A Gambian footballer is in a serious row with his club coach.
Kebba Ceesay is captain of Swedish Premier League club Sirius IK but has found himself out of the coach’s immediate plans.
The defender hasn’t played the last five straight games after he publicly discussed the coach’s frequent decision to ignore him.
A regular inclusion in the starting being dropped to the bench hinges on tactics or form, criteria the 32-year-old veteran scorpion argues he has abundant of.
“Dialogue? The only dialogue we (him and the coach) have is that we say hello to each other. The explanation he gave me against AIK Solna was very cheap and I am right in my opinion. Honestly, I’m telling you if I’m tired and can’t play?,” he said in beginning to explain the situation.
According to Ceesay his form is not in doubt.
He added: “It’s not some fu*king social activity we’re doing. The one who is in the best shape should play. I will play in this starting eleven every day of the week – and I say that in a humble way. I’ve been doing so well for so long that I think I should play. The bench is not something I think about, in my head I will play.”
Explaining his side of the story coach Henrik Rydström while saying he is open to discussing the dispute, said: “Right now we have three midfielders who go before. Since then, Kebba has been great once he has played. If you had played with four midfielders, he would definitely have been involved. Maybe you could do that in the 80’s, but you do not do that today.”
