By Modou Lamin Beyai Gambian midfielder Hassane Kamara has turned down the chance to play for the Scorpions after shunning interest from coach Sang Ndong, The Standard can exclusively report. Defensive midfielder Kamara, who was born in Saint-Denis, France, to Gambian parents, currently plays for third-tier side Créteil-Lusitanos on loan from French Ligue 2 club Stade de Reims. He was the second player coach Sang Ndong and his two aides visited in their ongoing 10-day tour of Europe to scout for Gambian players. The former LB Châteauroux and FC Toulouse prodigy impressed the Gambian delegation as he scored his first goal for Créteil in their 3-1 home win over Pau FC in front of 967 people in attendance at the Stade Dominique Duvauchelle on Friday evening. “Day two yesterday in France to watch a potential player who scored his first goal for his club in front of us. We brought some luck [but] unfortunately, the player is unavailable to play for The Gambia and is holding out for another country,” Scorpions assistant Mattar M’Boge, who is on tour with Sang Ndong, disclosed. The player himself exclusively confirmed to The Standard that he has no interest in representing the Scorpions as at now as he harbors other options. “I am sorry but I see myself as a Malian-Ivorian, I am looking to represent either of those countries but first, I want to establish myself at the top before making a decision,” he said. The 23-year-old has two-years left on his contract at Reims and is currently valued at €300,000.]]>
