Arsenal Manager, Arsene Wenger has described former Balon d’Or winner, George Weah as an unbelievable character.
The Arsenal boss has been invited to his former player’s inauguration, and joked that he would only be able to attend if he was serving a ban.
The Arsenal manager brought Weah to Europe at Monaco, and the 1995 World Player of the Year has always been hugely grateful to his former mentor.
Wenger spoke of how “lost” the Liberian was when he first came to Europe in 1988, and said his growth had been remarkable, as he also praised his commitment to his one-time war-torn country.
Wenger then spoke effusively about the politician.
“I answer your last question – yes I have been invited by George to come to the day where he will be president.
That’s of course not so important. What’s important is when you look at his life, and I think the life of this guy is a real film, it’s unbelievable. You can make a fantastic film.
All my life, I remember when I saw him the first time in Monaco, coming a bit lost, not knowing anybody, not being rated by anybody as a player and after, in 1995 becoming the best player in the world and today being president of his country, it’s an unbelievable story.
