Sierra Leone International Player, Alhassan Kamara has announced his retirement from Football.
The 28-year-old enjoyed a 11-year career that spanned seven clubs, including spells at Greece giants Panetolikos and Swedish Allsvenskan side AIK.
“A few weeks ago, I made one of the toughest decisions of my life. I decided to end my football career. When I injured my knee in Greece in 2018, all the doctors said I would not be able to play football again. I refused to listen and tried to come back anyway. But now it is no longer possible”.
Kamara earned 16 caps for Sierra Leone and scored four goals.
“I will remain in the football world but in a different way. Last week I started a new position within IFK Värnamo where I will work with development of youth activities, project development and international scouting”.
“It has been difficult to accept that my football career is already over but at the same time I look forward to the new challenges that await” 🙏🏿
His last match for Sierra Leone came against Kenya in a 2019 Nations Cup qualifier in Freetown in June 2017.
