Olympic legend Mo Farah recently said in an interview that he would love to work for English Premier League side Arsenal. The double Olympic Champion who swept the 5000m and 10000m races in London and Rio de Janiero expressed his desire to work for Arsenal, a club he has supported throughout his life.
The British athlete, who was born in Somalia has been endurance personified during his career as a long distance runner, winning numerous titles and obliterating records as he did so.
As he plans to hang up his running shoes after the 2017 World Championships in London, Farah wants to channel his expertise in fitness into a role that will benefit Arsenal and allow him to fulfill a lifelong dream, which is to be a part of the club he has been a fan of all his life.
The Olympian first started supporting Arsenal when he came to England as a child from Somalia. He identified with their fluidic style of play and also the fact that many African players plied their trade with the North-London outfit.
Farah has a very healthy relationship with the Arsenal hierarchy. Arsenal felicitated him in 2012 for his heroics at the London Olympic Games and he even played a charity game with the Arsenal Legends to raise money and awareness for International refugees.
