Weah presented Wenger with the Knight Grand Commander of the Humane Order of African Redemption, Liberia highest honour.
During the presentation, Weah said Wenger proved himself as a teacher when he revolutionized scouting talents from all over the planet.
“You proved yourself as a teacher when you revolutionised forever the approach of scouting young talents all over the planet, particularly throughout Africa,” President Weah said.
The colorful ceremony was graced by several dignitaries including former Ghanaian President John Kuffour.
Thousands of cheering fans gathered at the Samuel Kanyon Doe sports complex hoping to get a glimpse of the former Monaco and Arsenal Coach.
Claude Le Roy, another coach who recommended Weah to Wenger also received the award.
Arsene Wenger and Claude Le Roy will join United States Ambassador to Liberia, Christine Elder who received one of Liberia’s highest honors from outgoing President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf as some of the few non-Liberian to be awarded with Liberia highest honor.
Sirleaf admitted the US envoy into the Star of Africa, with a Grade of Knighthood for her invaluable services in improving already existing bilateral relations between Liberia and the US.
