The new Liberia president George Weah has invited his former coach and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to his inauguration later this month.

Wenger was Weah’s manager at French side Monaco between 1988 and 1992 but he is not sure he will able to attend.

“I have been invited by George to come to the day where he will be the President,” Wenger told BBC.

“I believe I will be busy but if I am suspended (for his comments on referees) I will have time to go.”
Wenger also recalled the passion and love Weah had for Liberia.

“I went with George during the period when there was war in Liberia and I have seen how much he suffered for his country,” Wenger added.

“That was the thing which was continuous in his country, the love for his country and for his people.

“Today when I look back I see him crying when war was on in Liberia so it’s a happy story.

“I wish he has a happy presidency and I would like to say this guy is an example for everybody who plays football today.”

Weah won a presidential run-off poll last month beating Joseph Boakai with more than 60% of the vote.
He will succeed Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Africa’s first elected female president.

Weah has finally been given the official seal of victory in the recently conducted run-off Liberia elections.

Liberia’s National Elections Commission (NEC) has presented the certificate of return to the President-elect, Weah;

Vice President-elect, Jewel Howard-Taylor, and the newly elected members of the House of Representatives.

The new leaders will be sworn in on Jan. 22, which is the third working Monday of January as stipulated in the Liberian Constitution
