Biography


Emil began his youth career playing for Kolding FC in his native Denmark but later moved to city rival Kolding IF and played there until he was picked up by AGF Aarhus. In January 2008 he was promoted to the AGF first team but did not make his professional debut until he moved to French club Lille in the summer of 2008. During this time he earned call-ups to the Danish U21 international side. Loan spells at Belgian side Zulte Waregem and Dutch club FC Nordsjælland followed before he left during the summer of 2011 to sign for Swiss side Lausanne-Sports.

Emil returned to his native Denmark in 2013 where he played for Esbjerg fB and Silkeborg IF over the next four seasons, before moving to KA. He hit form scoring 9 goals in 20 games during his only season with the Icelandic side before he signed for United on a short term deal during the January 2018 transfer window.
