    Default affection

    Dear all,

    "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

    OR

    2- He started to love the French fans???

    Thanks a lot.

    It's not a very good sentence, its meaning is not clear.

    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.

    @bha:
    Its meaning.

    Cheers!

    That was a program and that's what he said exactly. I wish I could provide more context. Then, can we say that both meaning can go????
