Sebwe joins Weah in UAE

Sebwe has vast experience
Liberia midfielder Kelvin Sebwe has joined Lone Star legend George Weah in the United Arab Emirates league.

Sebwe has signed for league champions Al Ahly on a three month contract.

The club will shortly begin their Asian Cup Championship qualifiers, as well as their Emirates Cup campaign.

Sebwe arrived in the country on Wednesday and began training on Thursday in preparation for Ahly's forthcoming encounter with Kuwait in the Asian Cup.

"I'm happy to play for Al Ahly and will do my best," Sebwe said.

The 30-year-old previously played for eight seasons in Europe, with spells in France, Belgium and Greece.

Former Liberia striker George Weah, who retired from international football earlier this year, is at UAE club Al Jazira.
