Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has finally touched down in Nairobi, Kenya where he is set to conduct football training camps with four community clubs in Nairobi on December 15 and 16.
Henry jetted in on Friday December 15 in a tour organized by the Guinness Made of Black programme, which aims at giving Kenyan football fans a chance to meet the former Gunners forward. The 40 year-old is ultimately partnering with Guinness to celebrate the unique passion of African fans across the tournament.
The French International is well known for his time with Arsenal where he went on to establish himself as the club’s leading with 228 goals in all competitions and won two league titles and three FA Cups with them.
Speaking to the Daily Nation, Guinness Kenya Marketing Manager Nduku Wamakau said, “Henry will hold a football clinic for coaches from the teams and later advise players on how to progress in football as a profession,
“Kenya has so much football talent. However, many times players miss out on the guidance and career advice that can take them to the next level. We believe this camp will be an eye-opener for players who want to grow to become professionals,” she added.
On Saturday, Henry who also played for Barcelona will be at the Impala Grounds for the Guinness Fan Zone.
