Arsene Wenger Heading To Liberia
Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger’s next destination is the Liberian capital of Monrovia.
Wenger will travel to Liberia this week to receive an honour from the country's president and his former player George Weah.
The 68-year-old will be honoured by the government on Friday - which is National Flag Day in Liberia.
Wenger is being recognised for his role in developing Weah's football career, who he brought to Europe from Africa in 1998 while he was the manager of Monaco.
Weah won a landslide run-off victory last December in Liberia's presidential election.
After starring under Wenger at Monaco, Weah went on to play for AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea.
In 1995 he was named World Footballer of the Year and won the Ballon d'Or and is still the only African player to win either award.
Wenger stepped down as Arsenal manager in May 2018, after 22 years in charge of the Gunners.
