Arsene Wenger congratulates George Weah - on an election he hasn't won

Wenger may have to check his facts next time as he praises former Ballon d'Or winner Weah on becoming president of Liberia.

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 naturally applauded his ex-player on becoming the new president of his home nation, Liberia.

However, although Weah is a strong candidate and frontrunner in the latest polls, the election results are yet to be announced - leaving 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."

Maybe Arsene doesn't know best after all.
