Sierra Leonean striker, Alhaji ‘Adriano’ Kamara who recently signed a three-year deal with Swedish Premier League club IFK Norrköping, has said he is ready and fired-up for a new challenge in the premiership.

The striker, who is currently on holiday in Freetown, joined the Swedish giants after a successful outing with Superettan side IFK Värnamo, scoring 10 goals in 13 matches.

Facing a new challenge in the coming season, the striker is hoping to hit the ground running as he prepares for the task ahead.

The 19-year-old started his Swedish football career after joining Djurgarden on loan from FC Kallon last summer. He said it has been a little tough for him moving around, but he always knew that with hard work he would move on.

“It’s been a little tough to move around, but I always knew that hard work would take me on. I’m ready for this challenge and for the next level,” said Kamara. “I am a competitive and ambitious person who always works hard. I do a lot of goals, many say I’m strong, self, I want to become stronger. I love to play with speed and running away every defender; they cannot catch me.”

Kamara starred in five Swedish Premier Division games for Djurgarden but was loaned in the spring again to get more playing time – first to IK Frej in Division I and then to IFK Värnamo. He scored six goals in 10 league matches, two goals in the qualifying matches against Dalkurd and two more goals in one match in the Swedish Cup.
