Sierra Leone football legend, Mohamed Kallon, has reacted to recent statements by the Minster of Sports; Paul Mohamed Kamara that he played significant roles in his lustrous career claiming that he took him over to Inter Milan where Kallon made his fortunes.
Speaking Kallon stated that the Minister’s statements are mere bluff as he doesn`t even know how he was scouted by the Italian club.
“I was supposed to board a flight from Italy to Germany and while I was waiting I requested to have a training session and I was offered with the opportunity and it was during that training Inter Milan’s scouts spotted me and consequently recommended me to the team, I later became an Inter Milan player after impressing the coaches. So it is unfortunate and dishonest for someone to claim credit he/she does not deserve,” he said.
He continued that as player who has made the country proud, he needs some amount of respect if not praises, stressing that Mr. Paul Kamara never played any significant role in his career. “Why he keeps saying this lies over and again I can’t simply understand, “he fumed.
He cautioned the Sports Minster to paint the right picture rather than saying the blunt one to the public.
