Gambian striker back after suspension over violent conduct

By Sulayman Bah

Scorpions’ striker Pa Amat Dibba has returned to action after serving a 3-game ban in Sweden, Foroyaa Sport can report.

The 29-year-old earned his marching orders just minutes after his club Hammarby trailed Jonkoping Sodra in a top flight duel last month.

Pa got sent off for an unsporting behavior before the league’s disciplinary committee slapped a further three-game suspension on the Gambian upon reviewing the incident.

In a match that would later see his club drop three points after Sodra held on to their fragile lead to game’s end, an infuriated Dibba uncharacteristically launched an ugly elbow into his opponent’s face, forcing Hammarby to play rest of the game with ten men after being shown red.

The striker offered a groveling apology for his conduct and made a return to football for the first time on Monday with a bang, netting the third goal in his club’s 3-0 win over Orebo.

Dibba is on seven goals making him joint highest scoring African in the Swedish Premier League with Sierra Leone’s Buya Turay.
