Ranieri wanted Fulham attacker Kamara ‘kill’ after missed penalty

Fulham-coach Claudio Ranieri has no good word to say about attacker Aboubakar Kamara, who Saturday for a highly-publicized incident resulted in the thuisduel with Huddersfield Town. The Frenchman demanded for a penalty kick the ball and missed.

In the final stage of the match, with a 0-0 stand, made Kamara quarrel with fixed penaltynemer Aleksandar Mitrovic. In the last minute won Fulham still thanks to a goal from that same Mitrovic.

“Mitrovic is the one that the penalty takes. Kamara showed no respect towards me, the club, his teammates, the public and anyone”, said a furious Ranieri after the match at Craven Cottage.

“He demanded the ball and wanted to take the penalty at all costs. Incredible. I wanted him at that moment to kill him.”

The 67-year-old Ranieri was last month appointed at Fulham as the successor of the dismissed Slavisa Jokanovic. In the first eight matches under the leadership of the Italian were nine points to grab.

‘Goal led to demand for payment’

The coach and Leicester City in 2015 very surprising to the English championship title led, was pleased that striker Mitrovic of the shortfall of Kamara against competitor Huddersfield in the slotminuut still goedmaakte.

“It was the right time to score. These three points are very important to us and it still gives a lot of satisfaction after the fight that we have supplied. Now we have to focus on the next game, against Arsenal,” said Ranieri.

Halfway through the season, it is promoted Fulham the number eighteen of the Premier League. The lead on hekkensluiter Huddersfield was extended to four points. The uitduel with number five at Arsenal on January 1, finished.
