African legend George Weah has backed AC Milan's bid for Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

The Liberian said: "He's a good player and if Milan contract him I think it's a good thing.

"It's a good thing for Milan because they need good players.

"He has good skills, he's strong and he's a good scorer.

"If Milan have the possibility to take him, that's a good deal for them."
