Sierra Leone international striker, Alhassan ‘Crespo’ Kamara, hopes to help BK Hacken end their poor derby run against IFK Göteborg today at the Bravida Arena in the Swedish Allsvenska.
The striker, who had an injury scare during last Thursday’s training session, is in line for a starting spot as Hacken are keen to end their five years winless run against IFK Göteborg.
Already the club is hoping that Kamara’s collaboration with Alexander Farnerud could be key in Monday’s match, with striker, who scored a brace in last week’s 2-2 draw against Gefle, also eager to score more goals for his new side.
He said: “You can get the ball anywhere, anytime, so it feels great if you play in front of him (Farnerud), you must be a good listener, he talks all the time and give you good instructions. If you adopt them, it becomes easy for you.
“Hacken had almost never won against Elfsborg either – so there is always somewhere you have to start and I am eager to help the club put an end to this poor run.”
Before joining Hacken, the 23-year-old striker scored 14 goals in 19 matches for Örebro during the 2014 campaign but injury affected his performance the following year.
With thirst for goals this season, the former FC Kallon forward hopes to keep fit till the end of the season to be able to continue finding the net.
He said: “It is special for us strikers, we need to score goals to feel in shape and to have good self-confidence. So it feels great to score. My big goal now is to finish the season without injury; it is almost the first time in the league that I will play another year full, without injury.”
