Muhamed Keita of Gambia Has No Feud After Pre-mature Termination of Contract
Gambia’s Muhamed Keita, says he holds no grudges against Norwegian Club Vålerenga after his contract was terminated by the Norwegian premier league club. Keita was earlier this month shown the exit door after making just six starts for Vålerenga.
Coach Ronny Deila opted to part ways with the winger saying he has enough options to cover the injured the Gambian’s position.
The 27-year-old’s monster wages for a club on a paltry budget, in addition, to have been signed on loan, prompted Vålerenga to terminate his contract.
Muhamed’s club-less moments lasted barely three weeks before Major League Soccer club New York Red Bulls announced that they signed the former Strømsgodset forward.
Asked whether he’s resentful towards Vålerenga’s decision to let him go, Keita said,[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””] “It’s a club (Vålerenga) that gave me everything and then I did not pay them back and deliver as I wanted. I am very sorry for that. This is the only club I feel I owe in my career.”[/perfectpullquote]
The Serrekunda-born who’s yet to commit to Gambia internationally, but has played for Norway’s youth teams, isn’t expected to get playing minutes for Red Bulls until he’s fully recuperated.
Switching the topic to his latest move, he said, “This looks like a place where I can get stability in my career, and somewhere I can be for years.”
