The 21-year old forward joined IFK Norrköping in the camp in Dalarna and played in their 7-0 victory against the local team last Saturday but was absent from the team’s Monday session in the sunshine on Östgötaporten.

“He has a little groin troubles. He has been examined but we do not know yet how serious it is, Norrkoping manager Jens Gustafsson told corren.se after the training tie.

“We’ll see how it goes the rest of the week. We have a small picture of him but it is too small. There is definitely a need to see him more.

Jens Gustafsson was disappointed not to see more of the striker, “deeply unhappy” that Sheka Fofanah does not show up as much as it was originally intended.

The Leone Stars match winner against Sudan who has been described as ‘hungry but damaged’ also told corren.se.

“This is my first time in Europe. I want to play here. This is a big step for me, he stresses while he is watching training from the stands.

“Alhaji Kamara is my friend. He has only said good things about the club IFK Norrköping. I know of course Teteh and Mohamed Bangura,” said Fofanah.

When asked to describe his ability, Fofanah explained: “I’m fast, technical; believed in myself, I work to make my team better. It is a big step in my life to be here.”

Fofanah in four appearances for Sierra Leone has scored twice, one against Gabon in Franceville and Sudan in Freetown in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.
