Cardiff City’s Andreas Cornelius cleaned house at Monday evening’s Danish Football Awards, held in the Capital City of Copenhagen.
The Denmark international scooped the ‘Superliga Player of the Season 2012/13’ and ‘Talent of the Year’ gongs, following a breakthrough season for FC Copenhagen last term. Tottenham’s former Ajax forward Christian Eriksen was voted as Danish Player of the Year.
Speaking at the event, Andreas said: "I'm sincerely happy to receive these two prestigious here in Denmark for a season that made me a part of the Danish Championship team with FC Copenhagen, allowed me to make my debut in the Danish National Team and helped to earn me a Premier League contract with Cardiff City.
“Injury has kept me out of action for the start of the season at Cardiff, though the awards this evening make me even more determined to make a strong comeback on the field in the near future. I’m looking forward to making a big contribution for Cardiff City.”
Bluebirds Boss Malky Mackay referenced Andreas’ proposed comeback from injury in last Friday’s media conference in Cardiff, citing positive news for Bluebirds fans regarding one of the Club’s key summer signings.
“Andreas is now back in full training and trained with us this past week which is great," said the Manager. He’ll probably get some minutes in a friendly for us in the middle of next week, which will be the start of him getting back into football again.
“It’s been a nasty injury that Andreas has had to deal with, we’ve needed to be very careful with it, but now there’s more than light at the end of the tunnel.
"We’ll see how he gets through that friendly game, but the intention is he’ll gradually become involved again now which is obviously something he’s desperate to do."
We offer our sincere congratulations to Andreas and look forward to seeing him back in a Bluebirds shirt in the very near future. Our thanks also to Lars Berendt, Media Director of the Danish FA, for providing reaction and photography from the ceremony.
