George Weah joined Chelsea on loan from AC Milan in January 2000 until the end of the 1999-00 season and was well loved by Chelsea fans.
Chelsea legend Gus Poyet has fond memories of his former Chelsea teammate Weah.
“He was so educated, so nice, so calm,” says Poyet.
“He got on very well with everyone from the beginning.
“Then there was the quality of play. I remember how he had this ability to pass his right leg over the ball, making a dummy. You knew he was going to do it, but you’d be done by the dummy anyway.
“He was very, very special. He may not have scored a huge number of goals, but he helped us improve as a team.
“I took advantage of him. So many of my goals that season (there were eight after Weah’s arrival) owed something to him. He understood the game so, when I was coming from deep, I was able to exploit the spaces he left to score.”
