At Brondby, we had Daniel Agger, who came up from the youth. He had two years in the team, and then we sold him to Liverpool for nearly £7 million, which is a lot of money in Denmark. As a manager, that gives you even greater satisfaction that winning something as a player.
My wife and I have already set up a charity back in Denmark – Fodbold Fonden – and now, through Common Goal, I have a great opportunity to give back in other areas of the world as well.

It was a bit of a shock playing against Millwall.

I was an eccentric teenager in suburban New Jersey, in a town mostly interested in sports, popularity, and clothes. A fan of Jorge Luis Borges, I found a group of Borges scholars from Aarhus, Denmark – perfect strangers – whom I connected to online and immediately became enthralled by the idea of virtual communities.
Tina Fey’s autobiography is very, very funny and very well written. It’s her life story: it’s about how she grows up in New York. There’s no obvious reason why I should enjoy this – I mean, this is the autobiography of a woman in her early 40s in New York. I’m a guy from a small town in Denmark.
We have had such a letter movement on two occasions in Denmark when more than a quarter of the adult Danish population participated. Such an achievement, however, demands a really great effort and also a great deal of money.

Denmark needs change, Denmark needs to move on and Denmark needs my leadership.
Denmark is a country built on a commercial fleet. That’s basically what we have been doing. We’re just a small country of islands, and every family has a sailor. So, in many ways, my father was a sailor before I was born.

When I go to small races in Denmark, it’s what I imagined what F1 would have been like back in the 60s and 70s. After the 70s it became a bit different. But 50s and 60s at least, people were only there because they love it.

Denmark and Estonia both refused to prosecute the Danske Bank case when we filed in 2013.

The day before I was famous in Denmark, nobody looked my way. The day after, everybody wanted to talk to me.
I find Maersk fascinating. It is the Coca-Cola of freight with none of the fame. Its parent company, A. P. Moller-Maersk, is Denmark’s largest company, its sales equal to 20 percent of Denmark’s GDP; its ships use more oil than the entire nation.
We were in love with ‘Mean Streets’ and ‘Taxi Driver.’ We had no idea why nothing remotely like that was done in Denmark.

If the world were an orange with 18 segments meeting at the top (the North Pole), roughly 8 of them would be in Russia, Canada would have 4, Denmark 2, and Norway, Sweden, and the U.S. just one apiece. Only a sliver of Alaska, on the Beaufort Sea, lies above the Arctic Circle.
I’m a filmmaker; I want to make films. I don’t want to sit in a hotel room waiting to make films, and I can control my thing in Denmark; I can make the film I want to make… of course, I have to write a good script, all that, but if I do my job, it will happen.
Denmark can be very small, provincial, and mediocre.
I want to go to Denmark and Scandinavia. We’ve been inundated with their telly recently, and I’ve never been to any of those countries. I really want to get to know the people. I quite fancy living there for a bit if I could take a month off. They just seem like upfront, friendly folk.
Denmark has long been regarded as one of the world’s most attractive nations, for citizens and tourists alike. My own visits there, years ago as a student, were delightful.

I had four seasons with Brondby in Denmark and they were crucial, mentally. The first two seasons there, I score nine goals, then nine goals. Then we get a new coach, Alexander Zorniger. A German guy. The next two seasons, I score 20 then 17.
You know, ‘Viggo’ is a pretty dorky name in Denmark. It’s like ‘Oswald’ or something. It’s a very old Scandinavian name, at least 1,000 years old.

Denmark is, like, the flattest country on Earth.
My father was born in Denmark. He came to this country when he was 12 years old.
If I was misogynist, would I hire a woman as my CEO? Probably not. I grew up in Denmark, for crying out loud. Denmark is probably one of the places where equality is actually fully achieved. Our political system is practically a matriarchy.
I remember a festival we did in Denmark with the Clapton band where you suddenly realize it’s an actual band – and you’re on an equal stage playing music together.
