Carabao Cup

David James and Louis Saha visit Thailand for national Carabao football tournament

14 November 2022

Former League Cup winners David James and Louis Saha travelled to Thailand last week for the Final of Carabao’s national seven-a-side tournament.

Both James and Saha have previously lifted the trophy, with the former England stopper winning the competition in 1995 with Liverpool and the latter dong so with Manchester United in 2006.

The pair took in the Final during their trip to the country as part of a competition, involving over 500 teams from across the country, which saw just 32 teams qualify for the Final on 12 November.

Up for grabs was a trip to the Carabao Cup Final 2023 at Wembley Stadium up for grabs, along with a London tour package for the winning side, prize money and a trophy and medals, presented to the winning team by the former footballing stars.

And James and Saha even took part in a five-a-side celebrity all-star tournament of their own; a 15-minute match up involving the duo, a host of influencers and Carabao.

Later in the week, they called at the Child Protection and Development Centre to donate football equipment – including nets, cones, footballs and bibs – to a group of underprivileged children aged between six and 18.

James and Saha also took part in a kickabout with the children during their time at the Centre.

Meanwhile, the two took time to meet and greet fans and influencers at the Park Arena, signing shirts, scarves and other memorabilia for supporters in attendance.

They also provided analysis of Manchester City’s 2-0 win over Chelsea in Round Three of the Carabao Cup last week, before looking ahead to Manchester United’s clash with Aston Villa on Thursday evening.
