Married life and kids

Ann-Louise has been happily married to her husband, Henrik Borresen. Together, they welcomed Mikkel on the 3rd of July, 2000, in Jyllinge

They also have an elder son, Lasee. Her husband became Mikkel's first coach. Mikkel was eight years old when he started playing football. 

Mikkel told the Guardian that his father was tough on him. 

He had to train a bit more than others because his father wanted to become a professional himself, but he is happy that he taught him so much.

Ann-Louise, in an interview with The Athletic, said if not a footballer, her son would be in the banking field, explaining that he was good with numbers and people at his school used to call him "The Bank Manager." 


Her son, Mikkel, is 23 years old.

Mikkel's football journey

Mikkel started playing football at a very young age. His father put football on his feet as soon as he could walk. 

He played in his hometown, Jyllinge, where his father coached him for eight years. 

He then got scouted by Nordsjaelland at the age of 12, and that was when he started taking football more seriously. 

According to Mikkel, he didn't realize he was going to be a professional until he became a senior player at 17, making his senior debut for Nordsjaelland.

As a first-year player at U17, he had a rough time where he played football the least and he thought he had a lot of issues. 

Having to play the least and with the older players made him think if he wanted to play more. In his second year, he became the club's best player. 

After his unofficial debut against Vejgaard in a Danish Cup, everything went so fast that he barely believed himself. “It’s a sacrifice, but it’s paying off”, Mikkel said.

After three seasons in the first team, he joined Italian Serie A club Sampdoria in February 2020. He scored his first Serie A goal in a 3-0 win over Lazio

He then signed a five-year deal with Bretford for a €15 million fee in August 2022.

Mikkel has a nickname

He was the youngest first-teamer, so they nicknamed him “IL Ragazzino,” which means The Little Boy.

Her son's impressive performance at Euro made him a star

Mikkel's impressive performance in the Euro 2020 made him a star which is indeed one of his breakthrough performances.

He became the youngest Danish player to score at the European championship after scoring a 4-1 win over Russia in the UEFA Euro 2020

In the semi-final, he scored the first goal against England. Although Denmark lost 2-1 after extra time, his outstanding performance was commendable.
