Sierra Leone striker, Alhassan ‘Crespo’ Kamara, will miss the start of the Swedish Premier League season – The Allsvenskan – after being ruled out for five to eight weeks due to a foot injury.
The Orebro forward is set to miss at least three of the club’s opening fixtures against Norrköping, IFK Göteborg and Falkenberg.
According to Swedish NA Sports, Kamara confirmed his injury saying it is a sub bodily injury but refused to be more specific.
“It happened at training last week, after the game against Varberg (where he scored two goals). It is not the knees or any of my old injuries, but a new one. After I made an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), the doctors told me I will be away for at least five weeks,” he said.
The former FC Kallon forward was last year forced out of action, missing the first half of the Swedish league season due to a knee injury. He however came back and finished as the club’s top scorer with 14 goals in 14 matches.
The Sierra Leone international is hoping for a speedy recovery, saying: “Of course you do not want to be hurt, and it’s really sad. For now I will not do anything on the football field but I can run in water, bike and gyms. The injury must heal before I can start running again on the pitch. Presently the only thing I am focusing on is to be better than ever once I get back.”
