Gambia: Controversy As U-17 Player 'Signs' for Casa Sport

The whereabouts of an U-17 playmaker is shrouded in mystery with unconfirmed reports linking him to Senegal league champions Casa Sport.

Saloum Faal is said to have left Gambia Ports Authority for Senegal unannounced where he is alleged to have signed a contract with Ziguinchor -based Casa Sport.

According to sources, he is said to have joined up with the Senegalese 'championat' outfit for opportunities to play abroad.

The tricky and stylist Gambia U-17 ace purportedly left last week, unimpeachable official of the Ports Authority club disclosed.

Njuga Njiran coach of the Ferry Boys remained mute when asked over the player's saga during Ports-Sea View post match comments.

But team manager Star Njie said it is delicate issue when reached yesterday.

"We don't know where he is and it is claimed he signed in Senegal" Star Njie told Foroyaa Sports.

This latest twist could strain ties between Casa Sport and Ports Authority. Casa Sport conducted their pre-seasons in Gambia beating Real De Banjul, Brikama Zonal and Brikama United in few of their many victories.

Casa Sport signed a MOU in 2011 with Brikama United and one among the agreed upon terms is for the two sides to conduct test matches.
