Arsenal: Wenger incorrectly praised George Weah as President

Arsene Wenger wrongly congratulated his former player George Weah for winning the Liberian presidential election on Thursday.

The Arsenal boss was seemingly the victim of false reports which suggested that the former Monaco and AC Milan star was successful in his bid for the top job in his native Liberia, despite results not yet having been confirmed.

"I would like to congratulate one of my former players, who became president of Liberia," the Frenchman said in his pre-Watford press conference.

"It is not often that you have a former player who becomes a president of a country," he continued.
