Mogens Krogh (born 31 October, 1963 in Hj√łrring, Denmarkmarker) is a Danish retired professional football player who is currently the goalkeeper coach for the youth teams of Br√łndby IF. In his active career, Krogh was the first choice goalkeeper of Br√łndby from 1991 to his retirement in December 2001, playing 464 first team matches, and Mogens Krogh also played 10 matches for the Denmark national football team.

Biography

Krogh started his career at small clubs Horne KFUM and T√•rs Ugilt, before playing in the topflight Danish 1st Division for Ikast fS. In 1991, the Danish champions from the two years prior, Br√łndby, sold their first choice keeper Peter Schmeichel, and Mogens Krogh was bought as a replacement. Br√łndby did not initially find the success they sought, though Krogh would prove his worth in the domestic league. In the 1995-96 Danish 1st Division (now called the Superliga) season, Br√łndby was trailing AGF in the league. In the direct match-up of the two teams late in the season, Br√łndby was losing 2-3 when Krogh went into the attack at a corner kick, and headed the ball in goal for the 3-3 result that spured Br√łndby on to make a comeback and win the season title.

On the international scene, Mogens Krogh played 66 matches for Br√łndby IF, including highlights like the game against CD Tenerife in the 1997 UEFA Cup, when Krogh saved a penalty kick in a game Br√łndby won 1-0. One of his best games was the UEFA Champions League 1998-99 match against Bayern M√ľnchen which Br√łndby won 2-1, and Mogens Krogh was subsequently named 1999 Br√łndby IF Player of the Year.

For the Danish national team, Mogens Krogh stood in the shadow of clear first choice keeper Peter Schmeichel, but Krogh was a stable understudy who was selected in the Danish squads for the 1992 European Championship (Euro 1992) and Euro 1996, as well as the 1998 FIFA World Cup without playing a single match. He was one in a trio, also counting Lars H√łgh and Peter Kj√¶r, who took turns in being first reserve for Schmeichel. Krogh would, however, shine in the King Fahd Cup 1995, when he came on as a substitute and saved two penalty kicks in the semi-final against Mexico before playing the 2-0 win in the final against Argentina.

Following his retirement as a player in 2002, Krogh got a job in the public relations department of Br√łndby IF. After three years in the job, Krogh decided in December 2005 to quit his job and leave the club, citing he wanted new challenges and only wanted to work in a football club if he had direct contact with the sporting aspect. One month later it was revealed that Mogens Krogh was hired for Br√łndby as a coach for the young goalkeepers in the club, working under head talent scout Kim Vilfort, one of only three people to have played more matches for Br√łndby than Mogens Krogh.
