SIERRA LEONE. Freetown: Sierra Leone Football legend Mohammed Kallon had his bid for the presidency of the country’s football Association rejected.
The former Inter Milan Forward was nominated by the Urban Districts Football League only for the country’s FA to allege that their application flouted some nominated procedures.
