Columbus Crew striker Kei Kamara is extremely disappointed after confirmation that he will miss the Eastern Conference final game against DC United on Sunday.
The tie on Sunday is very decisive as Columbus a point adrift will be looking to take the second spot from their visitors with a win.
Kei was booked in Crew’s 2-0 win over Toronto FC last Saturday in the 63rd minute, in what he described as a soft foul.
He said, “I’m trying to stay positive, but I’m disappointed. You can’t play the whole season and miss the last game of the season.”
After netting 22 goals so far, Kamara is frustrated over the yellow card that led to his suspension.
Kei, 31, despite understanding the rules, was furious with the official decision.
“Yes, I got a yellow card, but you can say I shouldn’t have gotten the yellow,” he fumes. “I didn’t get a warning all game, so there should have been a little bit of respect.”
The former Sierra Leone international is set of losing out on the Audi Golden Boot; he is tied at 22 goals apiece with Sebastian Giovinco.
Toronto’s striker Sebastian is at an advantage with more assists ahead of Kei.
“It would have been a good battle to finish the season,” Kei noted. “It’s really difficult for me to think of this going forward for the rest of my career,” He told mlssoccer.com
