About Our Team
"There is no obstacle you cannot overcome with hard work and perseverance"
Afro Football Management has been founded by Stephen Weah.
Since the early age of six years old Stephen has had a passion and love of football and had been living the dream of becoming a professional soccer player.
In the early 90's at the beginning of the Liberian Civil War he left his country, leaving his family back in Monrovia, crossing to neighbouring Sierra Leone where he spent a year as a refugee whilst chasing his dreams.
With still no development from the situation back home in Liberia, at the age of 14 years old Stephen decided never to give up on his dreams of becoming a professional footballer, by moving from one African country to another, from Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Ghana, Gabon, Mali, to Cameroon.
In 1993 at the age of 17 he finally made the break when he was invited to a trial with OHOD OF MEDINA in Saudi Arabia, from there on he knew that there's nothing you cannot overcome with hard work and perseverance.
After three years in Saudi Arabia Stephen then moved on to play in Germany, Singapore and Indonesia where he spent 10 years of doing what he loved best.
In 2005 Stephen made the break into Australia where he was invited by Sydney FC on a trial where he sustained a knee injury and by 2007 Stephen decided to call it time on a beautiful career over the past 16 years.
We at Afro Football Management know what it takes to get there and we are here to get YOU there!
At Afro Football Management ''WE THINK YES! BEFORE WE SAY NO.''
