Nigerian football legend Kanu Nwankwo and his beautiful wife, Amara were at the Emirates Stadium for the EPL Matchday 34 encounter between Arsenal vs Chelsea game tonight.

Amara was just 18 when she got married to the former Arsenal man in 2004 and they have grown to become best of friends.

Kanu is perhaps best remembered for his six seasons at Arsenal, but he in fact played more games for other teams and would spend a further six years plying his trade in the Premier League.

The Nigerian star was elegant with skill in abundance and was the type of player who could conjure a little piece of magic out of nothing.

He joined The Gunners from Inter Milan for £4.15-million in 1999 having previously come through the famed Ajax Amsterdam system. He had struggled in Italy and his career needed to be revived.

He was part of the Arsenal ‘Invincibles’ squad of 2003/04, as well as winning the Premier League in 2002 & 2004, the English FA Cup in 2002 & 2003, and the FA Charity Shield in 1999.
