Sigurd Rushfeldt (born 11 December 1972 in Vadsømarker) is a Norwegianmarker football player who currently plays for Tromsø IL. He is well known for his strength and for being a prolific goalscorer.

Club career

Early career and Tromsø

Rushfeldt started his career in Vadsømarker, where he played for Vadsø Turn and Norild. He was noticed by Tromsø, which signed him in 1992. In Tromsø Rushfeldt got a reputation of being a prolific goalscorer. This sparked interest from other clubs, and in 1995 he went on an unsuccessful loan spell with Birmingham. It was not until the end of the 1996 season that Rushfeldt would move on. He then signed for Rosenborgmarker, but not before playing in the cup final that would be Rushfeldts last match for Tromsø in his first spell with the club. Rushfeldt scored Tromsø's second goal in the cup final securing a 2-1 win over rivals Bodø/Glimt.

Rosenborg and move abroad

With Rosenborg Rushfeldt had great success. He won the Norwegian Premier League 4 times, he won the cup once more and also became topscorer of the Norwegian Premier League twice. The last time he won the Norwegian Premier League with Rosenborg in 2001, he was loaned in from Racing de Santander which he had transferred to in 1999. His spell with Santander was not a great success and in 2001 Rushfeldt moved on again, this time to FK Austria Wien. In Vienna he had success and won the league with Austria in 2003 and 2006. In 2006 he also won the cup with Austria Wien.

Return to Tromsø

He returned to Tromsø, which he had left in 1996, in July 2006. When his contract with Austria Wien was nearing an end Rushfeldt declared that he wanted to end his career in Norway. Several Norwegian clubs were interested in signing him. He chose to return to Tromsø declaring that he felt drawn to the north, and that he wanted to follow his heart and therefore it had to be Tromsø. In Tromsø, he was again paired up in front with former team-mate Ole Martin Årst, who also played in the 1996 cup final and had enjoyed a career as a professional player outside of Norway before he returned to Tromsø some years earlier. This partnership ended in July 2007, when Årst was sold. Rushfeldt has built up a new partnership upfront with Morten Moldskred. In November 2007 Rushfeldt was selected to be in the Norwegian Premier league team of the year by a group of Norwegian newspapers, stating that he is invaluable as a target man.

Rushfeldt signed a new contract with Tromsø before the 2009 season, a one year extension that would see him take on the role of coach as well. He came off to a good start, scoring 5 goals in 4 appearances, including a brace away against SK Brann, a match that Tromsø went on to win 4-2.

International career

In 1994 he surprisingly got a place in Egil Olsen's squad for the World Cup in USA playing in one game, but Rushfeldt never established himself as a regular having only won a total of 7 caps by 2001, and he did not score his first goal until 2002 in a game against Japanmarker. In 2006 he announced his decision to retire from the national team. However in 2007 he reconsidered his decision and agreed with the national team coach Åge Hareide that he would make himself available for the game against Bosnia because John Carew was unavailable due to injury. He came on as a substitute in the game against Bosnia, making his first national team appearance in 2 years. Norway failed to qualify for the European Championship and retired for good from the national team. He ended his career playing 36 games scoring 7 goals.
