The striker had his last competitive matches while he played for IFK Varnamo, who he joined in March, against Barge in the Swedish second tier. This happened five months ago.
Kamara has been battling a knee injury since 2018 which he suffered while playing for Greek club Panetolikos. This led him to undergo surgery and kept him away from football for over a whole year.
‘’I took the decision based on the advice of a knee specialist in Sweden who told me to discontinue my career as further damage to the knee could see me end up in a wheelchair,’’ Kamara said in an interview recently.
Further, he said when he got his injury while playing in Greece in 2018, doctors revealed to him that he would not play football again. But he didn’t listen and returned to play in Greece to make a comeback.
At the time of the injury, he admitted that he had faced mental battles as well as physical ones which he had overcome with the help of his then-fiancée. He married her in June 2019.
Despite not playing for the Leone Stars, he still harbored hopes of returning to the national team.
However, he already has plans for the future and will start as an international scout for IFK Varnamo. He will also work with young people in Swedish communities.
