Thorup played youth football with Frederiksberg BK and Akademisk Boldklub, but he never played senior football. Rather, he started mentoring youth at Akademisk Boldklub in 2012.

He began working with FC Nordsjaelland in 2015 as a youth coach. Under Flemming Pedersen, he was promoted to assistant coach in 2021. He succeeded Pedersen as the team’s manager on January 7, 2023.

In what may be his final Danish Superliga game, Thorup took charge of yesterday’s 1-1 draw against Copenhagen. In addition, the Dane was questioned about the Carrow Road job but remained silent. Thorup’s first club as manager is Nordsjaelland. 

He worked his way up to become manager in January of last year, and in that time, he has won 34 of his 66 games in that capacity. Simultaneously, Wagner arrived in Norwich and emerged victorious in 31 of his 75 matches. 

His tenure with Young Boys and Schalke preceded his move to Carrow Road. Still, Wagner’s time at Huddersfield, where he won 51 of his 154 games and was promoted to the Premier League in 2017, moulded his career in England.
