‘I just wanted it more’ July 4, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer
School sports days can be hugely competitive events… especially when one of the dads is a professional footballer.
Ex-Chelsea and Bolton star Gary Cahill showed just the lengths he would go to to have bragging rights over his fellow parents at the school gates.
The defender posted a clip on social media of him taking part in a sack race at his children’s school sports day.
He captioned the video: “I just wanted it more.” And he’s not wrong.
The footage shows Cahill neck and neck with another parent as they approached the finish line, only for him to dive face first to grab the victory.
Needless to say the video went viral on Twitter and has been viewed nearly two million times.
The 36-year-old was perhaps putting himself in the shop window to clubs as he is currently searching for a new team.
He helped Bournemouth get promoted back to the Premier League, featuring 22 times in the Championship last season.
Cahill will not be with the Cherries for the 2022/23 season, though, as he announced on Twitter that he would be leaving.
He said: “My time as an @officialafcb player will be mutually coming to an end this summer.
“I have have thoroughly enjoyed working with this great group of players and I want to wish them and all of the staff, the very best for the future.”
