The Captain of Leone Stars, Mohamed Kallon has resigned as the captain of the National Team with immediate effect.
In a letter, written by his lawyer Ishmail Keatu Yillah and addressed to the President of the Sierra Leone Football Association, several reasons were stated as to why the player took the decision to resign as Captain.
The letter mentioned persistent administrative lapses and interference which resulted in the failure of the National Team to qualify for the next phase of the on-going 2010 World Cup and Nations Cup qualifiers.
The letter stated that despite repeated requests and gentle reminders, the football administration failed and /or refused to put the necessary mechanisms, which in turn, had resulted in the poor performance of the National Team.
The letter noted that during the recently concluded football match between Sierra Leone and Nigeria, the former Captain sustained a career threatening injury, which he is currently nursing on his expense without any assistance.
According to the letter, the administration has neglected other players from the National Team; and these are Pa Ernest and Albert Jarrett, when both got injured while on national assignment.
More over, Alhassan Bangura who risked the wrath of his club, Watford FC, to answer the national call, has been fined two weeks wage and has been suspended and would be put on the transfer window in January 2009.
No body from the administration has called Alhassan Bangura to sympathize with him, the letter states.
Kallon however assured his fans that his services would always be available to the National Team, but not in the capacity as Team Captain.
