Fulham attacker Kamara arrested at Cottagers training ground and banned from club

The Whites’ forward has been reportedly arrested at Motspur Park for actual bodily harm and criminal damage. 

It’s been reported that Aboubakar Kamara was arrested on Monday evening after getting into a fight with a staff member at Fulham’s training base.

The player has been “banned indefinitely from all club activities” by manager Claudio Ranieri following the incident and is unlikely to remain part of the Italian’s plans for the remainder of the season.

Without identifying the player, the Metropolitan Police released this statement:

Police were called to a training ground in New Malden, shortly after 17.00hrs on Monday, 21 January to reports of a fight.

Officers attended. One man, in his 20s, was arrested on suspicion of ABH and criminal damage. He has been taken into custody in a south London police station. Enquiries continue.

Fulham released a statement saying they were “grateful for the swift attention and action” taken by police at the scene.

This isn’t the first time Kamara has landed himself in trouble at the club, having missed a penalty against Huddersfield Town after refusing to allow star striker Aleksandar Mitrovic take the spot kick, for which Ranieri said he “wanted to kill” the wide forward.

The 23-year-old, who also reportedly had a falling out with the Serbian striker during a yoga session, has made 13 appearances for Fulham in the Premier League this season.
