Bjarki Gunnlaugsson - Club Career

Club Career

After a period in English football at Preston North End FC, Bjarki joined up with his brother Arnar and they played together at KR Reykjavík when they came back home, played with the team for several years, then joined their childhood club, ÍA Akranes, in the year of 2006. They became the managers of the club, when the team manager, Ólafur Þórðarson, left the club because of a horrible start in the division. The brothers saved the club from relegation, but the chairman of the club hired manager Guðjón Þórðarson to control the club. Then the brothers left ÍA Akranes to join the Icelandic champions, FH Hafnarfjörður.

In July 2008, the brothers left FH amicably when Guðjón Þórðarson had been fired from ÍA, and again took the reins of their old club as player-managers.

In June 2010, it was announced that Bjarki had joined his former club and Icelandic champions FH Hafnarfjörður on free transfer. He signed a one-year contract. This transfer means that for the first time the Gunnlaugsson twins will be on opposing sides in the same league, as Arnar currently plays for Fram Reykjavik.

Famous quotes containing the words career and/or club:

    Each of the professions means a prejudice. The necessity for a career forces every one to take sides. We live in the age of the overworked, and the under-educated; the age in which people are so industrious that they become absolutely stupid.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    Of course we women gossip on occasion. But our appetite for it is not as avid as a man’s. It is in the boys’ gyms, the college fraternity houses, the club locker rooms, the paneled offices of business that gossip reaches its luxuriant flower.
    Phyllis McGinley (1905–1978)
