Kallon braces for toughest challenge in coaching career

FC Kallon boss Mohamed Kallon is set to face a huge challenge of his coaching career when the club he owns squares up against Egyptian side FC Future in their CAF Confederation preliminary second-round second leg on Sunday in Egypt.

The 43-year-old was able to mastermind first round 4-0 aggregate consecutive victory over Les Buffles du Borgou of Benin. 

However, after their first leg 2-0 defeat against Egyptian side FC Future in Liberia, the ex-Inter Milan striker now faces a massive test to overturn the scoreline.

The Egyptian side Future FC took a brilliant first-leg advantage against Sierra Leone’s FC Kallon after a 2-0 win at the SDK stadium in Liberia last Sunday.

As a result, they are within touching distance of a place in the African Confederation Cup next stage.

The former Inter Milan and Monaco forward told Journalist Fajah Barrie: “We’re going to play an open match in Cairo in the return leg – anything can happen in football.”

Kallon’s elder brother, Musa, a member of the Cavaliers technical team, said: “We lost because of naivety and inexperience, but all is not lost. We are going to fight hard to overturn the result in Cairo.”

Fifteen years ago, FC Kallon eliminated Nigerian side Ocean Boys 1-0 on aggregate in the African Champions League preliminary after both sides played to a goalless draw in Nigeria.

The Cavaliers were eliminated by Ivorian Champions Asec Mimosa 3-1, who won both matches to progress.

In the 2012 CAF Confederation Cup, FC Kallon eliminated Cameroon’s Union Sportive de Douala in the preliminary but faced stiff competition against Nigerian Warri Wolves. They won 2-0 on aggregate in the first round.
