Liberia’s current president and one of the most gifted African footballer of his generation George Manneh Oppong Weah hasn’t forgotten all of his footy tricks.
Born 1 October 1966, Former Tonnerre of Yaoundé, Paris saint Germain of France and AC Milan of Italy striker and current democratically elected head of state of Liberia has been spotted playing street football in his country.
On November 29th 2020, Mr George who had an 18 year fruitful professional football career took by storm the youths of his country Liberia when he walked and played football in the streets of the Capital city, Monrovia in an enticing street soccer contest.
This initiative was coined to motivate and encourage youths of school going age not to dropout from school and as a means to understand the difficulty most of them face.
Mr Weah, is the lone African footballer to have won the FIFA Balon d’or during his playing days.
Weah retired in 2003 and was elected president of Liberia in 2018. He occupies the role to date.
