The Danish striker signed a new contract at the club this week, earning a well deserved rewards after scoring 19 goals in all competitions with the U-23’s so far this season.
Here’s what Sorensen had to say when asked about the players he looks up to both now and back when he was kid – revealing how he was a Liverpool fan when growing up in Denmark:
“I think Rondon is a good player. He’s good at holding the ball up, he’s a strong, powerful player and good in front of goal as well.
“Fernando Torres, when he was at Liverpool. I used to support Liverpool before I came here. I watched him growing up and he was just unbelievable.”
If and when he starts training with the first-team on a more regular basis, someone with Rondon’s power and hold up play will give him a great player to learn from – and watching old videos of the Fernando Torres we saw at Liverpool would do him no harm too!
He has a long way to go, but Sorensen really has looked the part in the U-23’s this year.
A loan move in January could be the next step, but for now he’ll be hoping to knock Sunderland out of the Checktrade Trophy at the Stadium of Light tonight!
