George Boe Vows Title
A Liberian midfielder, performing in the Greek league, is hopeful for his club’s ambition for the championship this season. George Boe, a former player of Ducor Defenders in the Liberian league, is proving tough for his Greek contractor, Aetos FC.
Aetos are providing thorny appearances during their games this season, resisting defeats and avoiding many draws. Boe said that he is contented with the intensity of the team’s output during the nosy stage of the league- “the second phase.”
George, known in Liberia for his ‘eradication’ drilling skills, has been position as purveyor of ball to the forward line of the club. Lone Star head coach could bring into play the player’s current form for a better national team, as Liberia can merely name a few midfielders from Europe.
Recently, Liberia trekked to Mali with four oversea midfielders-Theo Weeks, Ben Teelkoh, Patrick Doeplah and unattached David Gbemie, as well as other local-based midfielders.
