After leaving Spurs in 1995 and unsure as to whether he could pursue his career in football, Bergsson started studying law and became a certified lawyer when he retired from playing.

He also dipped his toe in the media world and presented a TV show in his native Iceland called  “Boltinn með Guðna Bergs“.

Bergsson still has links with Bolton Wanderers and is the president of the Former Players Association and he also scouts young Icelandic talent on a part-time basis.

Following the Iceland national team’s success at Euro 2016, he revealed that he had recommended four of their players to Bolton when they were still in the Icelandic youth system but the club weren’t interested at the time.

Bergsson was elected as president of the Football Association of Iceland in February 2017 and was re-elected for a second two-year term in 2019.
