Cherno Samba yesterday took time to wish his lovely wife, celebrating her on her birthday.
The former Gambia international has been married for sixteen years and has a fifteen year-old daughter.
And delivering a moving note to his wife on her birthday, Samba’s words were more than charming.
“For the last 16 years, this woman, my better half, has been an absolute rock.
“I thank God that she’s my wife and look forward to getting on her nerves for many more years!!!! Happy Birthday B!!!!!
Now 35, the striker dropped the likes of Wayne Rooney at one point on the bench while with the Junior Three Lions of England and attracted overtures from Liverpool who nearly signed him before the deal hit the buffers.
His career from that moment took a different turn leading to his globetrotting of various football leagues across the world.
