Daniel Norouzi (born 3 January 1992) is a Danish professional footballer who plays as a left back for Næstved BK.[1][2]

Early and personal life[edit]

Norouzi was born in Copenhagen.[3] He also holds Iranian nationality.[4]


Club career[edit]

He came through the youth ranks of Brøndby, and was team captain during his youth team years.[5]

He was promoted to the Brøndby senior team in Autumn 2011, but shoulder and knee injuries prevented his debut.[5] Norouzi found himself third in the left back pecking-order, behind Danish international Thomas Rasmussen and Jan Frederiksen. In the Winter break of the 2011-12 Danish Superliga season, Rasmussen left the club, while Frederiksen sustained an injury, and Norouzi was poised to claim the left back position as his own.[6] Norouzi made his senior debut in March 2012, and played 12 of 15 games in the second half of the 2011-12 Superliga season.[7]

He signed a season-long loan contract with Vejle Boldklub in July 2013.[8][9]

He signed a one-year contract with Iranian club Sepahan on 16 June 2016.[10] However due to Iranian military rules, he could not get the permission to play in the Persian Gulf Pro League. On 7 August 2016, he ended his contract with Sepahan.[11]

International career[edit]

Norouzi made his youth international debut for the Denmark national under-16 football team in September 2007.[12] He played his first competitive international game in the 2009 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship qualifying round in September 2008.[13]

He has played a total of 31 games for various Danish national youth teams, including two games for the Denmark national under-20 football team.[12]

Norouzi was born to Iranian parents and is eligible to play for the Iran national football team.[14]

Playing style[edit]

Norouzi was described by first club Brøndby as an aggressive left back.[5]
