Liberia’s international striker, Patrick ‘Ronaldinho’ Wleh, who plies his trade for Malaysian Premier League club PKNS, has been overlooked by Liberia’s Lone Star head coach, James Salinsa Debbah for the second time.
It can be recalled that the striker was not called by Coach Debbah for the first match of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against the Sparrow Hawks of Togo in the match the red, white and blue outfit lost 2-1.
‘Ronaldinho’ Wleh has been in top form since his return from knee injury, scoring four goals and several assists in seven league matches.
The more than six feet tall striker was a delight to watch for Malaysia All Star last month against English Premiership side, Liverpool FC in a friendly encounter where the he took 13 minutes to separate both sides with a fantastic goal though the match later ended 1-1.
Wleh, who was previously left out of the squad by Malaysia National team head coach DollahSalleh, pulled out a brilliant performance in a friendly against the Malaysia All Star by netting twice which prompted the technical staff to make an emergency U-turn and include the powerful frontman.
Coach Debbah has left out the brilliant striker and there are reports that he has included several unattached players in the Lone Star squad for the crucial clash against Tunisia for the second match of the 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifier on September 5, 2017 at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) in Monrovia.
Some players called by Coach Debbah who are reportedly unattached include George Weah, Jr, Son of Africa’s football legend, King George Weah, SekouJabatehOlisseh and AdolphusNagbe Marshall.
Debbah has also called Greek lower league side, Platanias’ Liberian striker, Herron Berrian who is injured according to credible reports from Greece.
Coach Debbah still has time in his favour to call on the Liberian ‘Ronaldinho’ who has all it takes to destroy Tunisia on September 5, 2015.
