CF Montréal have confirmed the signing of veteran MLS striker Kei Kamara for the 2022 MLS season with an option year for 2023, the club announced Friday.
The fifth all-time leading scorer has been handed another opportunity to continue in Major League Soccer, where he has scored 130 goals (and 47 assists) across 359 regular-season matches. He’s only three goals behind Jaime Moreno (133) and four behind Jeff Cunningham (134) in the leaderboard.
“In the absence of numerous attacking options through either injury or illness, namely that of young forward Ivy Brisma, who had a strong preseason training camp, we had to take measures to strengthen the roster,” sporting director Olivier Renard said in a release. “Kei is a highly experienced player in MLS whose offensive abilities will help us both on the pitch and in the locker room with our young group of players. We’re happy to welcome him to the club.”
It’s Kamara’s ninth MLS team after successful spells with the Columbus Crew, Sporting Kansas City and more. Kamara, 37, scored five goals in fourteen matches for HIFK Fotboll in Finland last season before leaving the club.
He was part of the Sierra Leone side during the just concluded 2022 Africa Cup of Nations, where he missed the decisive penalty that could have qualified the West African Nations to the round of sixteen for the first time in their history.
