Kebba reveals reason for leaving Poznan

By Sulayman Bah

Gambia international Kebba Ceesay has spoken for the first time since sealing a deal that returns him to KebbaDjugardens, revealing his decision for exiting Polish side Lech Poznan.

The 28-year-old was offered a deal stay put in Poznan despite his injury problems but opted to leave for good after four years with the Polish giants.

And harping on what influenced his decision to return to his erstwhile Swedish side Djurgardens, Ceesay, said he grew homesick and bored of continuing with Lech Poznan and wanted a new exciting challenge.

‘I was getting a little tired of all of Poland after four years and I was homesick,’ he began.

‘Initially when I played for Djurgarden, I wanted to try something new. Now I felt that Poland was not something new anymore. The joy (of playing there) started to disappear, he tells Afronbladet.

Relishing his stay in Poland coalesced with demanding fans, Kebba said: ‘It is very demanding in Poland. A tough climate. The winning mentality is a little different from Sweden. Fans in Poland demand we win every game home and away game,’

Ceesay’s arrival is expected to bolster Djurgarden’s  whose defence is a leaking goal factory. The stopper made his debut in the 2-1 defeat to Kalmar in which fellow countryman and teammate Omar Colley conceded an own goal.
