Biography

George Manneh Oppong Ousman Weah (born October 1, 1966 in Monrovia) is a Liberian football (soccer) player. In 1995, he earned FIFA World (he is the only African to have won this coveted title), European, and Africa Player of the Year. He is widely considered the best African player of all time.

On the club level, Weah has played for Invincible Seven in his native Liberia, Tonnerre Yaoundé in Cameroon, Monaco, Paris Saint Germain, and Olympique Marseille in France, AC Milan in Italy, Chelsea and Manchester City in England and Al Jazeera in UAE. He won the French league with PSG in 1995 and the Italian league with Milan in 1996 and 1999.

As successful as he was, Weah was not able to bring over that success to the Liberian national team. He's done everything with the squad from playing to coaching to finacing it, but Liberia failed to make a single World Cup, falling just a point short in qualifying for the 2002 tournament.

Weah is a devoted humanitarian for his war-torn country. At the 2004 ESPY Awards, he won the Arthur Ashe Courage Award for his efforts. Weah was named by Pelé as one of the top 125 greatest living footballers in March 2004.

In mid-November 2004, Weah announced his intention to stand in the October 2005 presidential election, having previously been the subject of a petition urging him to run; he received a hero's welcome upon his arrival in Monrovia in late November and is widely considered a favorite in the election.
