Successor to bin Laden shares his passion for soccer

Osama bin Laden and the man replacing him as interim leader of al-Qaida, Saif al-Adel, have both been described as having a passion for soccer, Al Arabiya reported on Sunday.
“We played football with a group of fellow jihadists, then had lunch before I left,” Mohamed Abdel Rahman, a jailed jihadist said of Adel. “He was a really good football player, sharp and fast.”
Bin Laden was reported to be a fan of English club Arsenal and enjoyed playing center forward.
