George Weah criticised for giving Arsene Wenger Liberia's highest honour

MONROVIA, Liberia -- Opposition politician Darius Dillon has criticised George Weah's decision to award former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger his country's highest honour.

Liberian president Weah, who was elected last year, plans to give Wenger and another French football coach, Claude Le Roy, the Humane Order of African Redemption with the rank of Knight Grand Commander at a ceremony on Friday. They both played crucial roles in Weah's career.

But Dillon came out on Wednesday and said that Weah should not be using the nation's highest honor and the office of the president to recognise people who only played a role in his "personal life."

Le Roy discovered Weah playing for a club in Cameroon in the late 1980s and recommended him to Wenger, then the coach of Monaco in France. Wenger took the advice, signed the Liberian and Weah went on to play for Monaco, Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan, and became the first and only African to win the FIFA world player of the year award in 1995.

Liberian sports minister D. Zeogar Wilson confirmed that the two would be given the award, with Wenger expected to attend the Friday ceremony.
