Arsène Wenger Receives Liberia’s Highest Honour

Liberian President and former football star George Weah on Friday awarded ex-Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger with the country’s highest honor – the Knight Grand Commander of the Humane Order of African Redemption – in a ceremony for services to African football that included launching Weah’s own acclaimed career.

“You proved yourself as a teacher when you revolutionized forever the approach of scouting young talents all over the planet, particularly throughout Africa,” Reuters quoted Weah as saying of Wenger during a ceremony in the capital Monrovia.

Thousands of spectators clapped and cheered as Wenger received his medal in a hall at the national stadium adorned with the national red, white and blue.

Thousands more listened to the ceremony on the radio in the stadium, once a shelter for people displaced by a civil war that ended fifteen years ago.

Prior to the conferment of the national honour, both Wenger and Weah went to the field to see Monrovia Football Academy youngsters showcase their football talents in a match against Cece United Academy.
