Arsenal set to face Bodo/Glimt star who runs his own fishing YouTube channel

Arsenal will face Bodo/Glimt star Patrick Berg on Thursday night in the Europa League, who runs his own YouTube channel where he specialises in fishing.

The Norway international's small channel which boasts just 432 subscribers has nine videos where he travels across the fjords of his beautiful country finding the biggest fish. His trips include traipsing boggy marshes, climbing icy mountains and pushing through dense woodland.

But while Berg's favourite hobby involves a rod in his hands, he comes from a long lineage of footballers in Norway – all Bodo/Glimt stars. His dad, grandfather, two uncles and his great uncle have all played at the Aspmyra Stadion.

Arsenal are looking to continue their spectacular form on Thursday night this season with another victory over the Norwegian side. They are already top of their Europa League group after two wins in two.

It continues their great work in the Premier League where they are also top, recently besting Liverpool at the Emirates 3-2 after Bukayo Saka scored a double. The Gunners have lost just once, a 3-1 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Mikel Arteta has already revealed that Gabriel Jesus will not be playing against Bodo/Glimt as he looks to give chances to the other members of his squad. "We felt that with everything he's been through in the last few weeks that it would be better for him to stay at home," he said.

"What we think about is how we are going to win the game. That's it. How we win every three days, in different conditions, in different contexts, in different weather, in different competitions, and that's the only way we are approaching it.
