Aazim Akhtar is an Arsenal fan and has been supporting the since he was 11 years old. Being a Gunner doesn’t come easy, so we decided to talk to a diehard fan and share his story.
Q. Who is your favorite player(s)?
It is hard to say, as the list is quite long. So let’s break them down into those that are currently playing and those that have retired.
My favorite players that are currently playing are Messi and Ozil. This is because Messi is totally unstoppable on the day. He can rip apart the defense with a single dribble and shoot. Likewise, Ozil because his vision is amazing and he knows when to pass and to whom even before the ball ends up with him.
As for my favorite players that are no longer playing, have to be The King ‘Thierry Henry’ and Zizou ‘Zinedine Zindane’. Ironically, both played for France and were a class apart in the world cups. Henry is the best striker in Arsenal’s history and his devastating finishes with dribbles were a sight to behold. Similarly, Zindane is one of those footballers that you don’t get to see until generations. His skill on the ball was mesmerizing.
Q. Who do you think will be the golden boot winner of Fifa World Cup 2018?
Personally, I think it will be someone from Germany, perhaps Thomas Muller. Their team is very strong and has many creative players, so Muller will have lots of opportunity to get the golden boot.
Q. Who do you think can win the Fifa World Cup?
My favorite is France, as their team is very good on paper. However, considering their midfield and attack, their defense is vulnerable. So think it will be either Germany or Spain who will win the World Cup.
Q. How passionate you are about Football?
Very passionate! Football is life! Everything revolves around football for me. My weekends, hangouts with friends, and any activity have to pertain to football.
