Black History Month “Timothy Weah”
Timothy Tarpeh Weah (born February 22, 2000) is an American professional soccer forward who currently plays for Lille in Ligue 1 and for the US national team.
He is the son of Liberia’s President, George Weah, a former professional soccer player and Ballon d’Or winner. He made his senior debut for Paris Saint-Germain in March 2018 and earned his first senior international cap for the US.
Weah was eligible to represent France, Jamaica, and Liberia, as well as the United States, due to his residency and his parents’ citizenship. Weah noted that his decision to represent the United States “wasn’t hard at all” and was based on his love of the country and his teammates.
