Current Liberia president and the only African player to win the Ballon d'Or, George Weah, is in a critical situation as the opposition are accusing him of corruption in the government.

The situation is heated in Liberia. In the last few weeks, several protests have taken place in the country's capital against the central government.

The legendary ex-player George Weah is the president, as well as being the only African player to date to have won the Ballon d'Or.

The opposition has accused the ex Milan player, amongst other teams, of corruption and demand to know where 22 million euros of public funds went, according to 'The Guardian'.

The aforementioned source published the president's supposed words after the protests. "Whoever thinks they can walk freely through the streets of Monrovia insulting their president, is ready...", Weah said.
