Club careerEdit

BrøndbyEdit

After helping Lyngby BK gain promotion to the Danish Superliga, Mikkelsen switched to league rivals Brøndby IF in the summer of 2007. On 21 July 2007, he made an impressive home debut for Brøndby in their match against FC Nordsjælland scoring a goal and also notching an assist a 2–2 draw. He was signed to fill in the right winger spot in a 4–3–3 system, but coach Tom Køhlert and later Kent Nielsen decided to use a 4–4–2 formation which resulted in sparse time on the pitch for the young winger.

NordsjællandEdit

On 18 August 2009, Mikkelsen signed for FC Nordsjælland. In Nordsjælland Mikkelsen won the Danish Cup twice, in 2010 and 2011. In the 2011–12 season, he won the Danish Superliga with Nordsjælland for the first time, which provided direct qualification for the Champions League.

On 26 July 2012, Mikkelsen signed a three-year deal with German outfit SpVgg Greuther Fürth.

RosenborgEdit

On 30 July 2015, he scored a brace in a 3–2 win over Hungarian side Debreceni in the first leg of the Europa League third qualifying round.[1]

On 25 October 2015, Mikkelsen helped Rosenborg win the 2015 Tippeligaen with two rounds left. A month later, Rosenborg secured the double, winning 2–0 in the final of the Norwegian Cup against Sarpsborg 08.[citation needed]

NordsjællandEdit

On 8 January 2016, Mikkelsen returned to his former club FC Nordsjælland signing a two-year deal.[citation needed]
