The last name should be familiar as the young man is the son of former FIFA World Player of the Year George Weah. Born in New York City, the Timothy bounced around different youth teams before heading to the New York Red Bulls Academy. In 2014, he would move to France where he would join his father's former team, Paris St. Germain, starting with the academy team. He would make an impression from the start as he bagged a hat-trick in the team's 8-1 win over Ludogorets in the UEFA Youth League.
In July 2017, Weah signed his first professional contract with PSG. He continued to develop his skills by playing with the reserves and the under-19 teams.
Timothy was then given his shot in the first team by PSG head coach Unai Emery as he came off the bench in their game against Troyes on March 3, 2018. He would earn his first start on May 19, 2018, against Caen in the team's final game of the season.
It was announced in January 2019 that Weah would head out on loan to Scottish Premier League team Celtic for six months. He would score his first goal for the team in a 3-0 win over Airdrie in the Scottish Cup.
In June 2019, it was announced that Weah signed a five-year deal with French Ligue 1 team Lille after completing a transfer from PSG.
While eligible to play for France, Jamaica, Liberia and the United States, Timothy has decided to represent the latter on the international stage so far.
Having already played for the US under-14 and under-15 teams, he was then called up to the under-17 team in December 2015. He would go on to help the team finish in second place at the 2017 CONCACAF U-17 Championship, scoring two goals during the campaign.
Timothy then earned a spot on the team as they played in the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup in India. He would leave his mark on the tournament as he scored a hat-trick in their 5-0 win over Paraguay.
With the senior national team failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the interim US Soccer coaching staff decided to shake up the team, with Timothy earning his first call up in March 2018. He then earned his first cap in the team's 1-0 friendly win over Paraguay.
