Former National Team Coach Vava George Critically Ill; Appeals For Assistance


Former National Team Coach Vava George is calling for urgent medical assistance to save his life.

The veteran Liberian Coach and a former National Team player is currently suffering from severe cold, irregular breathing, loss of appetite, among others.

Mr. George according to his son, Dominic George has been sick for about four months now.

He told our reporter that an initial intervention from his Parish was made to treat him but was later taken home, however, he added that the condition of his father is worsening by the day.

Currently the former national team head coach (Vava George) barely eat and walk properly due to his swollen legs among other health conditions.

In a sad and painful tune, Dominic narrated that if nothing is done urgently he might lose his father.

Coach George was one-time head coach of the senior national team of Liberia during the famous George Weah eleven at which time President George Weah was then technical director of the Lone Star.

According to Dominic they have made some efforts in reaching to the Liberian Leader for assistance but they have not been fortunate to get in director contact with President Weah.

” I am of the conviction that the communication or the information has not reached him (President Weah-) now but if it does he (Weah) will surely respond”, added Vava’s son.

He said they have chosen to use the media now because time is not in their favor as he believes the media can make such information reach the president including other well-meaning people very fast to ensure a major health intervention can be made to save his life.

Coach George has been a role module to many Liberian players and coaches.

He is known for his tactical approach to the game, a disciplinary and a principle-minded individual.

He served as former head coach Mighty Barrolle, Garnersville Fc, 24th Street, Sinkor base Club- Gedi and Sons Fc, Monrovia Club Breweries and many others.

The saving of the life of coach George will me a lot for the sporting body as the opposite could be a blow as urgent attention is needed now, noted George’s Son.
