Like father, like son

George Weah’s son has just signed his first professional contract with Paris Saint-Germain

Timothy Weah has also elected to play his international football for USA instead of Liberia

This one is very, very satisfying. 

The son of the legendary George Weah, the Liberian striker who donned the kits of Monaco, Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan, as well as Chelsea and Manchester City, has just signed his first professional contract.

That’s right.

Weah’s third child Timothy has agreed a deal with PSG, having previously had a trial with Chelsea back in 2013.

The youngster will therefore follow in the footsteps of his famous dad, who played for the Parisian club between 1992–1995, winning the Ligue 1 title during the 1993–94 season, as well as two Coupe de France medals.

He was also awarded the Ballon d’Or in 1995, shortly after moving to AC Milan.

But surprisingly, Weah’s 17-year-old son has opted to play for the United States, instead of the West African country of Liberia like his father.

Born in New York in 2000, Timothy has represented the U.S. at Under-15 and Under-17 levels so far.

Timothy signed with PSG in 2015, and has represented the club at youth level ever since.

Having impressed with the Under-17 side, he agreed a youth contract with the French giants last year.

And clearly his hard-work has paid off with a professional contract this summer.

Personally, we’re very excited to see what young Weah can achieve.

After all, his dad was a bit of a legend, wasn’t he?
