Local football fans were amazed as one of the coaches of Sierra Leone Premier League club FC Kallon, Charlie Wright resigned after spending 13 years at the club.

The actual reason for his resignation is unknown but Wright stated in his resignation letter that he wanted to try new challenges elsewhere.

“I believe it is time for me to move on to new challenges and opportunities,” the coach stated in his letter.

Wright stated that he wanted to utilize his “skills and knowledge to help develop football in the country”.

Wright has been a formidable member of The Cavalier’s technical team and was a member of the staff that saw the team produce talented players like Rodney Strasser and Mohamed ‘Poborski’ Bangura.

Strasser left Kallon for Italy where he played for Italian giant, AC Milan winning the scudetto with them.

Bangura, meanwhile formed a formidable strike partnership with another Sierra Leonean, Ibrahim ‘Tetteh’ Bangura at AIK Solna in Sweden. Fans at the Allsvenkan club referred to the pair as ‘the Bangura Twins’.

He added that he believes that the club is in a good position to finish this season’s campaign.

The Cavaliers are currently in second position trailing defending champions, Bo Rangers by 11 points.

The club is neither responded to the letter nor have they made his replacement public.
