Ken Ilsø Larsen (born 2 December 1986) is a Danish footballer,[3][4][5][6][7] who is currently a free agent, having left Guangzhou R&F of the Chinese Super League in May 2014.

Career[edit]

Born in Copenhagen, Ilsø started his career at local amateur club Pioneren. His career progressed, and he played for different youth sides in Copenhagen. In 2004, he was signed as a youth player by Dutch side SC Heerenveen, being labelled as one of Denmark's finest talents.

However, Ilsø never managed to break through Heerenveen's reserve team, so he decided to return to Denmark to play for SønderjyskE.[8] His time at SønderjyskE was very successful, scoring 12 goals in 52 league matches for a SønderjyskE side that always feared relegation.[9]

In summer 2009, Ilsø was signed by FC Midtjylland,[10] who ended at the fourth spot in the Danish Superliga the season before. Ilsø has since his transfer been an important player for Midtjylland, for example scoring the decisive goal against Silkeborg IF in the 2010–11 season opener.[11]

In February 2014, Ilsø joined Chinese Super League side Guangzhou R&F, but he left the club after only three months due to a reduction in his playing time.[12]
