'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Midfielder wants to stay at Reading

Reading midfielder Brynjar Gunnarsson has rubbished rumours that he set for Iceland in the summer, saying he wants to stay with the Royals.

Reports from the Icelandic media suggested that the 36-year old was to return to his homeland to play out the final years of his career. However, these rumours have been rubbished by Gunnarsson, who has only made four appearances for the Royals this season. Instead, he has admitted that he would be more than happy to stay at the club.

Speaking to Jonny Fordham of the Evening Post, Gunnarsson said: 'I wasn't playing much, but was still involved indirectly and I enjoyed it. I finished my UEFA B on Thursday and passed that with no problems. It's something I'm still looking into, but at the same time, I want to play for as long as I can. Being a player/coach, I don't think that would suit me. It's either or.'

'There is no situation as such. It would be fantastic to stay here, if that becomes a possibility I would definitely consider that. If not, then I'll take a few weeks out and see where where things go. You always want to play, whether it's in the Premier League or not. As this season progressed I enjoyed it in a different way.'


The former Watford and Nottingham Forest player has been a versatile figure for the Royals in recent seasons, often filling it at right-back and central defence when needed. Along with Adam Federici, Gunnarsson is the only survivor from the 2006 Championship winning season where the Royals amassed a record breaking 106 points.
