The saga of Bolton Wanderers hero Gudni ‘will I or won’t I be a lawyer’ Bergsson continues. As regular Lawyer 2B readers will recall, the Snail has been closely following Mr Bergsson’s career since he turned his back on the law in favour of a shiny new football contract for a third time last year. Since then, the Snail has been furiously campaigning (well, secretly hoping) that Bergsson will ditch the foolish game played by knaves and return to the law where he rightfully belongs.
News just in from the North seems to suggest that Gudni is retiring from football after all and is moving back to Iceland, where he will pursue a career as a lawyer. Bolton and Bergsson were unavailable for comment at the time of going to press – something to do with a relegation battle, the Snail understands.
