Liberian President, George Oppong Weah has revealed that there lies another World best Footballer in Africa that must be found and exposed to the International scene.
Speaking after Tuesday night’s exhibition match between the Lone Star and the Super Eagles at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex in Monrovia, which the Eagles edged 2-1, Weah, a former World Footballer of the Year, revealed that Nigerian Football has always inspired him.
“As a young, upcoming footballer, I was always fascinated by Nigeria’s football stars.
I looked up to the likes of Stephen Keshi, Rashidi Yekini, Friday Ekpo, and others and believed that the African footballer can also get to the very top.
I believe that in Africa, somewhere, there is another Ballon D’Or winner.
We have to find him, expose him to the world and give him the opportunity to actualize his dream,” Weah, who was named African, European and World Footballer of the Year in 1995, said.
