It seems Arsene's jumped the gun on this one. Having coached Weah as a player during the duo's time together at Monaco, the Arsenal manager naturallyΒ applauded his ex-player on becoming the new president of his home nation, Liberia.

However although Weah is a strong candidate and frontrunner inΒ the latestΒ polls, the election results are yet to be announced leavingΒ Arsene a little red faced.

"I would like to congratulate one of my former players, who became president of Liberia," the Arsenal manager stated. "It is not often that you have a former player who becomes a president of a country, well done George and I would say just for him to keep his enthusiasm and his desire to learn and to win."

Everyone makes mistakes, but no one wants to be the person who gaveΒ Wenger thatΒ information.
