Aboubakar Kamara’s struggles to find the back of the net regularly for Fulham saw his game time restricted during his four-year spell in England.
The striker managed 17 goals and seven assists in 94 matches in all competitions for the Cottagers, out of which only three of them came in the Premier League.
He failed to score a goal in the league in the first half of the last season and lack of minutes at Craven Cottage convinced the 26-year-old to join Dijon on loan in the winter 2020 market.
After returning to the English capital in the summer, the player left Fulham permanently and sealed a switch to Greek side Aris, where Kamara is not only enjoying more playing time with his current club, but has also impressed so far, managing two goals and two assists in seven league matches.
Foot Mercato were given an opportunity to interview the frontman and when asked about his first few months with Aris, he detailed why he decided to leave the Championship side.
“Why this choice? I think it was an end, the end of a little cycle with Fulham. I don’t know if I’ve been in this club long enough, if I shouldn’t have stayed a little longer, but quite honestly I think more than it was the end of a cycle. I had to go, I had to discover new horizons to flourish and then just change of scenery,” he said.
When quizzed if the recent statistics shows he has the confidence of his manager, Kamara said: “Exactly and that’s also why I left Fulham even though I felt good at this club and had all my bearings at Fulham.”
“After having had a discussion with the coach, a big discussion with my agents, but also a discussion with Aris, my choice fell towards Greece. Today I play every match so it’s already positive on this point. When you are given confidence, it necessarily contributes to your development.”
