Arsene Wenger has been fooled by false reports that former football star George Weah has won Liberia’s presidential election when in fact the final result have not yet been announced.
On Arsenal’s website Wenger says: "I would like to congratulate one of my former players, who became president of Liberia, George Weah.
"It is not often that you have a former player who becomes a president of a country and so well done Georgie and I would say just for him to keep his enthusiasm and his desire to learn and to win."
The Arsenal's manager was Weah's manager in the 90s when the Liberian was playing in the Ligue 1 with AS Monaco.
The former AC Milan striker ran for presidency for the third time in his country Liberia on Wednesday, October 11, but no official result has been announced yet by the Liberian electoral body.
George weah who is a former Ballon D'or winner and the only African who has ever won the award has lost two previous presidential elections in Liberia.
