Arsene Wenger arrives in Liberia to receive special award from president George Weah

Arsene Wenger landed in Liberia on Wednesday as he prepares to receive the country’s highest honour from president George Weah.

The honour is not unconnected to the efforts made by the Manager in the successful football career of President George Weah.

He will be honoured by the government of Liberia on 24 August, National Flag Day for their role in President George Weah’s footballing career.

Weah was signed by the former Arsenal manager when he was coaching Monaco in 1988.

Mr Weah, who was raised in a slum in Monrovia, starred at top-flight European football clubs Paris St-Germain (PSG) and AC Milan, before ending his career in England with brief stays at Chelsea and Manchester City.

After retiring from football in 2003 he entered politics, and won last year’s election by a landslide.

Weah invited Wenger to his inauguration, but the Frenchman was still Arsenal manager and was unable to go.
