Sierra Leone and Inter Milan legend, Mohamed Kallon, has successfully completed his UEFA B License coaching course in Italy on a high note, finishing fourth out of the 45 participants in the course.
The former Sierra Leone national team captain completed the eighth months training course organised by the Italian Football Federation with 125 maximum points.
In an exclusive interview with Concord Sports, the 35-year-old said he is delighted to have completed the high level course and now looks forward to entering for the UEFA A License, which comes up next year.
“Every human will always be happy for any positive achievement and for me I’m grateful to God, my family and all those who helped me to achieve this,” he said.
“For me it was fun. The course was not just for me but to also prepare myself to help the upcoming generation in Sierra Leone. With my CAF B License, I can coach national teams but not international teams, but this one is another plus and by next year I hope to complete the A License.”
The former AS Monaco striker who started his coaching role with FC Kallon – a team he owned – further stated that coaching at the biggest stage would be the “perfect scenario” in his career.
Kallon, in April 1995 at age 15, became the youngest player to ever play for the Leone Stars when he made his senior international debut for Sierra Leone against Congo. At the age of 16, Kallon was the youngest player at the 1996 African Nations Cup in South Africa.
