Guinea’s Razza Camara Released by Club for Medical Reasons

Guinean forward Abdoul Razza Camara released by his club for medical reasons.

French Ligue 1 side EA Guingamp have released Guinea international forward Abdoul Razza Camara due to medical reasons.

The 28-year-old former Derby County winger suffered an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury in December last year and has been on the sideline ever since.

The club put out a saddening press release concerning Camara’s injury confirming his release.

“The club is very sad to announce that Razza Camara will no longer wear the shirt of Guingamp for medical reasons,” Guingamp announced on its website. 

“It follows a long process of medical examinations that have returned a verdict,” they added.

The Northwestern France-based outfit offered to provide support to Camara and his family throughout this trying period.

“All our thoughts are with Razza and his family so that they can overcome this painful ordeal. The entire club wishes him good luck for the next stage of his life. We will be by his side throughout this to help him.”

Teammates were also sad to hear of the news saying “club has lost a vastly experienced player that always lightened up the dressing room.”

Camara began his professional career in France and represented them at U-17, U-18 and U-21 levels before opting to commit to Guinea, his country of birth.

Camara was once dubbed one of the fastest players in the French top-flight while at Angers – something that prompted Derby County to sign him in January 2016.

He switched from the English Championship to EA Guingamp last summer after terminating his contract with the derby on mutual consent.

Camara went on to score twice and provided an assist after 14 appearances for the club, before suffering a horrific ACL injury against Troyes in early December.

The forward also previously played for French outfits Rennes and Sochaux, Greek giants PAOK and Spanish side Mallorca.
