Malawi throw ex-Baroka star a birthday

Fame & Fortune

The Malawi national team decided to throw former Baroka FC star Geralf Phiri a little birthday celebration this week! Here's a look.

The story 

With the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in full swing, many national team footballers are currently on duty before they all get some much-needed rest.

While getting the results for their countries is a top priority right now, this doesn't mean that some things don't call for celebration, especially birthdays, given that they only come around once every year.

Bromance with Gaba

Phiri and Mhango seem to have quite a close friendship as the two stars were often seen together while the former was still based in South Africa. By the looks of things, distance hasn't exactly stopped the pair's bromance and they can often roll together, seemingly separate from the rest of the squad, whenever it is the international break.

Nonetheless, on the Phiri's birthday on Wednesday, the Al-Hilal star posted several stories of his special day, including one where he and the Orlando Pirates attacker are enjoying some scenic views from an incredibly fancy resort that has an infinity pool!

Did you know?

The 29-year-old Sudan-based midfielder arrived in Mzansi in July 2015 when he joined Bidvest Wits. He would go on to spend six years in the country, representing the likes of Ajax Cape Town, Township Rollers, Platinum Stars, and Baroka before departing in November 2021.

Your thoughts, please?

Should a PSL side have snapped up the Malawian when he left Baroka last year?
