Elías Már Ómarsson on Liverpool
Growing up in Scandinavia there is a high chance you’ll end up supporting Liverpool.
The region has a strong base of Kopites, perhaps due to the team’s success in the 70s and 80s, perhaps due to the fact that a few Reds stars have come from the region – think Jan Molby and John Arne Riise.
Speaking to AD, Omarsson spoke of his love for Liverpool:
“Ever since I was a kid, I dreamed of playing football in the biggest leagues in the world.
“I’ve been a huge Liverpool fan from a young age, just like the rest of my family.
“Growing up in Iceland, the whole living room was filled with Liverpool stuff. We even painted Anfield on a box.
“I never stopped dreaming. But the older I get, the more you realise how things work. I’ve become realistic.”
What RTK has to say
That’s the attitude pal, never stop dreamin’.
Hey, if you were a centre back maybe we’d take a punt on you now. In fact – can someone check with him if he plays centre back?
Whilst we don’t see Omarsson getting his dream move any time soon this interview is indicative of the pull the club has.
We’ve got fans everywhere, some of them grow up to be professional footballers and down the line that can prove helpful for us if they turn out to be superstars.
