Manchester soccer legend to visit Kenya

By Fred Maingi in Nairobi
Kenya will host a rare guest this weekend as Manchester United and one
of the most decorated club legends, Peter Schmeichel will attend the
inaugural Airtel Rising Stars African Championships and Soccer Clinic
In Nairobi.

 Schmeichel, a former Manchester and Denmark International goalkeeper
who won five Premier League titles, three FA Cups and the Champions
League during a trophy-laden eight-year spell at Old Trafford, was
appointed as a club ambassador last month and joined an elite group of
former players such as Sir Bobby Charlton, Dwight Yorke, Bryan Robson,
Gary Neville, and Andy Cole in promoting the club globally.

He will attend the final matches of the first-ever Airtel Rising
Stars Africa Championship on the 25th of August in Nairobi. His tour
is part of an exclusive partnership between Airtel and Manchester
United in several African countries. Part of the partnership agreement
enables Airtel to tap into the technical expertise provided by the
club through Manchester United Soccer Schools (MUSS) managed clinics.
