Picture of the 1.99 m (6 ft 6 in) tall Danish/German centre back of Southampton

Born to a Danish father and German mother, in the Copenhagen district of Hvidovre, the young man had football lineage in his mother's side of the family with grandfather Hannes Schröers and uncle Jan Schröers who played Fortuna Düsseldorf and Bayern 05 Uerdingen respectively. He started his youth career in Denmark and had spells in the academies of FC København and Brøndby IF but moved to Germany to sign for Bundesliga club 1899 Hoffenheim in 2010. Over 5 seasons with Die Kraichgauer the Danish centre-back made 82 appearances, forming part of a formidable backline that kept the club, who not too long ago were playing in the fifth-tier of German football and were promoted to the Bundesliga two years prior to his arrival in 2008, in the Bundesliga. His performances led to a move to one of the more established Bundesliga outfits Werder Bremen in January 2015, after a season-and-a-half with Die Werderaner the Dane would be on the move again as Borussia Mönchengladbach paid in addition of €12 million to secure the services of the defender ahead of their 2016/17 Bundesliga campaign. In two seasons the Dane would feature in all but 2 Bundesliga fixtures and score 7 goals for Die Fohlen. In July 2018 the Weserguard signed a four-year contract with Premier League club Southampton, making 23 Premier League appearances in his debut season as The Saints finished in 16th position in the league table.
