Liberia First Division and FA Cup champions, LISCR Football Club, win their second pre-season tournament.
Many Liberian players, already playing in the low profile Asian leagues, have seen their contracts terminated or not renewed. Here is the list of top Liberian players that are without clubs.
Nearly two months after exiting from the CHAN qualifiers, the continental tournament for local players, Liberia has again faltered at another international tournament, as the team has dropped out of the WAFU Cup.
Five years after Liberians last saw one of their own play in the UEFA Champions League, Sylvanus Nimely may get to play in the 2017-18 competition as part of Spartak Moscow’s squad.
It will be the fifth edition, with the first being hosted in 2002 and the tournament is expected to help head coach James Debbah discover his best talents before the crucial Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches. The competition is open to both home and foreign-based players, but with the Lone Star lacking financial support, the squad will feature a home-based team.
The head coach of Liberia’s national football team, James Salinsa Debbah, has invited six foreign-based players for the upcoming friendly against the Harambee Stars of Kenya on November 15.
Sam Johnson might have failed to score a goal to help Liberia secure a Nations Cup qualification in Tunisia, but the former Djurgardens IF forward continues his scoring spree for his Chinese League One club, Wuhan Zall.
Liberian striker Sam Johnson scored twice to earn his Wuhan Zall a 4-0 win over Dalian Yifang, the club of fellow Liberian Sekou Oliseh.
