He has played professionally in his homeland, Italy, Wales, Scotland, Sweden and the United States, and made his debut for the Norway national team in 2012.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Berget started his career at Lyn and played twice before left the club. He signed a reported three-year contract with Udinese in July 2008.[5] The club also signed team-mate Odion Ighalo and they started out playing in the Primavera U20 team.

In March 2009, he was loaned back to Lyn until 2 August.[6] In December 2009, he was loaned to Strømsgodset for one year.[7] In January 2011, his loan was extended to 31 December 2011, but the loan deal was terminated when Berget was sold to Molde in July 2011.[8]

Molde[edit]

Berget signed a three-year deal with Molde in September 2011. Berget made his debut for Molde in a 1–0 win home against Lillestrøm, replacing Mattias Moström in the 74th minute. He scored his first goal in the title-deciding match against Tromsø, where Molde FK celebrated their first league championship.

Cardiff City and Celtic[edit]

On 24 January 2014, he signed for Cardiff City, to once again play under the manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær, who was previously his boss at Molde.[9] He made his debut on 15 February in the fifth round of the FA Cup, starting in a 1–2 home defeat to holders Wigan Athletic.[10] A week later he made his Premier League debut in his only other game for the Bluebirds, playing the final 11 minutes in place of Fraizer Campbell at the end of a 0–4 home defeat to Hull City.[11] Cardiff finished the season in 20th position and were relegated to the Championship.

Berget signed a short-term loan deal with Celtic in July 2014, with the option of making the deal permanent in January 2015.[12] He scored twice as Celtic beat Dundee United 6–1 on his home debut.[13] His loan expired on 1 January 2015 and having returned to Cardiff, he left two weeks later after his contract was cancelled by mutual consent.[14]

Malmö FF[edit]

On 19 January 2015 he signed a three-year-long contract with Swedish champions Malmö FF.[15] On 19 August 2015, he scored a brace against former club Celtic, in a 3–2 defeat at Celtic Park in the first leg of the Champions League playoffs.[16] He also featured heavily with hard work on the wing in the return leg as Malmö overturned the deficit to win 2–0, rendering Malmö's qualification to the group stage.
