Mortensen was a striker who played for Aarhus Gymnastikforening, Anderlecht, and Norwich City. During his early career, he was voted Danish young player of the year and was capped by Denmark under-21s. After moving to Anderlecht he won a Belgian championship medal and played in both the European Cup and European cup-winners cup.
Dave Stringer signed him for Norwich for a fee of £350,000 shortly after the start of the 1989-90 season. The move generated considerable interest among Norwich supporters, and a large crowd saw him mark his debut for the club's reserves at Carrow Road by scoring a spectacular overhead kick. Mortensen scored on his first team debut in a Zenith Data Systems Cup match against Brighton but was unable to maintain his impressive start. An injury forced him to retire from the English game in 1991. He returned to Aarhus, where he won a Danish Cup winners medal in 1996.
