Second division club Stages FC has appointed Canada-based Liberian entrepreneur and former player, Chris Geeply Weah, Vice President for Administration replacing Mulbah Reeves, who previously occupied the position.
Mr. Weah agreed to serve in the position following a series of discussions between him and the club while in Canada.
He joined the current breed of administrative leaders at the club led by Emmet Glassco to proffer ideas that will sustain the running of the club in the national league both on and off the pitch.
Weah, who holds a degree in sports medicine, said he was attracted to join the administrative structure of the club because of his passion for the talented players on the team that he would like to see them have better opportunities to pursue their football career dreams.
“The team may be struggling now, but there are little things that you can address to make it a better team. I like the players, the team, administratively, they have been doing well; so I have committed myself to that effort to help take the team forward from where they are,” Mr. Weah said.
He added that he will remain committed to improving the club despite the financial challenges that are associated with running a football club in the country. “I did consider the financial part and I am willing to commit to that.”
Making reference to his international connection, Mr. Weah said his first priority will be placed on developing better online visibility through a website and social media platforms to sell the team out to the international world.
Stages FC are currently struggling in the LFA 2nd division league with 14 points from 13 league games. They are in the 10th position following their 3-1 loss against Muscat FC on March 12, at the North Star Sports Stadium.
