KV Mechelen midfielder Bjarni Vidarsson will always be grateful for his Everton education.

Iceland U21 captain Vidarsson is now playing in Belgium after leaving Everton in 2008 following four years at Goodison Park. He also played for FC Twente in the Netherlands before joining Mechelen in the summer, but will never forget his Scottish education on Merseyside.
