On 27 September 2015, Valentin got his Superliga debut in a game against AGF, who FCN won 2-0, where he came on the pitch in the 93th minute, replacing Oliver Thychosen.[3] During the 2016/17 season, Valentin became a key player for FCN and the U21 national team.

In November 2018, Mads changed his shirt name from his nickname Valentin to his middle name Valentin to honor his family.[5]
