Morten Skoubo (born June 30, 1980) is a Danish professional footballer who plays for Roda JC on loan from FC Utrecht. Skoubo's strength on the playing field is most notably his physical strength, height and heading power, which makes him a typical targetman in the attack. He has played four games for the Danish national team and scored a single goal.



Born in Struer, Skoubo played for a number of lower league clubs. He played eight games and scored three goals for the Danish under-21 national team. Skoubo's breakthrough came in the Danish Superliga club FC Midtjylland, when he scored 19 goals in 27 games during the 2001-02 season. When prolific German club Borussia Mönchengladbach wanted him in the team at the start of the next season, Skoubo made the switch. While in Mönchengladbach, he made his debut for the Danish national team on June 11, 2003.

His club career in M√∂nchengladbach never took off and he was loaned out to English team West Bromwich Albion in January 2004. He was back at Gladbach again after six months, having only played two games for West Bromwich. For the Danish Superliga 2004-05 season, Danish Superliga runners-up Br√łndby IF were looking for new strikers, following a season of poor goal-scoring. Skoubo moved back to Denmark in a ‚ā¨600,000 transfer deal.[1]

In Br√łndby he regained his good form from his Midtjylland days, and Skoubo formed a good partnership with Swedish international Johan Elmander, Skoubo playing as the targetman and Elmander playing in a deep-lying role, which was successful in securing the Double for Br√łndby, winning both the Danish Superliga championship as well as the Danish Cup. In his one and a half years at the club, Skoubo scored 29 goals in 63 competitive matches, including 2 goals in 3 matches in the UEFA Cup 2005-06 tournament. In January 2006, Skoubo signed for Spanish club Real Sociedad in a transfer deal worth ‚ā¨2,500,000.[2]

On February 19, 2006, he scored the fifth fastest goal in La Liga history, bagging a goal after just 11 seconds against Valencia CF, even though the game was lost 1‚Äď2.

In August 2008, Skoubo was transferred to Dutch Eredivisie FC Utrecht.
