Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he has been invited to former footballer George Weah’s inauguration as Liberia’s president.
But Wenger, who signed Weah when he was Monaco coach in 1988, expects to be too busy to make the trip from London for the Jan. 22 ceremony. The event falls two days before the second leg of Arsenal’s League Cup semi-final against Chelsea.
Weah, a former FIFA World Player of the Year, was elected president last week in Liberia’s first democratic transfer of power in more than 70 years.
Wenger has compared the life of George Weah to a film script and described him as a shining example to the rest of the game.

“I remember when I saw him for the first time in Monaco, coming in 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.
“Now he’s president of his country — it’s an unbelievable story. But it’s down to the fact that one thing that was common in George’s attitude is being strong mentally, absolutely unbelievably convinced that he has a mission.”
Wenger said Weah, who entered politics in 2002, suffered for his country and showed care for other people.
“I didn’t think at that point that he would become president of his country, but today when I look back, I must say I’ve seen him crying when war was on in Liberia.
“It’s a happy story and I wish that he has a happy presidency. I would like to say this guy is an example for everybody who plays football today, for all the players.”
