What Maina Kageni told Wayne Rooney after meeting him

Today Radio King Maina Kageni met the Legendary Wayne Rooney.

After taking a photo with Rooney, Maina had this message for him:

“All the best, Wazza.... Thanks for the trophies, goals and great times!!!”

The Wazza moniker was coined by Man United Fans who combined the name Gazza with the first letter from Wayne’s name to form Wazza; an honorable gesture as he was named after the legendary English footballer Paul 'Gazza' Gascoigne.

The two met in Tanzania before the SportPesa-organised Everton vs  Gor Mahia friendly match that will be going down at the Tanzania National Stadium in Dar es Salaam tomorrow, 13 July 2017.

Upon seeing Wayne in a SportPesa Jersey Maina could not contain his excitement and enthusiastically wrote :

“Didn't think I'd say this ...but I've never been so proud to see one of my all time favourite football stars, the highest scorer in England wearing a Kenyan brand! Kudos #SportPesa”
