The 43-year-old former Tottenham Hotspur FC and Bolton Wanderers FC defender has been as surprised as anyone by the progress of a Keflavík side now in sight of an unexpected Urvalsdeild title. "I have to say the league has not gone as anticipated," said 'The Iceman'. "Keflavík, to my surprise and to the surprise of many others, have been consistent and have played very well, particularly in attack. They have many good players to choose from."
With four games to go, Keflavík are five points clear of second-placed FH Hafnarfjördur, although FH have a match in hand as well as the fillip of having earned a 1-1 away draw in their UEFA Cup second qualifying round defeat by England's Aston Villa FC. "Keflavík have a good spirit going but I also think FH have got good motivation after the draw at Aston Villa," said Bergsson. "That can get them going but the key game will be when these two meet in the 21st round.
'Best thing for fans'
"Of course other games may also play a role, like when Valur [Reykjavík] play FH and try to get even after losing to them earlier in the summer," he added. "Still, I hope the division will be exciting until the very last round. All in all, I think the most enjoyable thing has been that the teams are more attacking and a lot of goals have been scored, which is great for the fans. Saying that, you have to admit that the defending, especially from the top teams, could be better."
