Sierra Leone Premier League champions Bo Rangers have set the record straight on Musa Kamara who is reportedly set to undergo an assessment with Kaizer Chiefs.
Rangers claim Kamara is still contracted to the club and “no team in the world” has made an enquiry about the striker’s availability amid reports that he expected to arrive in South Africa for trials at Amakhosi as the club’s search for a striker continues.
However, Rangers said they are willing to listen to offers and won’t stand in Kamara’s way if their demands are met.
Kamara formed part of the Rangers side that won the league title last campaign and featured at the recent Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
He scored as Sierra Leone held Ivory Coast to a 2-2 draw in the group stage. The 21-year-old also scored and provided an assist in the AFCON 2023 qualifiers against Nigeria and Guinea.
“The attention of the Board of Directors, Executive Committee, Technical Team, and Fan Club of Bo Rangers Football Club has been drawn to some social media posts, alleging, among other things, that the club’s talisman, Musa Noah Kamara has caught the interest of a South African club. Some of the posts further state that he was already on his way to South Africa for trials and eventually securing a contract with the prospective club, but our Executive Chairman Babadi Kamara, withholding his passport,” said the club in a statement posted on their official Facebook page.
“We find these social media posts very disturbing and unfortunate, we countenance same as a deliberate attempt to drive a wedge between us and the player and also to dent the hard-earned respect and admiration which our Chairman enjoys amongst the football family.
records that our Chairman Kamara has at no point in time withheld Musa Kamara’s passport for whatever reason whatsoever. In addition, we wish to unequivocally state that we have neither received nor been intimated of any interest howsoever arising in respect of the player from any football team in the world.
“The player is a legally contracted player of our club and the said contract still subsists. Inasmuch as we are not averse to holding discussions aimed at severing ties with the player if our demands are met, we are, however, mindful that such engagement should be done within the confines of the law. Kamara is a player of Bo Rangers and his status has not changed.”
