Club career

Jensen has played his entire career for Herfølge Boldklub, which later became HB Køge after a merger. At an early age, Jensen was selected for Danish national youth sides, but was subsequently sorted out because of his short stature for a goalkeeper. His height has not been a problem for him since, providing high-level performances for his club.

In his first years in Køge, Jensen acted as a backup goalkeeper to first choice Lars Bjerring. He eventually became first choice in the 2010–11 season, being a part in securing promotion to the Danish Superliga. [1] In 2011, Jensen played every match for his team, being the only HB Køge player to do so.[2]
