I was an Arsenal Invincible – but after retiring I set up a successful fruit and veg business

AN ARSENAL Invincibles star looks a new man with grey hair and a beard a decade on after retiring from football – and he now runs a successful fruit and veg business.

The 47-year-old goalkeeper played for the Gunners for two years between 2002-04.

He made just five appearances for the North London club.

The 16-capped Swede was a part of Arsenal’s squad that went unbeaten in the 2003-04 but didn’t pick up a Premier League medal.

He was also loaned to West Ham in January 2004 before being released by Arsenal in the summer.

A year was then spent at Brighton before playing in Norway and then finishing his career at Hammarby IF in 2012 in his home country.

But a decade on since his retirement, now rocking grey hair and a beard, the ex-Prem footballer is in the fresh food business.

His company is a specialist in the supply from Egypt of fruit and vegetables segment.

Rami Fresh are based in Sweden and offer an assortment of fruit and vegetables from the best farms in Egypt.

And the mystery footballer can be revealed as… Rami Shaaban.


Shaaban still pays attention to football and is good friends with fellow Swede and ex-Arsenal team-mate Freddie Ljungberg.

He was also pleased to see Arsenal dominate Tottenham in the North London Derby last weekend.

Sharing a throwback picture of Thierry Henry‘s iconic knee slide from Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Spurs in 2002, he tweeted: “It’s this kind of day today!”
