Idolised in Liberia as “Mister George”, Weah, 51,  will succeed Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who in 2006 took the helm of the nation first based for freed US slaves.

“I have been invited by George to come to the day where he will be president. I believe I will be busy. Maybe if I’m suspended I’ll have time to go,” Wenger joked.

Although he was handed a three-game touchline ban on Friday for his conduct after Arsenal’s draw at West Brom, Wenger can be again pitch-side by mid-January.

“What’s vital is if you have a look at his life, and I believe the lifetime of this man is an actual movie, it’s unbelievable. You could make a implausible movie.

“I bear in mind once I noticed him for the primary time in Monaco, coming in a bit misplaced, not understanding anyone, not being rated by anyone as a participant and after, in 1995, changing into the very best participant on the planet.

“Now he’s president of his country — it’s an unbelievable story. But it’s down to the fact that one thing that was common in George’s attitude is being strong mentally, absolutely unbelievably convinced that he has a mission.”

Wenger stated Weah, who entered politics in 2002, suffered for his nation and confirmed look after different folks.

“I didn’t suppose at that time that he would turn into president of his nation, however at this time once I look again, I have to say I’ve seen him crying when battle was on in Liberia.

“It’s a happy story and I wish that he has a happy presidency. I would like to say this guy is an example for everybody who plays football today, for all the players.”
