The Major League Soccer’s sixth all-time leading goalscorer Kei Kamara has opened up for the first time after leaving Canadian side Vancouver Whitecaps.

He scored 14 goals for the Whitecaps last season and six assists but was not enough to convince new manager and was told his services were no longer needed at the club.

Kamara, 34, who joined Colorado Rapids was awaiting news from his agent about where he’d be playing in 2019, his ninth professional club.

However, the former Middlesbrough attacker was instead picked by Cincinnati and traded to the Rapids for an international roster spot, on a two-year deal last month.

He told MLS soccer website, “All the energy I spent playing, trying to help the team grow, help the younger players around me, I felt good that I was going to stay in Vancouver for a little longer.”

The attacker added, “Even after the head coach was let go, even though he was the head coach that brought me there. Maybe I was reading the energy wrong.”

“When I got the news that they weren’t interested in keeping me and I was being traded, I was shocked,” Kamara explained.
