Rurik Gislason is going to move on from FC Nürnberg in the January transfer window, and there is interest from Denmark, where he has a past in Viborg FF, OB and FCK.
With his 181 matches in the Superligaen, Rurik Gislason is the Icelander listed for most performances in Denmark’s best football series. From 2007 to 2015, the offensive player broke his folds in Viborg FF, OB and FC Copenhagen.
The 181 matches have been standing since Rurik Gislason left FC Copenhagen in favor of FC Nürnberg in 2015, but it is not unthinkable that more matches will soon be added.
29-year-old Rurik Gislason can stand in front of a comeback in Danish football in the January transfer window.
He leaves FC Nürnberg in January. It’s still unclear what’s going to happen, but Rurik really wants to join Iceland in World Cup, and it requires him to play some time in the spring. There is no immediate prospect in Nuremberg, so he must go away, says Rurik Gislason’s agent, Magnus Agnar Magnusson, to tipsbladet.dk and adds:
“There is interest from Denmark, and that is also from Holland, Belgium and Turkey. The Danish clubs can remember Rurik from his time in Viborg, OB and FC Copenhagen, and it is my impression that he has a nice name in Denmark. We must see – it is not at all possible that he finds a club in Denmark.
Just over a year ago, tipsbladet.dk brought an interview with Rurik Gislason, who made it clear that he finds it hard to see himself in other Danish clubs than FC Copenhagen.
“There is only one club for me in Denmark. It is FC Copenhagen at this time. There are Danish clubs who have asked, but I have said that I will only play for FCK in Denmark. I felt so good at FCK and I have a lot of respect for the club. I also had a good time in Viborg and OB, but I received a lot of respect from the fans in FCK. It’s also about the level, for FCK playing in the top, but it’s mostly because I enjoyed it so much in the club. It would be a shame to play for another club in Denmark, said Rurik Gislason on January 6th to tipsbladet.dk.
Immediately, Rurik Gislason does not look like an obvious topic for FCK in the forthcoming transfer window, so the Irishman must eat their own words if the interest from Denmark is to be a club change.
“After playing for FC Copenhagen, it’s hard to play for another club in Denmark, because it will be on a completely different level. But Rurik is in a situation where he can not only choose between all clubs in the world, so if there is a good offer from Denmark, I’m sure he will consider it, “said the agent.
Rurik Gislason has had a bad season in Germany and has just played in three league matches for FC Nürnberg in the German 2nd Bundesliga.
