Liberian president George Weah is set to honour former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and French coach, Claude Le Roy for their role in his footballing career, according to a report made by the BBC.
The ceremony is billed to hold in Liberia’s capital, Monrovia on Friday 24th August. Mr Weah succeeded Madam Sirleaf Johnson in December 2017 after he won the first round election in October with 38.4% of the vote, compared with the 28.8% of Mr Boakai, 73.
The president previously played for a string of football clubs, including AC Milan and Paris St-Germain, and is the only African footballer to have won Fifa World Player of the Year and the coveted Ballon D’Or, in 1995.
He entered politics after his retirement in 2002 and is currently a senator in Liberia’s parliament.
