Andreas Christensen: "It’s wonderful to have such a person on the field, who takes unbelievably good care of us teammates."

Joakim Mæhle: "Simon has been so welcoming of not just me but all the young players who’ve come up through the ranks and he’s also shown it during this championship. "


Simon Kjær: "This I’m going to remember, when I one day talk to my grandchildren about how we stood side by side in this championship, and how we grew as a group. The greatest privilege I have had in my career up to this point has been being captain for the danish national team, leading the boys into war, one might say, every time. The only thing it’s about and has always been about is the team. It will always be foremost, no matter the context."

"The greatest privilege I have had in my career up to this point has been being captain for the danish national team."

Kasper Hjulmand: "He is a rock, and the manner in which he leads this group... I have great respect for it."

Joakim Mæhle: "On top of being a fantastic leader and being a really good person off the field, he is also a top-class football player. So definitely someone I have great respect for."
