Kasper Kusk Vangsgaard (Danish pronunciation: Danish pronunciation: [kʰæs'b̻ɐ kʰusg̊],born November 10, 1991) is a Danish professional footballer playing as a winger for Danish Superliga club FC Copenhagen. He is the son of former AaB manager and player and current Vendsyssel FF manager Søren Kusk.


Spending the earliest part of his career at local club Gug Boldklub he moved to AaB at the age of 14.


He made his first team league debut for AaB in a 0-2 home loss against Esbjerg fB August 21, 2010, coming on as a substitute in the 80th minute.[1] His breakthrough into the AaB starting eleven came in the spring of 2012, where he made 11 appearances and scoring 1 goal.

His good form in the 2012-13 season was rewarded with an extension of his contract,[2] a call-up to the Danish national team and interest from European clubs, including Crystal Palace, Anderlecht and Lille.[3][4]

He was voted as the league profile of the fall 2013 in the Danish Superliga by the leagues managers.[5]

in May 2014, Kusk and AaB won the Danish Superliga and the Danish Cup. Kusk scored 12 goals and created 8 assists in the league.

On June 10, 2014, it was confirmed by the president of FC Twente, Joop Munsterman, that the club was discussing a transfer of Kusk.[6]

F.C. Copenhagen[edit]

On May 14, 2015, it was confirmed that Kusk went back to the Danish Superliga by signed a 5 year contract with F.C. Copenhagen.

On September 13, 2015, Kusk scored his first goal in the Danish Superliga for FC Copenhagen. It was against his old club AaB. He chose not to celebrate the goal, because he wanted to show his old team respect.
