Who is Simon Kjær? Simon is a Danish footballer playing for VfL Wolfsburg as a centre-back (next Daniel Agger, IMHO). He was born in Horsens, 26 March 1989. It means he is 21 years old. What a youngster :)
Simon was starting playing football with club near Horsens then joined to Superliga youth team, FC Midtjylland in 2004. He made 19 appearances with no goal. It doesn't matter 'cause he is a defender.
In 2008 he signed to an Italian club, Palermo. He got his Palermo debut on 26 October 2008 as a half-time substitute against Fiorentina in Serie A. His performance won praise despite Palermo's 3-1 home defeat. He scored his first goal on November 2nd against Chievo. He made his 62 appearances and scored 5 goals. He was named 2009 Danish Talent of the Year in November 2009.
On July 8, Simon moved to Bundesliga club, VfL Wolfsburg.
Simon made his debut on Denmark National Under-19 Team at the age of 17. Then he called up to Denmark National Under-21 Team in 2008. Then made his debut defeat 0-4 against Germany. In February 2009 he called up to Denmark Senior National Team by Morten Olsen. He was once again a part of the senior squad for the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification game against Sweden on 6 June 2009.
On 28 May 2010, Denmark coach Morten Olsen announced that the player would be part of the final squad of 23 participating in the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. He was in the starting eleven in Denmark's first two games against The Netherlands and Cameroon.
At least, Simon is a youngster. He needs more experience. He should try higher level. May he'll be Daniel Agger replacement in Liverpool FC someday :)
Just my opinion!
