Fulham’s Aboubakar Kamara has been arrested on suspicion of actual bodily harm following allegations of a fight at the club’s Motspur Park training ground that has also led to the striker being banned indefinitely from the venue.
Metropolitan police were called to Motspur Park shortly after 5pm on Monday following reports of a violent incident there. “One man, in his 20s, was arrested on suspicion of ABH and criminal damage,” read a police statement. “He has been taken into custody in a south London police station. Inquiries continue.”
That man is Kamara, who arrived at the training ground supposedly looking to resolve his future at Fulham following a period of turbulence and uncertainty. The Frenchman, who joined the west London club from Amiens in July 2017, overuled Aleksandar Mitrovic in order to take a penalty against Huddersfield last month – which he subsequently missed – and then had a run in with the Serb during a squad yoga session.
Kamara’s time at Fulham has been in doubt ever since, with reports linking him with a move to Turkey.
The club is grateful for the swift attention and action by the Metropolitan Police immediately following our reporting of the incident on Monday,” read a Fulhamstatement. “The subject who was arrested is banned indefinitely from Motspur Park and all club activities.
“We will refrain from further comment but will stress that we will fully cooperate with any new or continuing investigation or legal proceeding in the name of providing everyone a secure and safe working environment.”
