Mohammed Kamara has announced his retirement from the Liberia national team without playing a single game.

‘’Heard that everyone wanna hear my side of the story.
I won’t throw anyone under the bus.
In my years as a professional and college student, I’ve learned that respect is a two-way street,”
‘’You just don’t demand respect.Rather you have to earn it.
After years of turning down the invitation, I blame no one but myself for coming here.
‘’I can promise you all that will never happen like ever again.
It’s officially a wrap! I will be watching and cheering you guys from afar because most of you are my friends.’’
Explaining why the Turkey-based player left without permission,
Englishman Butler claimed Kamara must have been upset by his decision to exclude him from the starting XI.
“Mohamed Kamara is a player I really like.
I called him and chased him to join the Lone Star squad on many occasions,
and we managed to get him,” B
said during a live chat on the Liberia Football Association Facebook page.
“When he joined the team; I had a chat with him, and everything seemed okay.
“We had training sessions and a few members of staff and I felt he wasn’t ready to be focused,
but I was ready to give him the benefit of the doubt.
“And unfortunately, after I did the team talk prior to the game [against Nigeria],
the player in question absconded from the camp because he wasn’t in the starting line-up.
“I’m disappointed with Mohammed [Kamara].
I thought he did let me down; I think he let the nation down, I think he let himself down,
very unprofessional and with no explanation whatsoever.
“So, we moved on and drew a line and life moves on and we’re spotting more players to play for the Lone Star.”
Liberia bounced back from their loss to Nigeria to defeat the Central African Republic 1-0 on Monday evening.
