Mohamed Kallon breaks silence over Leone Stars job

Former Sierra Leone and Inter Milan midfielder, Mohamed Kallon has broken his silence on the fruitless attempt to appoint him as Leone Stars coach after the FA failed to agree to his terms and conditions.

Disappointing Kallon aired the part of his story on why he wasn’t given the job despite being the country’s favorite choice to lead the team.   

In a statement released by him on Thursday evening, the FC Kallon boss disclosed that he was initially approached for the job, but the FA failed to meet his conditions. Hence, he wasn’t considered to be the head coach of Leone Stars based on what he stands for.

While expressing his dismay, the former Leone Stars captain noted: “Hello Sierra Leoneans, I’m grabbing this opportunity to express my feelings on the decision taken by the Sierra Leone Football Association executive members”.

“Initially, SLFA deemed me fit and beyond all reasonable doubts saw a leader in me. However, our terms and conditions differed. Although we couldn’t meet at a juncture, we must know it is part of life’s journey to lose some and win some”, he said.

Kallon added: “I’m hopeful next time would be a win for both me and my lovely homeland. I’ve always had the urge to support and to serve my beloved nation in whatever little way that I can, especially in the sports arena”.

“Again, I want to believe every decision that is made is done so in the interest of our country”.

“However, although I’m disappointed, I’m convinced God has willed it and this would be a prerequisite of much greater things for both me and my beloved country”, he mentioned.

Conversely, he wished the newly appointed technical team the best of luck in their roles: “Sending the best wishes to the newly selected technical team, Amidu Karim, Francis Zappa Koroma, and Alhaji Foray (Abedi) on their appointments, and may God guide them right through their tenure in office”.

Many fans raised concerns on social media about the lack of trustworthiness in the approach to appointing coaches in Sierra Leone. They’ve clearly expressed how sad they are to learn that Kallon wasn’t given the job even though he has all the requisite qualifications.
