Hermann Hreidarsson

Where is Hermann Hriedarsson now?

One of the few Icelandic footballers that have played in the Premier League, Hermann Hreidarsson has the unenviable record of Premier League relegation with five different Premier League teams.



Despite this fact Hermann Hreidarsson was always highly regarded at all of the clubs which he played for, and eventually retired from playing in 2012 when he took the manager’s job at his hometown team IBV.

Whilst at IBV, Hreidarsson recruited former England goalkeeper and Portsmouth team mate David James to the team.

Hermann Hreidarsson left his managerial post at IBV in 2013 to briefly resume his playing career at Icelandic side Fylkir.

After hanging up his boots for a second time Hreidarsson was appointed manager of Fylkir on a full time basis.

Having already suffered relegation five times as a player, Hriedarsson had to endure the experience of relegation as a manager too when his Fylkir side were relegated at the end of the 2015-16 season.

He was sacked from his role in October 2016.

Hreidarsson and his father also own a hotel in Southern Iceland called the Stracta Hotel.
