Sierra Leone’s Bangura & Cambuur relegated from Eredivisie

Sierra Leone left-back Alex Bangura and Cambuur have officially been relegated from the Eredivisie after their 3-0 defeat to FC Utrecht on Saturday evening with three games remaining. 

Bangura, 23, who extended his Cambuur contract until 2024 last year, will have to play second-tier football next season if he stays at the club.

A six-game losing run left the bottom-of-the-table Yellow-Blues on 16 points with three games left to play, 12 points adrift of 15th-placed Emmen and 16th-placed Excelsior in the relegation playoff spot.

After five years in the Eerste Divisie, Cambuur was promoted to the Eredivisie in 2020-21 and finished ninth last term during a respectable first season back in the top flight, but they have only won four of their 31 games during a disastrous campaign this time around.

He joined Cambuur from Feyenoord’s youth academy in 2018, has made almost a hundred appearances for SC Cambuur.

The Sierra Leone International has been an integral figure for the Dutch top tier in the last three seasons.
