Former Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger has landed in Liberia as he will be honoured with the country's highest award.

Arsene Wenger was the former coach of recently elected Liberia President George Weah when they pair worked together at Monaco.

Weah who is a 1995 Balon d'Or winner will also honour Togolese national team coach Claude Le Roy who discovered him for a club in Cameroon in the late 1980s.

Le Roy then recommended Weah to Wenger who signed him for French side Monaco.

The ceremony will take place on Friday, August 24, 2018, and Liberian sports minister D. Zeogar Wilson said Wenger will be given the Humane Order of African Redemption with the rank of Knight Grand Commander.
