It’s now official that Rurik will move on from FC Nurnberg and until summer he will be playing in Sandhausen. The new club is also a 2. Bundesliga club and is also fight in the top of the league, like Nurnberg.
I’d like to congratulate Rurik on the move, and I look forward to seeing his further development and fight for a place in the Icelandic Euro squad.
I’ve seen multiple German articles these last days, that talks about a possible move away from FC Nurnberg. Iceland just qualified for next years World Cup, and with Rúrik’s injury shortly before last years Euro Cup, he is looking to be a regular starter for his team. He takes nothing for granted, and will fight for his place in the Icelandic squad, that will be heading to Russia next year, but it’s hard when the FC Nurnberg coach is looking elsewhere for players and often leaves Rúrik out.
Rúrik’s contract expires in the summer 2018 and if FC Nurnberg want’s to earn a bit of cash, there could very well be a transfer on the way this winter.

When Rurik Gislason (29) was substituted for Garching (5: 2) on Tuesday in the club test, the Icelander gave everything he had, shaking his opponents at high speed like pesky flies.
He scored a goal and made many dangerous actions – It seemed liked it had finally clicked for the national team player!
Gislason says: “It is my last chance to leave my footprints here. I can not afford another season with so few stakes.”
Since his transfer in 2015, the sympathetic Viking waits for his breakthrough at the club.
In his first season, he was set back by an Achilles tendon rupture, but under the ex-coach Alois Schwartz (50), he could only convince very little in the second year.
Gislason retrospectively: “I came full of hope with high expectations. Of course, I’ve promised myself more. For example, becoming a star.
I hope I can play an important role this year. Since I’ve been here, that was all I ever wanted.”
