๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฑ Kamara reveals reason for hanging up international boots for the second time

Sierra Leone international Kei Kamara has revealed that the appointment of Sellas Tetteh is one of the reasons he decided to hang up his boots, according to Graphic Ghana.

Kamara who is currently plying his trade for Major League Soccer side, Colorado Rapids has been vocal about the appointment of the Ghanaian coach exclaiming that he is not the right man to lead the Sierra Leone national team to success. 

"Coach Tetteh is a good man and has good intentions. But he's an old man who I do not believe is able to really improve us and to move us forward." Kamara told the BBC on the eve of Sierra Leone's opening 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Lesotho.

"Buya Turay, Mustapha Bundu are playing in top leagues around the world and we're learning new things every day when we are with our clubs but not with Sellas, with him it feels like we are going backwards.

"I put my ego aside and decided to come for the upcoming matches to work with Sellas because I want to see the growth of Sierra Leone football.

"We tried over and over to talk to him to work together with us the senior players in the team me and captain Umaru Bangura but he didn't listen to us, he's not doing the right things to help the players grow."

However, this is not the first time that the 35-year-old has called time on his career after he did so back in October 2015 citing reasons that the national team players were being undervalued.

Kamara made his official debut for Leone Stars in a 2-0 defeat to Equatorial Guinea in Malabo back in June 2008 and tallied five goals from 29 appearances.
