Musa Noah Kamara Returns Home for Personal Reasons Says Trelleborgs Club

By Ishmael Sallieu Koroma

19-year-old Musa Noah Kamara popularly known as Musa Tombo cancelled his contract with Swedish side Trelleborgs for personal reasons, according to the club Manager Peter Swärdh.

“Musa has wanted to go home to Sierra Leone for personal reasons and we have chosen to meet his wishes”, says Peter Swärdh.

Days before his return to Sierra Leone, there were several audios making the rounds on social media in which Musa said he was returning home because of the cold weather in the Scandinavian country.

Contrary to various claims that were trending on social media, including claims made against Musa’s immediate former club EE Lions to have caused Musa’s return, according to the club on their website Musa returned home for personal reasons.

A statement from the club said “We cancel the contract with 19-year-old Musa Noah Kamara from Sierra Leone. The contract is cancelled after the player wishes to return to his home country for personal reasons.

It was last week that we signed the agreement with the 19-year-old striker who has played for both Sierra Leone’s senior national team and the country’s U20 national team. The contract, which was now terminated, was written for 3.5 years and the striker was intended primarily as a long-term reinforcement”.

The Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) immediately made investigations into the return of the 19 year- old. The FA said in a statement on August 24th that despite Mrs.

 Johansen’s intervention and efforts to try to turn the situation around, the club responded “We do not believe that it is possible for Musa to win back the trust of the board, the management, and players in view of what has happened.” The statement went further to say:

“The SLFA President would like to communicate that Musa’s situation whilst very disappointing, has given both Trelleborgs FF and the SLFA a clearer understanding of the need to be involved in the welfare and adaptation of young players heading off to countries with vast different cultures in the future. She hopes that the FA can adapt and apply the same strategy with all future international clubs”. In another twist to the story, Musa, the highest goal scorer in the 2019 Top tier league in the country appeared on short video that was shared on WhatsApp and other social media platforms that the reason for his home coming was to play for his country in the matches between Sierra Leone and Liberia.
