Magnus Troest (born June 5, 1987 at Copenhagen) is a Danish professional footballer who currently plays for Virtus Lanciano. His major skills are his physical strength, and his heading ability. Troest is the younger brother of SønderjyskE player Jonas Troest.


Troest started playing football in different Copenhagen clubs. He debuted for the Danish under-16 national team in October 2002, while playing for club B.93. In the summer 2003, the 16 year old Troest moved abroad to play for English club Aston Villa. The club reportedly wanted to sign his big brother Jonas Troest from B.93 as well. Magnus signed a three-year contract.[1] He played two years in the youth academy, but did not get his senior debut for Aston Villa.

In May 2005 he transferred back home to Denmark, to play for FC Midtjylland (FCM) in the top-flight Danish Superliga championship.[2] He initially had to struggle to make the FCM first team, but finally made his senior debut in October 2005.[3] He won the 2005 Danish under-19 Player of the Year award. From the second half of the 2005–06 season, he became a regular in the starting line-up. He scored his first two goals for FCM, as the club beat Aarhus GF 2–1 in March 2006.

He then moved to Parma FC in 2008 (Parma re-sold half of the contract to Genoa C.F.C. for €1.5M) and he again performed well, playing nearly 30 games and helping the club into Serie A.

Genoa bought back Troest in June 2009, for €900,000.[4] Troest was one-year loaned to Recreativo de Huelva on August 30, 2009.[5]
