Jesper Søgaard net worth $750 thousand
In the mid-1990s, Jesper Søgaard was part of Ole Fritsen’s talented VB team, which secured Vejle Boldklub a resurrection in Danish top football in the form of promotion to the Superligaen, silver medals in the 1996/1997 season and two UEFA Cup participations.
Thomas Gravesen, Peter Graulund, Alex Nørlund, Kaspar Dalgas and Jesper Søgaard were among a litter of talented players who had played together in Vejle since their youth. In this litter, Jesper Søgaard was highlighted as the shining talent on the background of an excellent understanding of the game and especially a sublime technique. When Vejle Boldklub played the UEFA Cup against Spanish Real Betis in 1998, Søgaard was thus highlighted as the only Dane who could match the Spaniards’ high technical level.
When Vejle Boldklub hit an economic and sporting crisis in the late ’90s, Jesper Søgaard switched to FC Midtjylland. Here, however, the elegant technician ran into a serious injury that put an all-too-early end to a promising career.
