Arsenal fans like myself are celebrating after hearing the news that the legendary Arsenal captain Tony Adams will be in Kenya from the 4th to the 5th of December. For those who are wondering who Tony Adams is, he is one considered to be one of the greatest Arsenal players of all time by the club’s fans. His career spanned 1980-2002 a time when some Arsenal fans were not even born so you would be excused for not knowing who he is.
Did I mention that he spent his entire football career at Arsenal? During this time he made a total of 669 appearances, placing him second in the club’s all-time appearance record after David O’Leary. He is the most successful Arsenal captain having won four top flight division titles, three FA cups, two football league cups, a UEFA cup winners’ cup and three FA community shields. The guy is such a legend that to commemorate Arsenal’s 125th anniversary a statue honoring him was elected at the Emirates stadium in 2011 alongside statues of Thierry Henry and Herbert Chapman.
During his visit to Kenya, he will be joining a select group of lucky Barclays bank customers for an exclusive Barclay Premier League VIP viewing experience. In addition he will visit the home of one lucky family and Kit them out with the regalia of their favorite Premier League side. Between now and 31st December 2015, Barclays will be offering new and existing clients a chance to win an exclusive Barclays Premier League experience for them and their partner to watch a Premier League game live.
