Mo farah calls on arsene wenger to sign him up as arsenal fitness coach

first_imgDouble Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah has urged his beloved Arsenal to sign him up as their fitness coach when his athletics career comes to an end.The 29-year-old, who endeared himself to the nation by claiming gold in the 5000m and 10000m events at London 2012, is a life-long Gunners fan and has even trained with the first team squad.Mo Farah has received Arsenal gifts for his two new-born girls (Picture: Twitter)But while Farah believes he would never be good enough to be Arsene Wenger’s latest surprise signing, he does want the opportunity to work with Arsenal on improving the club’s dodgy fitness record.‘I don’t think I’d be any good at playing, but I’d like to help out at the Gunners for sure,’ Farah explained.‘I was talking to my wife the other day and I said: ‘I’d make a good fitness coach for the team or something.‘I could try to help players if they were injured or going through hard times, be able to do little things with them.’ The comments come just days after Farah became a dad to twins Amani and Aisha, and Arsenal are already helping out with the pressures of childhood, sending over a collection of club goodies including a pram and some bibs.Farah is not the only Olympic hero wanting to help out at a Premier League club though – sprinter Usain Bolt has repeatedly stressed he wants a trial with a view to playing for Manchester United, although he is yet to get his wish.last_img
