- Slaone legend Kallon
May 4, 2015 By Sahr Morris Jr.
Sierra Leone football legend, Mohamed Kallon, said his new found love for coaching has transformed his view about the game of football.
The former Inter Milan and AS Monaco striker, who recently completed his UEFA B License course in Italy, said his eight-month advance coaching training has had a great impact on his knowledge about the game both as a player and a coach.
“The coaching course has changed my perception about football in general. Playing and coaching are quite different; though the course was hard but it was a great experience for me,” the former Sierra Leone national team captain said.
He further revealed that he now feels very ready to coach but remained tight lips on whether he is interested in coaching a national team or international clubs.
He said: “I feel myself very ready to coach now, but I cannot say which area – either club or national team. But I have learnt a lot including how to prepare my team and my player to play collective football and others.”
Last year, the 35-year-old participated in a three weeks CAF License ‘B’ coaching course in Freetown and was among 37 Sierra Leonean coaches who graduated.
