Fulham striker Aboubakar Kamara was arrested on Monday on suspicion of actual bodily harm, it has been revealed.
It has been a turbulent few months for Kamara, who was recently criticised by manager Claudio Rainier for a ‘lack of respect’ after disobeying team orders in taking a penalty away from Aleksandar Mitrovic, which he subsequently missed.
The pair were also involved in a training ground bust-up just two weeks ago and Kamara has been involved in yet another altercation at Motspur Park.
A Metropolitan Police spokesperson told the Daily Mail: “Police were called to a training ground in New Malden, shortly after 17.00hrs on Monday, 21 January to reports of a fight.
“Officers attended. One man, in his 20s, was arrested on suspicion of ABH and criminal damage.“He has been taken into custody in a south London police station. Enquiries continue.”
Kamara has been banned from first team training and ordered to train with the club’s under-23 side, with his last appearance coming during the New Year’s Day defeat to Arsenal.
That will almost certainly be his last appearance for the club, with Turkish side Yeni Malatyaspor reportedly interested in taking him on loan until the end of the season.
Fulham have since released the following statement: “The Club is grateful for the swift attention and action by the Metropolitan Police immediately following our reporting of the incident on Monday.
“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.”
