Arsenal fan runs for five miles alongside bus to meet Arsenal stars
A crazy Arsenal fan from Vietnam let the Arsenal players know what the club meant to the supporters by running alongside the bus packed with Arsenal stars for a full five miles. The players, who had come to play Vietnam in a pre-season tour were so impressed with the fan that they let him in inside the tour bus.

It was a dream for the Vietnamese fan to see the players right in front of his eyes, whom he only get to see on television. Inside the bus, he was seen posing for pictures with Arsenal players and also the iconic Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger. How many Arsenal fans have done such a thing for their club? But, it seems his 5 mile run was rewarding. The players inside the bus were so blown away that they also chanted 'sign him up, sign him up'.

Arsenal's goalie, Wojciech Szczesny told AFP, “It should be a message for all of you guys that if you really want to pursue your dreams, it can happen.” So with a few more places to visit for Arsenal players in their pre-season tour, it would not be surprising if another fan performs the same act as the Vietnam fan to get inside the bus. Will the Arsenal players open the door for any other such fan? It remains to be seen.

Before any football season starts, top flight football clubs go on a world tour by playing matches in countries, where they have good support. Vietnam is one of the most football-crzy countries and has a large number of Arsenal supporters. In fact, South East Asian Football fans love English premier League clubs and have a huge fan base for clubs such as Manchester United, Chelsea, and Liverpool, etc.
