Kenyan fans of Tottenham Hotspur’s injured defender, Victor Wanyama joined a procession through a town near Nairobi wish him a speedy recovery.
The 26-year-old Kenya national team captain posted pictures to his personal Instagram account of the march that took place in Machakos ahead of Tottenham’s 5-1 demolition of Stoke on Saturday.
Supporters carried a large banner reading “Wanyama Get Well soon” with many dressed in Spurs shirts.
Wanyama has been out of action with a knee injury since pre-season, but he has told his followers that he has taken inspiration from the Kenyan Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Club and vowed to return to the pitch as soon as possible.
The former Southampton midfielder wrote: “Thanks for the support Tottenham fan club in Kenya, I promise to come back better and stronger very soon.”
No doubt their desire to see Wanyama back in first team action will be echoed by the Spurs supporting UK High Commissioner to Kenya, Nic Hailey.
