Rooney Asks Tanzania’s Vice President To Support Everton Ahead Of Match Against Gor Mahia


evertonExcitement has gripped Tanzanian football fans ahead of a friendly match between English Premier League side Everton and Kenyan top side Gor Mahia at the 60,000 seater National stadium in Dar es Salaam.

Everton players have been given near royal treatment since their arrival on Monday in the the East African nation.

England international and former Manchester United player Wayne Rooney has specially been a draw to the crowds and many are looking forward to see him in action.

The Democratic Republic Congo winger Yannick Bolasie rivalled Rooney in the popularity stakes with a band of Congolese fans on call to welcome him. They were drapped in t-shirts emblazoned with his face.

However it was Rooney who emerged as the fans’ favourite.

Even the country’s vice-president, Samia Suluhu Hassan, attested to that.

“Wayne Rooney made me support Manchester United and now I don’t know what to do because he has gone back to Everton,” she said.

“Being here it has been a new experience for me and I hope the vice president will now be able to support Everton,” Rooney responded.
