Kenyan professional football player Victor Wanyama and his partner, actress Serah Ndanu Teshna, on Sunday, November 6, 2022, took their son to the Tottenham Hotspur grounds to watch an English Premier League game between Tottenham and Liverpool.

The couple and son watched Tottenham’s 2-1 defeat to Liverpool at White Hart Lane. Mohammed Salah scored both goals for Liverpool and Harry Kane managed a consolation goal for the hosts.

“Hi guys, great to be back here. You know it’s electrifying here, the …is very good. I look forward to the win. Let’s go!” said Wanyama in a video uploaded to Tottenham Hotspur’s social media handles before the match.

In one of their photos, they photographed their one-year-old son running around the Tottenham pitch prior to the start of the game.

So strategic were they in their photography as they continue hiding his face from the public since his birth in September 2021.

The celebrity couple has been together for about six years now. In a past interview, Teshna revealed that she and Wanyama were debating on whether their son will become a professional footballer like his father or turn to the Arts and become an actor like his mother. They are yet to settle that debate.

Being a former Tottenham Hotspur player, Wanyama and his family are offered complimentary tickets to watch their games and in another photo, he and his girlfriend were seated in the bleachers following the match. Wanyama is currently on holiday in London, where he has a house, following the end of the MLS season and is expected in Nairobi to visit his extended family later this week.

Victor Mugubi Wanyama made his name at Tottenham during a five-year spell that began in 2016.

It was at this football club that he was most successful and popular abroad and in Kenya. Among his achievements at Tottenham include the Champions League finalist medal earned in 2019.

The Kenyan defensive midfielder is currently not attached to any football club following the lapse of his contract with FC Montreal Impact in Canada but rumor has it he is being scouted by clubs and has received offers from Major Soccer League clubs in the United States of America and from Gulf nations.

Despite his appearance at White Hart Lane, it is highly unlikely he will be returning to Tottenham Hotspur.

He has, in the past played for Celtic in Scotland, Beerschort in Belgium, and for Kenya’s AFC Leopards.
