Flemming Broe, academy manager at Midtjylland, commended Malik’s athleticism, technical finesse, and knack for scoring goals, recognizing his potential for significant development in the years ahead.

“Malik is a great talent who has a good athletic package. He is technically skilled and can score goals. At the same time, he has a good winning mentality, and we are convinced that there is something exciting hidden in him,” Broe said.
