Mohamed Bangura hints he could retire from international football


Mohamed Bangura has hinted he may retire from international football if Sierra Leone football squabbles continue.

December last year, Isha Johansen led executive was reinstated back in office following the intervention of the country’s President Ernest Bai Koroma after hours of crisis talks.

The Country’s football is weighed down by infighting and Bangura is furious over the lack of progress.

Bangura, 26, last month signed a three and half-year deal with Chinese club side Dalian Yifang FC from Swedish Allsvenskan side AIK told the BBC sport “If the fighting continues, I will not respond to call-ups.”

“If nothing is fixed what is the point of being there?

Pointing fingers at the Isha Johansen rivals he went further to say, “The stakeholders are not doing a good job for the football team to achieve.”

“If we fail to prepare then we prepare to fail. We are not going to achieve anything even if we have players from the top leagues.

“Since I joined the national team I have never had an enjoyable moment.

“People criticise the players, they say ‘these players never play for their country’ or ‘they only deliver when it comes to their club’. But, think about it, we never have to fight for the basics at our clubs – we have everything we need to prepare.”

Bangura was part of the Sierra Leone side that was shockingly knocked out of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers on the away goal rule by lowly ranked Chad.
