Politics: A new career for ex-Liberian international footballers
Location: Monrovia, Liberia
It has been observed that former footballers, after retiring from the game, go into football administration, particularly coaching. But in Liberia it is becoming all together a different situation.
With George Weah’s entry into politics in 2005, the stage was set for former players to follow. At least ten former footballers including Washington Blay, Mayson Goe and Jonathan Sogbie have all run for public offices. As Twenty Ten Allstar Danesius Marteh reports from Monrovia, more could compete when national elections are held in October 2011.
