Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Emil was born on this date in Kolding, Denmark.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    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.

  • United lost further ground in the Championship title race with an astonishing 6-1 defeat against a Falkirk side who had only managed one previous home victory in the 2017/18 season. It could be argued on the balance of play and chances created that United were even luckier that the defeat was not even heavier, given the way the match developed.

  • United progressed into the fifth round of the Scottish Cup with a 2-0 win over Alloa Athletic. It was the two clubs’ second meeting of the season after their clash in the Irn Bru Cup, but this was a very different United side from the one that faced the Wasps that day. New signing Thomas Mikkelsen went straight into the starting line up to commence his second spell at the club, with Paul Quinn also returning to the starting line-up. They replaced Paul McMullan, who was dropped to the bench, and the injured Tam Scobbie. Another new signing, the French teenager Idris Kadded, also took a place on the bench.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 2 - 3 Livingston

    Three minutes of madness saw Dundee United turn a comfortable 2-1 lead into a 3-2 defeat against Livingston in the first leg of the Premiership playoff semi-final at Tannadice. Although United only had 72 hours to prepare for the game after their victory over Dunfermline, the late collapse certainly could not be attributed to tiredness as late defensive lapses saw United lose a game they had looked in control of.
