Biography

Harald Johan «Dutte» Berg (born 9 November 1941 in Bodø) is a former Norwegian playmaker and midfielder, nickname "Dutte". He is the brother of Knut Berg, the father of Ørjan Berg, Runar Berg and Arild Berg, and grandfather of Patrick Berg (son of Ørjan) – all of whom have played in the Norwegian Premier League.

Club career

Berg was a significant player for Bodø/Glimt in the late 50s, early 60s and 70s, and Lyn in the 60s. Helping Lyn winning the league in 1968 and Bodø/Glimt winning the cup final in 1975. In 1969 Lyn and Berg got to the quarter-finale in the European Cup Winners' Cup losing 2–3 and 2–2 to the Spanish giant F.C. Barcelona, it sticks to the story that Lyn had to play both matches in Spain due to the harsh weather conditions in Norway at winter.

In the early 70s Berg played at FC Den Haag in the Netherlands for three seasons.

Berg played another season for Bodø/Glimt, then retiring after the 1981 season, at the age of 40. In 1983, he briefly managed the team.
