George Weah

George Weah

While George Weah now devotes the majority of his time to political pursuits rather than football—he ran unsuccessfully for the Liberian presidency in 2005—and has, when compared to other ex-stars, slipped under the radar, the 1995 Ballon d’Or winner still has an impressive back catalogue to reflect upon.

A tally of 154 goals in 434 appearances across three clubs (Monaco, PSG and AC Milan) between 1990 and 1999 is a good haul, while at international level he maintained an average of just over one goal every three games.

For us, and probably for many of you, he is best remembered for the classic goal he scored for AC Milan against Verona, a goal that pretty much sums up his attitude as a player.
