KAMARA WOULD LOVE AN AMIENS RE-RUN
HAVING helped Amiens to promotion to the French top flight last season, new Fulham striker Aboubakar Kamara is confident he can do the same at Craven Cottage this year.
The 22-year-old French striker scored on the final day of the Ligue 2 season, to help push his old team into the automatic promotion spots on a day which could have seen six different teams finish in the top two.
Kamara has his sights firmly on the future but will draw on the experience of last season to help with the Whites’ promotion push in the Championship.
“It’s great what we did last season – the first time (winning promotion to Ligue 1) for Amiens – but this is now in the past. Now I focus on what’s in front,” said Kamara.
“Today I’m at Fulham and I’ll try to reproduce the same feat as last season with Amiens. I will give my best.”
Last season, Fulham missed out on a place in the play-off final after being narrowly defeated by Reading in the semi-finals.
Slavisa Jokanovic’s side had not signed a senior striker on a permanent deal since the arrival of Matt Smith in the 2014 summer window.
They will be looking to Kamara to supply the stability that last season’s chaotic loan of Derby’s Chris Martin could not provide.
Kamara added: “I need to do my job in front of goal and I think, if I’m able to do this, then the fans will be pleased with me, and so will I.
“I don’t know how many goals I’m going to be able to score here, but we’ll soon see what will happen.
“I’ll be doing everything to bring goals and provide good football.”
