Mads Albæk (born 14 January 1990 in Roskilde) is a Danish footballer who plays as a midfielder for IFK Göteborg. He has also represented the Danish national under-21 team.

Club career[edit]

Albæk's footballing career started in the small Zealandic club, Gadstrup IF. At the age of 11, he moved to play for Herfølge Boldklub. When playing for Herfølge's youth team, Albæk was on trial at SC Heerenveen from the Netherlands, and later on, he was tested by Tottenham Hotspur from England. His talent was discovered by the Danish Superliga club FC Midtjylland, who brought Albæk through the ranks of their youth academy. Having established himself as a starter in the Midtjylland line-up, Albæk moved to French side Stade de Reims in the summer of 2013. Two years later, in August 2015, Albæk signed a two year-contract with Swedish team IFK Göteborg.

International career[edit]

Albæk has played for various national youth sides, and he was rewarded with the Arla U17 youth prize.
