Tim Weah can’t escape famous name on back of PSG & US jersey
WHIPPANY, N.J. (AP) — Tim Weah knows he can't escape the name on the back on his jersey.
The 18-year-old midfielder is the son of George Weah, the 1995 FIFA Player of the Year and current president of Liberia.
"I use that to my advantage," Tim Weah said at training with the U.S. national team this week ahead of Friday's exhibition against Brazil. "With whatever I do, there's always going to be hate, there's always going to be people who are going to say, 'He's not as good as his dad.'"

Mom, not his famous dad.
"She's had a huge impact on where I'm at now," the 18-year-old American midfielder said. "She taught me the basics. She pushed me. She was my first coach, intramural coach when I was in Florida. That's where I really started playing."
