Robbie Savage 48 Not Out

The Brave Warriors’ number one supporter Robbie Savage turns 48 on Saturday and will hold a small party with friends to commemorate the milestone.

Robbie popped in to The Namibian’s office on Thursday to announce the event and to thank a number of people who have helped him over the past year.

“I want to thank Bobby Samaria (the coach of Tigers) who has organised a small party for me at the Goreangab Dam tomorrow afternoon – I have invited a few friends to celebrate the occasion,” he said.

Robbie also thanked businessman Sydney Martin, the chairman of African Stars, who has supported him materially and financially over the past year.

“Sydney Martin has helped me a lot over the past year, I really appreciate that and I want to thank him for it,” he said.

Robbie also thanked President-elect Hage Geingob who also supported him over the past year, and says he has also been invited to Geingob’s planned wedding to businesswoman Monica Kalondo this year.

“Hage Geingob helped me financially last year and he has also invited me to his wedding,” Robbie said.

“He is a big supporter of sport and I think he will be a good president,” he added.

The Brave Warriors were not very successful last year, but Robbie said he expected better results this year.

“They mostly lost last year and we did not make it to the African Cup of Nations. But they have a good coach in Ricardo Mannetti, who is also a close friend of mine, and I wish him the best,” he said.

On the local front, Robbie is a big African Stars fan and he is confident that they will do well this year.

“African Stars will take the league title this year. They have very good players and a good coach in Woody Jacobs, so I’m confident that we will win the league and cup double this year,” he said.
