Kenneth Emil Petersen (born 15 January 1985) is a Danish footballer. He plays at centre back for OB in the Danish Superliga.

At the start of the 2007–08 season, with Rasmus Marvits having left the club, Petersen became a regular part of the starting 11 in the AC Horsens' first team. After Petersen joined the Danish national league team's 2009 King's Cup campaign, twice playing 90 minutes, Peter Bonde, the assistant manager of Denmark, praised him,[1] and told he had A-national team potential.[2]

On January 7, 2016, it was announced, that Petersen had to find a new club when his contract with AaB expired at the end of the season.[3] Few days later on January 13, it was confirmed that Petersen had signed with OB on a free transfer, and he would start in his new club after the 2015-16 Danish Superliga season. Petersen would be reunited with head coach Kent Nielsen, with whom he has worked together with in AC Horsens and AaB.[4][5]

Det handler om for os at finde det rigtige par. Det er ikke altid de to bedste spillere, der er det bedste par
