Crespo Kamara: ‘Good feeling to be back’


December 9, 2015 By Sahr Morris Jr.

Sierra Leone and Orebro striker, Alhassan ‘Crespo’ Kamara, has not hidden his emotion after returning to full training following almost eight months on the sideline due to leg injury.

The 22-year-old attacking star, who missed the rest of this year’s Swedish Allsvenskan league season, was pictured having fun throughout the club’s training session at Behrn Arena venue.

According to Swedish online media Nerikes Allehanda, the Sierra Leonean forward was the happiest of all on the pitch during yesterday’s training session as he started the pre-season with a lighter football pass.

The former FC Kallon striker told Nerikes Allehanda: “It’s a good feeling, for sure. I’ve always had energy, and it has only been a question of when I’ll be able to use it on the field.

“It’s up to the medical team to determine when I can be back fully. There are those who follow and see my progress, and it is up to them to decide when I’m ready.”

Kamara participated in most of the training processes but had to follow the most intense fit exercise and the 11-aside game from the sideline.

The former AIK forward was Orebro’s key player during the 2014 season where he scored 14 goals in 14 league games, but injury prevented him from playing a part in the 2015 league season and in his absence the team finished 9th position from their previous 6th in the just concluded Allsvenskan league.
