Kei Kamara bemoans Sierra Leone disunity


Columbus Crew new acquisition Kei Kamara in photo says Sierra Leone suffered at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations due to disunity.

The continuous row over coaching staff was the major talking point during their campaign with the country’s Football Association (SLFA) and sports ministry announcing two separate sets of coaches to take charge of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Cameroon in October 2014.

A move that finally thrown Sierra Leone’s preparations for the games in Yaoundé into complete fury.

Talking to Football Sierra Leone UK, in a vehement response, Kei said. “In my opinion I think we had a difficult campaign and I am not only blaming the officials, but also blame all the players.

“We don’t have oneness and unity, and I don’t mean on the pitch but mostly off the pitch.”

“That created a huge turmoil in Sierra Leone and our campaign, that is basically it.”

Sierra Leone in six matches scored 3 goals and conceded 14 goals, drew 1 and lost 5 with only a point in the entire campaign.

But Kei 30 also accepts that Leone Stars was mentally affected by the Ebola epidemic that allows the national team to play all their matches on the road.

He reiterated that because of the Ebola crisis and Sierra Leone declined on the FIFA rankings has an influence on his chances to join Wolves.

“I personally think the Ebola crisis is one contributing factor,” he said.

“Logically is a big blow considering home support and encouragement knowing you playing at home.

“It also affected my move to Wolves our declined in the global rankings.”

The 6-foot-3, striker with great attribute is already one of the great ‘all time’ goal scorers in MLS history with 52 MLS goals and 23 assist from 193 appearances before departing the US for Europe.

Kei Kamara who after a short spell in the English Premier League with Norwich City making 11 appearances on loan from Kansas City, before joining Championship side Middlesbrough is now set for a return to football action in January 2015 with Columbus Crew.
