Christian Caulker happy to be back after long absence

Former FC Kallon and Västerås SK stopper, Christian Caulker, has admitted that he is delighted after making two appearances for Fresno Football Club in the United State.

The former Leone Stars first-choice keeper last played for USA third tier league side IFK Maryland in 2016.

The goalkeeper, who is still negotiating a deal with the professional soccer team based in Fresno, California, has made two pre-season appearances for the United Soccer League side this week.

And the 29-year-old is pleased to have once again played top-level football while in negotiation.”I’m close to a deal with this club and I will be very happy to be able to play football again, Caulker told www.footballsierraleone.net

“All I will say thanks to God for giving me this chance to play professional football again.”

He played in the Fresno side that was defeated by LA Galaxy 3-1 in Thursday’s preseason exhibition at UC Santa Barbara’s Harder Stadium.

His first game for the club was in a 3-2 victory against the Premier Development League’s Ventura County Fusion on Monday night.

Fellow Sierra Leonean, Lamin Suma was also signed by the club in December, having spent the 2017 season at Sacramento Republic FC.

The 6 ft keeper was among 15 players and officials suspended indefinitely by the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) over allegations of match-fixing in July 2014.

Caulker has always denied any wrongdoing and FIFA have named a four-man team to investigate the said allegation.
