Mogens Berg (born 8 June 1944) is a Danish former football player, who played professionally as a winger for Scottish club Dundee United. He played eight games and scored one goal for the Denmark national football team.

Career[edit]

Born in Odense, Berg started his career with local club Boldklubben 1909 (B 1909). He helped B 1909 win the 1962 Danish Cup and 1964 Danish football championship trophies, and made his Danish national team debut in November 1964. He debuted under national manager Poul Petersen, and scored a goal as Denmark lost 2-4 to Greece. He played a further two national team games, before he moved abroad to play professionally for Dundee United in December 1964.

Due to the Danish rules of amateurism, Berg's national team career then went on a hiatus. Berg played for Dundee United at Tannadice for more than three years, before returning to play for B 1909 in May 1968. He re-entered the Danish national team in May 1971, as he helped B 1909 win the 1971 Danish Cup. Mogens Berg played five national team games under national manager Rudi Strittich, before his national career ended in June 1971.
