President Kagame states his love for Arsenal
President Paul Kagame on January 10 expressed the reason behind his support for English Premier League club, Arsenal.
@PaulKagame why do you support Arsenal?
@rorygrant89 Arsenal plays really a very good game, lose or win!! Of course we want them to win.
However, Rory Grant who seemed uncontented went to advise the President to support the Liverpool because they have the best player in world football at the moment and play attractive football as seen in this tweet;Rory Grant @rorygrant8946m
President Kagame is an ardent fan of the London based club. Kagame and manager Arsene Wenger have known each other for some time and the Frenchman sent an Arsenal flag souvenir signed by all the players to the Rwandan leader for his 50th birthday in 2007 which came as a surprise.
However, in January 2012, there was a turn of events when Kagame tweeted that, “I very much support Arsenal – but to be honest Wenger needs to coach another team now and Arsenal needs another coach,” following Arsenal’s defeat against Manchester United.
Kagame called for Wenger to be sacked after Arsenal lost to Manchester United 1-2 in an English Premier League encounter. Kagame did not particularly agree with Wenger bringing on Andrey Arshavin as a second half substitute for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Kagame’s tweet was in response to Philip Etale, a communication officer for the ODM party of Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga, another famous gunner.
Queen Elizabeth II, Cuba’s Fidel Castro, Prince Harry and American rapper Shawn Corey Carter commonly known as Jay-Z and are some of the passionate supporters of Arsenal.
