AEK Athens of Greece has released Mohamed Kallon from the club on the 19th May after playing for them for about five months.
Mohamed Kallon signed for the Greek club on the 28th January and made 11 appearance and scoring three goals. He was given the 23 jersey but failed to extend his stay.
According to the coach, Kallon was unable to convince him for a fruitful contract so he had to release him so he can look elsewhere.
Mohamed Kallon who is the captain of Leone Stars and the most popular player in the country has starred for many clubs in the past; from Lebanon to Switzerland, from Italy to France and from Saudi Arabia to Greece.
He is one of very few players to have played for four different clubs in Italy including Inter Milan. His demise came in September 2003 when he failed a drugs test for nandrolone at Inter Milan against Udinese.
He was banned for eight months and after his return he was not needed anymore as Obafemi Martins was now the preferred striker.
He then left Italy for France’s Monaco in 2004-5 season and excelled in the first season before he fell out with Didier Deschamps, so he was loaned to Al Ittihad when he won the AFC Champions League.
According to reports from Saudi Arabia, Kallon rejected a one and a half year deal worth $10 million from Saudi Club Al-Hilal in November 2007 and instead raised a lawsuit against them due to the hostage situation that he was exposed to when he was leaving via Jeddah Airport.
He is now a free player and will have to look for another club before the start of the 2008/9 season.
