Bjarte Lunde Aarsheim (born 14 January 1975) is a retired Norwegian footballer. He is currently an assistant coach at Viking FK.

Club career[edit]

Viking[edit]

Aarsheim has stayed with Viking FK for the majority of his career, arriving from local club Hundvåg as a youth team player. Making his debut for Viking in 1994, he stayed with the club until 2005, playing a total of 425 games. A creative midfielder, Aarsheim was at his peak during the 2001 season, when, as captain, he led Viking to a league lead before suffering a serious ankle injury in a game against SK Brann halfway through the season. Although he made an extremely popular five-minute comeback in the Norwegian cup final victory over rivals Bryne FK later in the year, Aarsheim never really recovered from the injury. He played only 4 games in the 2002 season, and he was injured for large parts of the 2003 season as well.

Start[edit]

He remained captain of Viking until the end of the 2004 season, but midway through the 2005 season he was released on a free transfer, joining league leaders IK Start. In the summer of 2007 he surprisingly[1] joined Randaberg IL, a club playing in the fourth tier of Norwegian football, together with Øyvind Svenning.

International career[edit]

He made his national team debut in a 3-2 win against South Korea in January 2001, earning a total of three caps for Norway. His last international match was an August 2001 friendly match against Turkey.
