Makienok on mareridtsår: 'We did not know whether she would survive'

Death, disease, and one long skadeshelvede.

There have been plenty of lows for the Danish footballer Simon Makienok, after he in 2014 changed Brøndby IF out with the foreign countries.

Now he tells openly and honestly about the loss of his mother, his then-wife's fatal illness and the long road to get back on track. It happens in a great interview with Eurosport.

In the first place went to the Italian Palermo, where he quickly smoke out of favor, as the singer, that had brought him to the club, was fired. Because of that, believed the club, he was good enough. In the middle of the sporting problems it happened:

"After I had been there for half a year, I wake up one morning and my phone has rung completely insane many times. It is my brother calling and telling that my mother is found dead at home in Denmark," says a clearly touched Simon Makienok and continues:

"It sounds totally crazy, but so was my partner at the time mortally sick and was hospitalized for several months. We didn't really know if she would survive, or whether she will be “normal” again. It has of course been...yes, some of the toughest in my life."

After the time in Palermo smoke the Danish striker on to the first Charlton Athletic and then Preston North End. Both of the two leases. In 2017 he shifted so permanently to the Dutch club FC Utrecht. Now, it should be.

But the accident hit again Makienok, who angry his knee on to the training. He quickly got the message that he was done before the season.

"I am just thinking, it is a lie. Before I came to Utrecht, I thought already, that I could not be more unfortunate. I can't go through several negative things and bad experiences, so when I get the message told by our doctor, I can just remember that I did not know what to say. I was insanely upset about it," he says in the interview.

It did particularly hurt at the towering attacker, because it was now, his career was on the right track again.

It was here, he would get the feeling he last had had in the time in Brøndby, where he was knocking the goals in. All the while took it too hard on him, that he lived for themselves abroad, even though he had a girlfriend.

Simon Makienok tells in the interview, also, how the ideas in the two-year-long length of injury recovery was many, and that in some periods he was in doubt, whether he ever came to play once again.

At the end of October, he finally saw the comeback on the pitch, which he responded with a goal shortly before full time.

A goal, which got the tears to roll down her cheeks. You can read more about right here.
