Chiefs Welcome Arsenal Legend & NBA Stars At Naturena

Thierry Henry Paid A Visit To Kaizer Chiefs This Weekend

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 07, 2017 10:50 AM
Kaizer Chiefs had some footballing royalty at Naturena this weekend as former Arsenal and France star, Thierry Henry, was presented with an Amakhosi shirt by Kaizer Motaung.
 
Check out images from Henry's Amakhosi visit in the gallery above
 
The 39-year-old was in South Africa as an ambassador for the NBA Africa game that took place at the Ticketpro Dome on Saturday, and he made the trip to check out the Glamour Boys’ facilities alongside Jaylen Brown of the Boston Celtics and the Houston Rockets’ Clint Capela.
 
 
Team Africa was narrowly beaten 108-97 by Team World in the event on Saturday, but before the game took place, Henry, Brown and Capela took some time to meet the likes of Kaizer Motaung, Siphiwe Tshabalala and Daniel Cardoso.
 
Speaking to Chiefs’ official website, the ex-Barcelona man said, “I made my debut for France against South Africa and finished off my international career against the same opponent… I also know the surname Motaung, because there was a player called Sizwe Motaung in the team.
 
“I am glad to have met ‘Shabba’ because I still remember the goal he scored against Mexico in the 2010 World Cup, and it is cool to see that he wears jersey number 14, which is a special number to me.”

@indidane Personal terms are slary cut from what he used to get at OP. Dunusas are shame bankrupt and Pitso is caught with his pants down this time around. He can have Lebese, but he must not try to swop his rejects to Chies, we know his budget is crumbling R12M is too much for him so he will propose to swop his rejects, tell him to take Castro, Mashaba, Vilkazi, Tau to his MDC. We want Laffor and Zwane and we will exchange, failing which he must try next door again. Gabuza and Ndoro are available

@Mzway He does not think, he knows there is one club in Mzantsi that has produced a World Cup best gol in 2010, and Chiefs brand is available internationally, and besides Chiefs is the only club that has players who have rubbed shoulders with the likes of Neymar, Rooney, Suarez, Ronaldo, Ronldinho, Ferdinand. We beat ManU and Sir Alex Ferguson's comment was this is a super team. Dunusas are shame busy with Enyimba, TP Mazembe, Onyango, Chicken Inn
