Simon's football career began in 2007 when he was at Midtjylland, the Danish team whose youth ranks he came through. He made a big early impact in the senior game, so much so that Palermo signed him in February 2008. He was at the Rosanero for two seasons, during which he was named Danish footballer of the year in 2009. He then moved to German side Wolfsburg in the summer of 2010 before a one-year loan spell in Italy with Roma followed in 2012. He then played for Lille in France and Fenerbahce in Turkey.
In the summer of 2017, Sevilla came calling. He spent two seasons at the Spanish side prior to making a switch to Atalanta at the start of the current campaign and featuring on six occasions for La Dea, for whom he played both Serie A and Champions League football.
He made his international debut in June 2009 and has been a key player in the Danish rearguard since then, winning 95 caps and taking part in two World Cups and one European Championship in the process. In his first season with the Rossoneri, during the second part of 2019/20, he demonstrated complete reliability with impressive performances.
