Arsene Wenger has revealed he has been invited to George Weah’s inauguration as president of Liberia at the end of January as he described his former player’s life as worthy of a film script.

Weah, who played under Wenger at Monaco between 1988 and 1992, was announced his country’s next president after winning 61.5 per cent of the vote in last month’s election.

His inauguration takes place on January 22 – sandwiched between Arsenal’s Premier League meeting with Crystal Palace on January 20 and the second leg of their EFL Cup semi-final with Chelsea on January 24.

‘I saw him in Monaco, looking lost, not knowing anybody, not being rated as a footballer, yet he became in 1995 the best player in the world and now he is president of his country. It is unbelievable.

‘He was always strong mentally, convinced he has a mission. When he played at Monaco, it was during the time of war in Liberia and I saw how much he suffered with his country.

‘The love for his country and his people, and the care he had for his people. Today when I look back, I have seen him crying when the war was on.

‘But this is a happy story and I wish him a happy presidency. He is an example to all footballers.’
