Classic 105’s radio presenter Maina Kageni is a big football fan and when it comes to teams, he’s a die-hard fan of Old Trafford’s Manchester United.
The media personality has always talked about his love and support for the team, and now, one of his life long dreams has come true after meeting former Manchester United’s record goalscorer and former captain, Wayne Rooney.
The 31-year-old left United after 13 years and returned to his boyhood English club Everton, on a free transfer after enduring a frustrating final season at Old Trafford.
Well, Wayne Rooney and his Everton team-mates are currently in Tanzania ahead of their much anticipated friendly against Kenya’s Gor Mahia FC, where he was welcomed by the Tanzania Minister for Information, Culture and Sport, Dr Harrison Mwakyembe on Wednesday morning.
Rooney is set to make his debut for Everton when they lock horns with Gor Mahia on Thursday afternoon at the Tanzanian national stadium which accommodates a total of 60,000 fans.
But before the big match, Maina Kageni got the rare opportunity to hang out with the football legend, which is one of the happiest days in his life, which he had even mentioned earlier;
Didn’t think I’d say this …but I’ve never been so proud to see one of my all time favorite football stars, the highest scorer in England wearing a Kenyan brand! Kudos.
Maina shared a picture with the former United player as they had a conversation, with this caption; “With the living Legend!! All the best, Wazza…. Thanks for the trophies, goals and great times!!!
The thrilled radio presenter also got the chance to hang out with Ronald Koeman, a former Dutch footballer, and the current manager of Everton; “With the Gaffer!! Nice to meet you, Ronald Koeman…. Karibu sana.”
