Kenya’s legendary footballer Joe Kadenge will be making a filmed trip to Manchester United.

The trip, sponsored by Black Arrow, a US football media brand, is part of the media firm’s upcoming KadengeNaMpira documentary about the life and times of the football legend.

Kadenge, a former AFC Leopards, and Harambee Stars great dazzled the local and regional football scene in the 1970s when he was a dreaded winger but of late his health has been failing him, with diseases ravaging what was once a stout powerful body that gave football lovers plenty to cheer about on the terraces.

Kadenge, widely regarded as Kenya’s finest footballer, became a Manchester United fan as early as 1958 as he identified with the club following the lives lost in the 1958 Munich Air Disaster; an incident that birthed the  Manchester United we know today.

In a statement, Black Arrow said: “In Collaborating with Manchester United, Black Arrow is honoured to represent him and help fulfill his lifelong dream of visiting Old Trafford.

Joe Kadenge will join Manchester United for their anniversary activities in February.

Black arrow is expected to announce the finer details of the trip at a prèss briefing in Nairobi on Wednesday.
