Mo Farah is the latest nationalised Englishman to criticise Jack Wilshere…
Double Olympic champion Mo Farah has hit back at Arsenal star Jack Wilshere’s comments over nationalised Englishman, reports the Daily Star.
The England midfielder made some strange comments last week in regards to Manchester United’s teenage winger Adnan Januzaj; who could represent England in 2018 if he wanted to.
“If you live in England for five years it doesn’t make you English,” said the gifted midfielder.
“The only people who should play for England are English people. If I went to Spain and lived there for five years, I’m not going to play for Spain.”
Farah though, who himself is an enormous Arsenal fan, has rejected the comments, claiming that he feels as English as the next man.
“It’s where I grew up, it’s where I went to school,” said the Somalian born athlete.
“I don’t know nothing but England. This is it. And when I run for my country I’m very proud, and as long as you do that and make your country proud that’s what really matters,” added Farah, who has become somewhat of a national treasure since his Olympic heroics in 2012.
Wilshere could start for his country this evening against Poland, knowing that England will definitely qualify for the World Cup in Brazil next summer should they pick up the three points.
