Timothy Weah is ready to follow in the footsteps of his legendary father, George Weah, after moving to Serie A giant Juventus.
However, there are differences between father and son in terms of playing style.
George Weah is a well-known footballer in Italy. He won the Ballon d’Or in 1995, becoming the first African player to win the individual award during his five successful years at AC Milan.
The former striker, who now serves as the President of Liberia, helped AC Milan win two Serie A titles.
He also won the African Player of the Year award on three different occasions. His son Timothy earned his reputation when he emerged from Paris Saint-Germain.
He moved on to Lille, where he made 107 appearances, scoring eight goals. Timothy Weah had demonstrated his outstanding talent with his strength on the ball and pace.
His skills are totally different from his father’s. Timothy is well known for his assists, not like his father, who was a prolific striker and is known for scoring goals.
It is clear that his qualities will fit Massimiliano Allegri’s style of play. His father seems to be delighted about the player’s move to Juventus, and the Old Lady sees him as a replacement for Angel Di Maria and Juan Cuadrado.
George Weah openly declared love for Juventus in the past, saying, “Juventus have been my favorite team since I was a child.”
“In Liberia, I used to play in a Juventus shirt. It was Michel Platini who made me fall in love with those colors. When I then met him, I couldn’t stop smiling.”
George Weah claimed he wished he had played for Juventus during his playing career in the Serie A.
He added: “I have Juve in my blood. I really wanted to play for them but I never managed to do it. If I could have chosen, I would have chosen Juve and not PSG after my time at Monaco”.
