsson who can take over in central defence alongside Erik Johansson.”
Zanka has played 275 matches for FC Copenhagen and won five championships, five Danish Cup-titles and played in two Champions League Group Stages.
“FCK will always be my club. It has always been important to me that both me and the club would be satisfied with my next move,” says Zanka.
“I am very grateful to my teammates, the staff and all the other people in the club, and last but not least our fans.
“They have made this possible for me, and I look forward to playing in the Premier League for an exciting club who is making a lot of progress.”
