"The player took the eyes of Arsene Wenger who took him to AS Monaco. George Weah's French affection had begun."
The sentence "his French affection has begun" means that:
1- The French people started to love him
2- He started to love the French fans???
Thanks a lot.
Where did you read that sentence?
Maybe you can provide more context, so it will be easier to find out the meaning.
The 2nd meaning would be:
An affection for the French, yet it's not 100% clear.
