Kamara: ‘Injury not 100 percent healed’


May 1, 2015 By Sahr Morris Jr.

Sierra Leone and Orebro striker, Alhassan ‘Crespo’ Kamara, has said he is yet to get 100% healed from the “in bodily injury” he suffered a month ago.

The forward was examined by the club doctor, Ulf Nordström, to see whether the injury, which has also kept him away from football training, was healed.

“I was told that the healing process has progressed, but the injury is not 100 percent healed, which for me means that I must continue to have patience, and be careful how I use my right foot. I cannot even jog, and must be careful how I put the foot down,” the striker told Swedish journalist Lasse WirstrÖm of NA. Se.

The 22-year-old striker, who last year scored 14 goals to help Orebro finish fifth place in the Allsvenskan, said he was not downcast by the news from the doctor and hopes he will start hard training soon.

“I feel it will soon heal, even this news from the doctor is more positive one for me. But there is no forecast of the time to return because it is apparently difficult to assess, and our doctors do not want to give me a forecast that might not agree. The risk is that you will be disappointed if that happened,” the forward said.

The first phase of the Allsvenskan will end on June 7, and it remains to be seen whether Kamara could be back with the Orebro squad before the league resumes at the beginning of July.
