Alex has had a passion for playing and watching football for as long as he can remember. Growing up in London, he was within short distance of his favorite club, Arsenal, and spent the majority of his weekends watching the Gunners at Highbury. From the age of 13 until 17, Alex travelled to every stadium in the Premier League to watch his favorite team in action.

Alex keeps a close eye on football from all over the world. In 2008, Alex moved to Hong Kong and more recently to Japan. He is still following the European leagues every weekend despite different timezones keeping him awake until the early hours.

Aside from football, Alex enjoys playing ping pong, poker, cooking, reading and is currently studying Japanese.

Some of Sri's favourite players in history include the likes of Thierry Henry. He's hopeful that having completed a move for Alexis Sanchez, the glory days will soon be returning to the Emirates.
