“Happy birthday sana, next time Baxter fields you please respect us and refuse to come in coz aykho indaba yakho.”
“Happy birthday King, that assist against Chippa was out of this world #Amakhosi4Life.”
“Eish, happy birthday. I was also born on this day but eish!”
" 'We wish him well in his future endeavours' would be a nicer statement.”
“Cry, you will pay him till his contract elapses. He is way better than some of those guys in the team.”
“Better than both Monare and Motshwari combined.”
“Happy birthday to Agay, may God bless him with wisdom and ability to score goals #Amakhosi4Life.”
Briefly News looks at Anthony Agay’s age, previous team and contribution
Born Anthony Teddy Akumu on this day in Kenya in a village identified as Rachuonyo, the big man is versatile and can also play as a defender. Akumu arrived at Naturena in January 2020 and signed a three-and-a-half-year deal. He has featured in five matches for coach Stuart Baxter’s men in all competitions so far.
Looking at his international career, he has played in 45 matches for the Harambee Stars and is yet to find the back of the net. As they look to redeem themselves going forward this term, Agay will be hoping to impress the English manager and become a regular feature for Chiefs.
Social media users continue to troll Kaizer Chiefs after dismal loss to Royal AM
In another story on Chiefs, Briefly News reported that it may have happened over the weekend but social media users can't get over how Kaizer Chiefs lost 4-1 to Royal AM in the DStv Premiership.
Fans are still talking about the shocker on social media with many trolling Amakhosi for what happened. Stuart Baxter finally decided to let Njabulo Ngcobo start at the back for Kaizer Chiefs.
It was expected that Ngcobo would strengthen the defence but it was not to be as four goals were conceded.
Kaizer Chiefs have been trending on social media ever since and social media users have had some analysis about the match.
