The Icelander idolised Lampard when growing up.
He told the Telegraph: “Frank Lampard was always the player I tried to model myself on. The amount of goals he scored from midfield was incredible.
“On and off the pitch, he was what I wanted to be. I was lucky enough to work with his father for a short period at Reading and that gave me an insight into why he is the player he is, why he has scored so many goals."
