Manchester City scouts join 11 other clubs at Danish Superliga clash – Japanese playmaker tipped as standout player



| Last Updated:


Premier League champions Manchester City had scouting representatives present at a recent Danish Superliga clash that saw a Japanese playmaker standout in the contest.

It is the latest in a long list of scouting missions undertaken by the Premier League champions across the course of the ongoing season, as Manchester City and the wider City Football Group target the next up and coming talents from across the game.

Early April saw Manchester City officials reportedly present at FC Porto’s 3-1 win over Vitória, while international contests have also been monitored, with officials from the Etihad Stadium present at Hungary against Kosovo during the March 2024 international break.

The latest venture from the Premier League giants has seen them venture over to Scandinavia, having had immense success through the likes of Oscar Bobb and Erling Haaland in the last few seasons.

According to the information of Scouts in Attendance, Manchester City had representatives present at the Danish Superliga clash between Brøndby and FC Midtyjlland, that saw the hosts come out 2-1 victors.

Alongside the Premier League champions, the report also points out that rivals Liverpool and Tottenham were present, with representatives from Nantes, Ajax, Stuttgart, Union Berlin, Real Sociedad, Hoffenheim, Genk, Wolfsburg, and Parma also in attendance.

The standout player of the contest was 22-year-old attacking midfield talent Yuito Suzuki, with the Japanese youth international scoring both goals for the hosts, taking his tally to six goals and three assists in his last six games for Bronby.

Suzuki only moved to Brøndby during the last summer transfer window, signing a four-year contract upon finalising an agreement with Japanese second tier club Shimizu S-Pulse following a loan spell with Strasbourg in France.

After making his debut in Denmark in the same month as joining, Suzuki scored his first goal for the club towards the end of September in a 3–0 Danish Cup win over HIK, with his first league goal following just four days later.
