George Weah#1:. George Weah (Liberia)

A remarkable man who has enjoyed just as exciting a career on the pitch as he has experienced off it. Weah is a character who rates as our top African player of all time, not just by virtue of the strength of his personality, but because he had real talent on it.

By his own admission, he was a criminal and gang member in his youth but football got him out of his country – in 1995 he was voted world footballer of the year while with Paris Saint-Germain, he also ended up living in New York and commuting to training sessions in Monaco by Concorde. Such was the life of Weah.

World, European and African Player of the Year in his time, Weah scored goals at every club he went to and won league titles in France and Italy with PSG and AC Milan respectively.

And when his career ended, such was his popularity in his native Liberia that he ran (unsuccessfully) for President. Quite a character, certainly a fine player and easily our No 1.
