The attacking midfielder was one of the first, and certainly one of the most celebrated, Icelandic professional football players. He went from Iceland to Belgium but spent the latter half of his career in Germany.
After playing a trial match in the colours of Rangers reserves against Dumbarton Reserves in November 1972, Ásgeir moved to Belgian club Standard Liège in 1973, and stayed there for eight seasons, amassing more than 300 appearances overall, and helping the club to the 1981 Belgian Cup. Immediately after, he was bought by European powerhouse FC Bayern Munich, but was used mainly as a substitute and lasted only one year on the bench.
Ásgeir then joined fellow Bundesliga outfit VfB Stuttgart, where he figured prominently until his retirement, at 35. In his second year, he netted a career-best – in Germany – 12 goals, being instrumental in a league conquest after a 32-year wait. During his penultimate season, Ásgeir scored thrice in 28 matches as the club finished fifth, still adding all 12 matches (10 complete) in Stuttgart's UEFA Cup runner-up run. In total, he played 211 German first division matches, scoring 39 goals, and more than 500 overall as a professional.
Ásgeir, who got 45 caps, with five goals, for the national team, acted as technical director at the Football Association of Iceland, for six years, and later coached the national team, from 2003 until late 2005.
