BSV Kickers Emden midfielder Ibrahim Sillah has expressed his delight after helping his German side gain promotion to the fourth-tier Regionalliga on Wednesday.

Sillah was in action when BSV Kickers Emden defeated Wandsbeker Concordia 3-1 as they top Oberliga table.

The 27-year-old defensive midfielder, who is set to join the Sierra Leone senior team in Guinea for African Cup Of Nations qualifiers against Nigeria and Guinea-Bissau on Friday, will play the 2022/23 season in the Regionalliga Nord if he stays at the club.

“We’re all so happy yesterday to have finally gotten the job done. It means a lot to this club and its fans,” Sillah told FSL News.

“We deserved to be promoted after a long season of hard work with good chemistry. Everybody at the club worked so hard and played their part in our success in a difficult season.”

Sillah hailed the Kickers fans!

“The fans of Kickers Emden are always great and played a big part in our success. They are there every game at home and away, always singing the motivating songs and supporting us all the way – even if the team is not playing well. That is so motivating and uplifting for us as players.”
