Fulham striker arrested on suspicion of ABH

23rd January 2019, 16:33 by Bobbie Jackson

Fulham striker Aboubakar Kamara has been arrested after allegedly getting into a fight with staff at training.

The 23-year-old has been pushing for a move away from Craven Cottage this month, and reports suggested he was involved in a fight with team mate Aleksandar Mitrovic during a yoga session last week.

Kamara is understood to have been banished from training by boss Claudio Ranieri but the striker turned up at their Motspur Park base on Monday evening.

The report claims he was there to try and resolve his future, however, it appears his visit concluded with an arrest on suspicion of actual bodily harm and criminal damage.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: “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.”

Fulham have also confirmed an incident took place and insist they are happy to fully cooperate with the police.

“The Club is grateful for the swift attention and action by the Metropolitan Police immediately following our reporting of the incident on Monday,” Fulham said in a statement.

“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.”
