Midfielder Ibrahim Sorie Barrie says he is enjoying life at Vikingur and is hoping to continue helping the team improving.

The 21-year-old dedicated midfielder scored his first goal for the club in May and has made 12 appearances helping the club to Icelandic Cup semi-finals.

“I’m really happy here and I’m enjoying my football with my teammates. I just want to keep doing well and help the team,” Barrie told Football Sierra Leone UK.

“Vikingur is a very good team with a very good coaching staff too. The level of competition makes it a challenge for me.

“It was a tough start, but with determination and help from my national teammate Kwame Quee, I never give up, I always give my best.”

The young prospect who has earned over 4 caps with Sierra Leone added: “It’s another step in my career in terms of new experiences.”

“Iceland is a very good country peaceful and friendly. I am enjoying the natural hills and with the way God created it.”

“Since I came here, I have played in all the important games, including the pre-season matches.”

“A huge experience for me and I am very grateful for having this opportunity to meet with different nationalities and the positives are that we all get along well.

The FC Johansen player, who was the hero when Sierra Leone knocked out Cameroon during the 2016 Olympic Games football qualifiers in May 2015 in Yaoundé, also paid tribute to the Leone Stars coach John Keister.

“Thanks to God for everything and I want to also highlight my national head coach John Keister who has helped me greatly because most of the things that he was teaching us very similar here.

The versatile midfielder was the skipper of the Sierra Leone side and scored the goal in the 93rd minute that eliminated Cameroon from 2016 Olympic Games football qualifiers in May 2015 under Keister.

He joined the Icelandic second-tier side on loan from FC Kallon in January 2018.
