Go Kenwyne, it’s your birthday. We’re gonna party like it’s your birthday.
The Atlanta United striker turned 32 today. He’s been a professional since the age of 18 and made his first appearance for the Trinidad national team at 19. Jones made a name for himself in England, where he played for six different clubs in eleven seasons. A couple of his former England clubs wished him a Happy Birthday on Twitter.
