Jeff Koinange was in Liberia last week visiting and interviewed president George Weah while he was there. The JKL host made his biggest wish to the former celebrated African footballer?
He told George;
I wish they make a movie on you one day. Some people don’t know you even won the Ballon D ‘or” Jeff Koinange wished amid being surprised.
President Weah was magnanimous and readily agreed. He said;
I am a record-breaker. I was a high scorer in the Champions League. I did not go to Europe to be a ‘superstar’. I went there to play football and every day I worked hard because the game required that I perform.
Mr. Weah also spoke about his former coach Arsene Wenger and said;
Arsène adopted me as a son. He would check up on me. Sometimes I got upset but I later saw he wanted the best for me. I have a responsibility to teach those who work with me the things I have learnt from others in my journey. Three things that I learnt on the pitch are team work, hard work and respect.
Weah who ascended to Presidency in Liberia on January 22, 2018, informed Jeff that he was a symbol of peace across Liberia and worked towards erasing the past memories of the former war-torn country.
Weah, who played for other top clubs such as Manchester City, AC Milan and Paris Saint Germain and Chelsea, revealed that he never dreamt of being a president. He, however, revealed that it is one thing he does with passion.
