The Footballer Gentleman. The former World and European Footballer of the Year never played in a World Cup but is one of Africa’s greatest of all time. Joining Politics to become President of Liberia, he gave Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf (present President of Liberia) a run for her money in the 2005 General Election before losing in the second round.
George Manneh Oppong Ousman Weah (born Oct. 1, 1966 in Monrovia) then decided to do one of the most Gentlemanly things. He went back to School. He went to study Business Administration at Devry University in Florida. He was expected to graduate in the summer of 2011 with a bachelor’s degree. It is never too late. Congratulations and success.
