Former Chelsea striker George Weah has revealed that his ‘talented’ son is on trial with the Blues youth team.
Weah spent two years in England playing for the West London club and then Manchester City a few seasons after winning the World Payer of the Year in 1995.
Weah’s son, Timothy, is a 13 year old striker who is thought to have impressed the Chelsea coaches in his short time in England so far.
Timothy Weah is hoping to earn himself a full time place in the Chelsea academy as he aims to follow his father’s footsteps in becoming one of the best players in European football.
Weah senior has claimed that his son has always wanted to play in England and his good relationship with the Stamford Bridge club made it easier for Timothy to get a trial.
The former Monaco, AC Milan and PSG striker has declared his son as ‘talented’ and he is enjoying his time in England.
“He is talented,” Weah told talkSPORT.
“We just wanted to give him the opportunity and we also want him to enjoy the game he has passion for, so I brought him to Chelsea just for a trial and for a different experience.
“When I left London, I kept ties with Chelsea and when my son wanted to come to England to play, the first person I called was the club’s liaison officer Gary Staker.
“Gary made it happen and Timothy is enjoying it. He has started training already and he is happy.”
