‘Poborsky’ Bangura undergoes rehab in Sweden


SEPTEMBER 25, 2014 By Sahr Morris Jnr.

Sierra Leone striker, Mohamed ‘Poborsky’ Bangura, is currently undergoing rehabilitation with Swedish Division One club Huddinge IF just a month after terminating his contract with Turkish club Istanbul BB.

The former AIK Solna and Celtic striker last weekend begun training with the Division One club as he seeks to regain full fitness from a knee injury which forced him to undergo surgery and later terminate his contract with Istanbul by mutual consent.

The striker told Swedish Expressen that it was good for him to start his rehabilitation with the Division One club and quickly ruled out any chance to play for the team in the ongoing Swedish league.

He said: “I want to take it easy. It’s good for me to start here and see how it feels; it’s always nice to be here. Stockholm is like home for me.

“The goal is to be a hundred percent fit again. There has been much damage and bad news with injuries but it’s always up and down in football, you want to do something but cannot do it because of injury.”

Bangura, who is currently a free agent, could join any team at the moment but the former FC Kallon marksman – who joined Swedish topflight club AIK in 2010 before his big money move to Celtic a year later – does not want to talk about his future but on his quick return to action.

“My time in Scotland was marred by injuries and loans first to AIK and later to Elfsborg – a move that made many AIK supporters upset,” Bangura said. “In football anything can happen but I don’t want to speculate on the future. I do not want to rush into anything now. I’ll just put my head down and run my program. Then we’ll see what happens.”
