Roy Keane speaks about the event-
I am really looking forward to coming to Nigeria and meeting some of the nation’s amazing football fans at the GUINNESS VIP™ An Evening With… events.  This will be my first visit to Nigeria and I have heard that this is a country where the football fans are just as passionate as the loyal fans I had for many years at Manchester United.  I can’t wait to share my love of football and stories of my time on the pitch with such an enthusiastic audience – I’m sure they will have a whole range of interesting questions prepared for me!

I am also looking forward to being reunited with my old on field rival, Marcel Desailly, and working together again

Marcel Desailly also confirmed the arrangement
"I understand the passion Africa has for football and how the game unites and inspires us.  I have been lucky enough to travel the World playing football and to meet people from many nations.  But it is the support from the fans that really makes the difference for me as a player.  They are legendary!

It will be great to spend an evening with some of them at the GUINNESS VIP™ events and share stories from my days at Chelsea and playing for France as well as answering the questions they have for me about my football career.  No doubt we will also be sharing our views on the forthcoming Africa Cup of Nations tournament and the teams we are tipping for the honours.

I think myself, Roy and the fans are going to be in for a very special evening.
