Ulrich Vig Vinzents (born 4 November 1976) is a Danish footballer who plays as a right back. He is currently playing for Ringsted IF.

Club career[edit]

In Denmark[edit]

Born in Ringsted, Vinzents started his professional career at Lyngby Boldklub however with a limited amount of play. He moved on to Køge BK and played there for three seasons before coming back to his old club Lyngby. Back in Lingby Vinzents established himself in the starting eleven and played for four seasons before once again leaving the club, this time to FC Nordsjælland. After a couple of season's at the club he transferred to OB for three seasons before he moved overseas to Sweden and Malmö FF.

Malmö FF[edit]

Vinzents transferred to Malmö FF in 2006 and took a spot in the starting eleven from the start. For the coming five seasons he missed as few as seven games as he was in good form and rid of injuries. For the 2010 season Vinzents showed that he had a good defense as well as offensive skills which he demonstrated frequently by shooting cross balls from the right flank. In 2010 Vinzents finally won his first title as Malmö FF became Swedish champions. Vinzents played 29 out of 30 possible league games and was one of the reasons for the teams successful defence.

Vinzents continued to play for the majority of Malmö FFs matches for the 2011 season with 23 Allsvenskan caps and 45 matches in total. He scored his first and only competitive goal for the club against Jönköpings Södra IF in Svenska Cupen on 11 May 2011. Vinzents signed a new contract on 22 June 2011 to keep him at the club for another season.[1]

After current captain Daniel Andersson decided to focus on his coaching role for the 2012 season Vinzents was given the captain's armband.[2] However as Vinzents had some trouble with injuries throughout the season he only acted as captain for a few matches, most notably in his last match for Malmö FF on 4 November in an away game against AIK. On 1 November 2012 it was announced that Vinzents would leave the club after seven seasons. He was given a farewell ceremony on the pitch at Swedbank Stadion after the last home match of the season against Örebro SK.[3]
