Over the course of his 16 years or so as a professional footballer, Diomansy Kamara played for a lot of clubs, kicking a ball in Italy, England, Scotland, Turkey and even for a year and a bit in India.
However, out of all the clubs he was contracted to, there’s one that will always make him smile, and that’s Fulham.
The forward spent four years with the Cottagers, signing in 2007 for a hefty fee of £8m, during which he featured 68 times, scoring 18 goals and assisted another five.
Not only did he get to play in the Premier League, but he also contributed to the club’s best run in European football, as they reached the final of the then called UEFA Cup under Roy Hodgson.
Speaking to Afrique Football Media, relayed by Africa Top Sports, the 39-year-old was asked to pick one club out of the many he played for during his career.
He said: “If I have to choose a club, it’s Fulham. It was the Premier League. We were playing among the best. I stayed there four years, it’s the club where I flourished the most. With a final in the Europa League lost against Atlético Madrid”.
It wasn’t all sunshine and roses at Craven Cottage for the former Senegal international, however, as he reminded everyone that’s also where he suffered ‘two of the worst injuries’ of his career: cruciate ligament ones.
As well as Fulham, the winger played for Portsmouth, West Brom and Leicester City in England, as well as spending five months in Scotland at Celtic.
