Kim Christensen (born 8 May 1980 in Frederiksværk) is a Danish professional football player who plays as striker for Danish second level club AB. Christensen scored a single goal in nine games for the Denmark under-21 national football team from 2000 to 2001.
Christensen started his career with Danish club Lyngby BK. In December 2001, Christensen moved abroad to play for German club Hamburger SV in a DKK 500,000 transfer deal. He had a hard time forcing his way into the starting line-up, and left the club to join Dutch club FC Twente in the summer 2003. At Twente, he found playing time once more.
When his Twente contract ran out in July 2005, Christensen moved back to Denmark on a free transfer to play for Brøndby IF. Following a single year at Brøndby, he moved to league rivals OB in the summer 2006. In August 2007 he transferred to Barnsley.
On 23 June 2008 he signed a two year contract with FC Midtjylland.
Christensen received international clearance and was able to make his debut against Colchester United. He was named as a substitute but came on in the 73rd minute and his shot won a penalty through handball which Brian Howard dispatched. In further matches he continued to come on in a substitute role and scored his first goal for the club in an away game at Charlton Athletic, an injury time equaliser which earned the team a point.
