Aramide, 25, is a graduate from Nottingham Trent University where he completed his undergraduate degree in Modern Languages with History.

He has recently come back from a three-year spell in Barcelona, Spain where he worked with the official football club for 18 months in a project called “Barça Fans”. Aramide was involved in writing the English content for the website and he was the narrator of the exclusive videos during the 2015-16 season.

Aramide is fluent in Spanish and French and he is looking to add Portuguese to his list of languages as he would like to spend time in Brazil in the foreseeable future.

Despite being born and raised in Hertfordshire, Aramide is an avid Manchester United fan (unapologetic cockney red), but he always keeps an eye on his local football team, Watford FC.

Following his stay in Spain, Aramide has gained experience writing football articles online where he has covered the English Premier League, La Liga and the Scottish Premier League.

He also holds an interest in rugby, boxing, cricket.

Aramide is currently undertaking a Master degree in Sports Journalism in St Mary’s University.
