After the setback against Slovakia, Patrick Berg (26 years old) reveals that there may be a contract extension.

– We have a good dialogue, then we will see what happens. I have nothing to say at present anyway, says Captain Glimt a little hesitantly.

Patrick Berg currently has three years remaining on his contract, which expires in the summer of 2027, but is now moving towards agreeing a new contract.

– I don't forget that. I haven't talked to My agent In several days. Right now, I don't quite know what the situation is, but I think Glimt and I know where we stand.

– But can you confirm that something is happening there?

– There has been dialogue for a long time, but there is nothing urgent. Nothing new has happened now as far as I know anyway. Don't know if I've heard anything more than what I've heard?

The smile and malicious laugh reveal that he was taken to bed by VG's questions about the negotiations.

In addition to the fact that a new contract would probably mean several years at Bodø/Glimt, it would also likely mean higher wages.

– Will your salary increase now?

– No, no idea! Maybe I should ask you! I haven't seen any contract offer,” Berg laughs.

However, according to information, at least one contract proposal was on the table.

Details have yet to be determined, but if the contract extends to 2029, he will be 32 years old when the contract expires.

He recently stated on TV 2's “Spiss Vinkel” program that he does not feel that he has been offered what he is good at in the French city of Lens, and that it might tempt him to a new adventure abroad.

– Personally, I feel that I did not succeed well in France, although I feel confident as a player that I did not have the necessary skills. Looking back, I wasn't about to get the best out of it. Next time I go out, maybe I should think about what caused me not to give my best.

– Yes, because there will be one next time?

– I really hope so, and I will not hide it. But you should never say never. I enjoy Glimt very well. I have family here and a daughter just started kindergarten. It has become difficult to pull the whole family out of daily life and escape. But I feel that desire to experience myself at the highest possible level. If Glimt ends up being the right high for me, I'll live with that just fine.

VG tried to get a comment from Bodø/Glimt's sporting director, Håvard Sakariassen, but he did not respond to the inquiry.
