Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

THE 17- year- old son of iconic Liberian striker Ge­orge Weah ( above) has joined Paris Sain­tGer­main’s pro­fes­sional ranks on a three- year deal, the French Ligue 1 club said yes­ter­day.

Ti­mothy Weah, who strongly re­sem­bles his fa­ther in both look and gait, was un­veiled by the club hold­ing their shirt bear­ing his name and the num­ber 2020, in ref­er­ence to the length of his con­tract.

His 50- year- old fa­ther – a for­mer three- times African Foot­baller of the Year and the only African to win the Bal­lon d’Or in 1995 – made his name at Monaco from 1988 and en­joyed suc­cess with PSG and AC Mi­lan.
