Weah thanked the world football legend and called his comment inspirational. “It is a great blessing and honor for me to receive such an inspiring message from the King himself,” Weah said. Thank you for everything you have done for the world and for us young black people,” added the native of Brooklyn.

Young Weah, based in Lille, France, is the son of George Weah – the current president of Liberia and the best footballer in the world in 1995.
