UEFA rescues Kamara after Ebola fears

OCTOBER 24, 2014 By Sahr Morris Jnr.

Greek club PAS Lamia has recalled Sierra Leone international midfielder John Kamara after the intervention of the European football body, UEFA.

It is understood that UEFA had sent the Greek side a warning that they will be kicked out of the league if the player is not recalled. Lamia has already contacted the player’s agent, Lefteris Sidiropoulos, to apologise for everything and asked him to rejoin the club.

“My agent called me and he said the club president and the coach spoke with him, they are sorry about everything and they want me to report for training,” Kamara said.

“Am happy to be back, now looking forward to help the team progressing. We are fourth in the table and with hard work we can gain promotion,” John told Football Sierra.

The 26-year-old will be hoping to participate in their first home tie against AE Larissa since his return on Monday next week.

Kamara was returning to Greece from Cameroon after playing for Sierra Leone in their 2015 Africa Cup of Nations ties in Yaoundé. Upon his arrival, he was asked not to join his teammates for three weeks due to fears over the Ebola virus.

According to Kamara, the club’s decision was taken on the advice of the Hellenic Centre for Disease Control & Prevention (HCDCP), who feared he might have contracted the disease.
