George Weah's son having trial at Chelsea

AC Milan legend George Weah has brought his 13-year-old son Timothy to London to undergo a trial with Chelsea.

Weah, who was named FIFA World Player of the Year, European Footballer of the Year, and African Footballer of the Year in 1995, had a loan stint at Chelsea in 2000 and netted three goals in 11 games for the Blues.

The Liberian is viewed as one of the greatest African players in history after his time with Milan and confirmed that his son - also a striker - could be following in his footsteps by becoming a professional player.

"He is talented. We just wanted to give him the opportunity and we also want him to enjoy the game he has passion for so I brought him to Chelsea just for a trial and for a different experience," he told talkSPORT.

"When I left London, I kept ties with Chelsea and when my son wanted to come to England to play, the first person I called was my daddy, Gary Staker [the club's liaison officer]. "Gary made it happen and Timothy is enjoying it. He has started training already and he is happy."
