UEFA Champions League legend and former FC Barcelona ace defender, Carles Puyol Saforcada, who is more popularly known as Puyol, will arrive in Nigeria today with the iconic UEFA Champions League trophy in continuation of a world tour, which will see him meeting fans and football stakeholders in Uyo and Lagos.

The tour is a continuation of a tradition already established by Heineken, which has been a major sponsor of the Champions League since 2005/06 season of the competition.

Ahead of his arrival, Puyol, who clocked 41 last Saturday, has sent a video clip to Nigerians, urging them to be part of the excitement that will envelope Lagos and Uyo from tomorrow to April 18.

In the 16-second video clip, an excited Puyol announced to Nigerian football fans his intention of leading the Chairman Team against that of Shine Shine Bobo being marshaled by Nigeria’s legendary Austin Jay Jay Okocha in an Unmissable match, which comes up at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo.

It is the first time the UEFA Champions League Tour would be held outside Lagos.

The match will feature 20 minutes each half, with a mixture of footballers from Akwa United Football club, selected Heineken consumers and ex-Nigerian international footballers such as Mutiu Adepoju, Daniel Amokachi, Austin Eguavoen and Uche Okechukwu playing for either side of Unmissable Match.

Puyol spoke of the two days he would spend in Lagos on Wednesday and Thursday.
