Bangura undergoes trial with Wisla Krakow

February 3, 2015 By Sahr Morris Jr.

Sierra Leone striker Mustapha ‘Haji’ Bangura has joined Polish Premier League (the Ekstraklasa) side Wisla Krakow on trials with the hope of securing a permanent move.

The 25-year-old has already joined up with the Polish side who are presently on a training camp in Turkey where they are expected to play several friendly matches against teams in Turkey and from Chinese Super League side Guangzhou R&F F.C.

According to a report in Wisla Krakow’s website, Bangura joined the side on Saturday evening and will be around throughout the team’s training camp for the technical staff to assess his performance before a decision could be taken.

“Yesterday evening whilst being resident in Turkey, the team welcomed striker/midfielder Mustapha Bangura. Over the next few days the player from Sierra Leone will be assessed by our coaching staff and will undergo several test games with us. Bangura was born on October 24, 1989,” a message from the club’s press office reads on their website.

Before joining Wisla Krakow on trials, the former Old Edwardians forward last played for Nikos & Socratis Erimis FC in the Cypriot third tier league where he was gaining fitness from over a two-month injury.

Bangura first joined Cyprus first division side Nea Salamina FC in 2006. In 2008, he joined AC Omonoia and the next year he moved to Apollon Limassol where he helped the team win the 2009/10 Cypriot Cup, scoring also the opening goal of the final.

In 2012, the former Sierra Leone international joined AEK on a 2-year deal.

Wisla Krakow is one of the oldest and most successful Polish football clubs. It ranks third in the number of national titles winning 13, behind Gornik Zabrze and Ruch Chorzow, who both have 14 titles each.
