SPORT- Arsenal fans in western Uganda are opting to carry out a convoy drive to Rwanda to meet President Paul Kagame once their team is crowned the winners of the England premier League title 2022/2023.
The Gunners over the weekend clocked the 100th win with their boss Mikel Arteta in his 168th game in charge after humiliating Fulham by three goals to nil.
Many football followers in Uganda and the rest of the world believe that Arsenal have “good chances” to win the Premier League this season after an impressive start to their new campaign.
According to Western Uganda Arsenal fans, the Rwandan president has shown a good heart by supporting their team thus proposing to visit him and they at least have a cup of tea together.
The Rwandan president is a fervent supporter of Arsenal and by any measure, his country being one of the 20 poorest nations in the world; it couldn’t stop him from sanctioning a huge outpouring of government funds into sponsorship agreements with billionaire-owned football clubs.
The north London club has had a partnership with the African country’s tourism board since 2018 and in 2021 signed a £10 million-per-year sleeve sponsorship contract lasting four years.
Mikel Arteta’s side was under pressure to win after City’s late victory at Crystal Palace on Saturday and they responded emphatically, scoring three times in a rampant first half.
All three goals were created by Leandro Trossard, with Gabriel Magalhaes (21’), Gabriel Martinelli (26’) and Martin Odegaard (45+2’) the beneficiaries, and there was a further boost as Gabriel Jesus made his return from injury as a late substitute.The victory ensured Arsenal maintained a healthy lead over City at the top of the Premier League, their title chase gathering momentum with a fifth consecutive win which never really looked in doubt.DON'T MISS!!
