Liberia’s president and former football star George Weah has dedicated a newly built military hospital in honour of the number 14 shirt he wore for the national football team.

Constructed at the largest military barracks south of the capital Monrovia, the 150-bed hospital has been named the 14 Military Hospital.

He promised to build the hospital in 2018.

“I am proud and happy today that my dream has been realized in record time,” Mr Weah told guests at a ceremony.

There’s also a newly dedicated 14 Market in Monrovia. The project was initiated by Mr Weah’s predecessor, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

After he retired from football, he entered politics and was elected president in 2017.
