French World Cup winner and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) legend Youri Raffi Djorkaeff are expected in Rwanda on Saturday 29 February for a five-day visit.
The visit is in line with the three-year agreement between Rwanda and PSG, which came following another successful partnership with Arsenal in the Premier League.
Under the agreement, local fashion and design, Rwandan art and culture, coffee and tea and tourist attractions will gain visibility through the club.
Rwandan tea and coffee will be sold exclusively at the Parc des Princes, PSG’s home stadium with a capacity of almost 48,000 people.
According to the Rwanda Development Board (RDB), Djorkaeff arrives in the country on Saturday evening.
During his PSG career, Djorkaeff won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1996 among many other trophies. He also played for AS Monaco and for the Italian giants of Inter.
Internationally, the retired offensive midfielder helped France to the 1998 Fifa World Cup, the Euro 2020 and the 2001 FIFA Confederations Cup.
