Report: Fulham's Aboubakar Kamara Arrested After Incident At Club Training Ground

Fulham's Aboubakar Kamara has been reportedly arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm after an incident at the club's training ground.

The Daily Mail claim that the striker was arrested on Monday evening after getting into a fight at the Motspur Park training base, with another member of Fulham's staff believed to be involved in the confrontation.

The 23-year old had been forbidden from training with the first team squad by manager Claudio Ranieri due to his disruptive influence. He arrived at the club base that day intending to discuss his future at the club, but the situation quickly deteriorated.

While they did not confirm the identity of the individual involved, the Metropolitan Police released this statement regarding the incident:

Police were called to a training ground in New Malden, shortly after 17.00hrs on Monday, 21 January to reports of a fight.

Officers attended. One man, in his 20s, was arrested on suspicion of ABH and criminal damage. He has been taken into custody in a south London police station. Enquiries continue.

Fulham have also released a statement regarding the matter, saying that 'the subject who was arrested is banned indefinitely from Motspur Park and all club activities.'

Kamara has been in the news on a number of occasions over the past few weeks, and not for the right reasons. He famously refused to let designated penalty taker Aleksander Mitrovic take a spot kick against Huddersfield last month, before going on to miss it himself.

The pair were also involved in an altercation during a team yoga session earlier this month, which led to Kamara's expulsion from the first team.

His attitude has not impressed manager Claudio Ranieri since the Italian's arrival at Craven Cottage and he is not part of his plans for the remainder of the season. He is likely to leave the club this month, with a move to Turkey mooted.
