Last week, the General Secretary was locked in an embarrassing war of word with players who recently represented the country in African Nations Cup in Cameroon. He went on radio and accused the players of behaving dishonestly by withholding suitcases full of football gears using the tournament which, according to him they ought to have returned to the SLFA. He threatened to withhold money donated to the team by the private company in Sierra Leone if the players failed to return the suitcases.
In that same broadcast, the manager of the national team contradicted Chris Kamara’s assertion about the suitcases. Babadi Kamara said he wasn’t aware of any agreement about the return of the suitcases. He said he taught the players should be allowed to keep them memorabilia.
Some of the player took social media to accuse the General Secretary of acting in bad faith because ‘we were never told that the suitcase should be returned to the SLFA at the end of the tournament’.
Politico Newspaper reports that, Steven Caulker who plays club football in Turkey accused Chris Kamara of ‘lying’. He said instead of focusing on arranging friendly matches so that the team can improve in readiness for future tournaments, the General secretary was trying to set people apart. Caulker said until the destructive people were removed from administration of the SLFA, it would be difficult to attract players in the big leagues of Europe that qualify to play for Sierra Leone.
