Musa Kallon has strongly denied allegations that he made death threats against old Edwardians chairman who fired him as the club’s coach on Tuesday.
Edwards boss Emmanuel Abdulai Saffa reported Kallon to the police. Kallon was detained and released on bail.
Kallon was also accused of abusive language against Saffa but the former Sierra Leone international striker says he was fired because he was fighting for the interest of the players.
“I have accepted the letter. All I did was to try to seek the welfare of the players,” Kallon explained to Sierra Leone Football.com.
“When I took the Job to coach Old Edwardians on September 18, 2015, I was assured by Abdulai that he would make my job easy. But that was not the case. I was spending cash from my pocket to take care of the transportation of players and other stuff.”
“I was using my equipment and balls to train the players. He was interfering with my job by discussing tactics with some players. He did that against Bo Rangers.”
“My players told me they played against East End Lions last weekend without eating and I was shocked.
“I never knew about it. I called Abdulai on the phone to know why the players were not fed. He told me that he went to a nightclub and he forgot to give money for feeding.”
“I told him what he did was wrong and he should issue an apology to the players so they would be motivated for their next match but he refused.
And I became angry. We had some exchanges and I abused him out of anger and I even told him I would beat him because he’s my younger brother but I didn’t threaten to kill him.”
“He reported the incident to the police who invited me in and took statements from me and I was bailed by one of the players.”
“Abdulai even met me at the training ground and pushed my chest to provoke me but I didn’t do anything
After just five months in charge of Edwards Musa Kallon is now in search of a new job.
