The 25-year-old claims that the presence of TraianosDellas was a decisive factor in helping him convince about a move to Greek football.Dellas was part of the Greek team that managed to create history by winning the Euro 2004. He is now trying to make a career in management and one of his key signings since becoming a manager is Kamara. The player was on the books of Swedish outfit Hacken BK but he has left the team by mutual consent.

The player has revealed that he had several offers from clubs in Dubai, Qatar, and more. However, he has chosen to move toPanetolikos in order to make further progress in his career.Dellas has been extremely delighted with the arrival of the 25-year-old. His former teammate, Kallon, believes that Kamara has the potential to become a crucial player for the Greek team. Kallon has represented the likes of AS Monaco and Inter Milan in the past. After having played alongside the likes of Rivaldo andDellas in the past, Kallon says that he has seen enough ofKamara to suggest that the 25-year-old will become a crucial player – especially under the management of his former teammate.

Premier League side Liverpool are still searching for a capable replacement for Loris Karius in goal, as per reports from the Merseyside. The club has considered options in Alisson of AS Roma and Jan Oblak of Atletico Madrid. However, these two would surely cost the club a lot and in the end it might be impossible to poach.

Reports coming in claim Coach Jurgen Klopp has identified another shot stopper in Thomas Strakosha of Lazio. Following the major blunders in the Champions League final, The Reds are desperate for a top player that can handle the pressure and perform. Strakosha would cost Anfield about £30 million, which is well within the club’s budget compared to the other two which would require breaking the world record.

Amid report that Greece international SokratisPapastathopoulosis unclear about his future at Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal are in touch with the defender to see if they can lure him to the Emirates to add more verve, experience and strength to their ailing defence which saw them lose a couple of high profile games last season, in bid to be top contenders for this season’s Premier League title which they last won in 2004.


The transfer rumour that has plagued the North London side over the years has reached an alarming rate making it utterly daunting to keep tabs on them. This uncertainty with the Gunners has provided immensely heated debates about the deficiencies, strength and quality of the squad.

A prominent transfer rumour that came to the fore was this summer’s link of the Orange international Virgil van Dijk to the Emirate as touching his excellent and anchoring performances for the Southampton’s defence line last season.

Greek side Olympiakos have reportedly completed the transfer of Nigeria international Emmanuel Emenike from Turkish club Fenerbahce.


The 30-year old make the switch after weeks of being linked with the club.

The player is expected to earn €2 million annually after agreeing to a two year deal with an option of an extra year. The striker confirmed the deal on Wednesday.

“I want to say to our fans that I’m here. I’m here to play and I will always give my best. When I’m on the field, I will give my best, for the club and for the fans,” the player promised.

The player is expected to resume training with his teammates after excelling in the medicals. The rest of the squad are in Belgium for the second phase of their pre-season training. Emenike is expected to join them for the rest of the planned friendly games.

 On March 6 of 2017, Olympiakos decided to sack Paulo Bento from his managerial position in the Greek club which was a very surprising thing to see as the Portuguese coach was able to push Olympiakos to the top of the Greece Superleague.


Prior to the sacking of Paulo Bento, there was another manager from that very same club that was removed from his coaching position in the same season and it was Victor Sanchez.

This means that Olympiakos had switched their head coach at least twice in the season of 2016-17 but it made little to no difference at all in relation to their campaign as the Greek still managed to come out on top and lift their 44th league title which is amazing and shows just how much of a dominance that Olympiakos has had.

Greek club Olympiakos has sacked their coach Paulo Bento after the club suffered a third straight defeat in the Greek league.


However, the club still leads the table by seven points.

Paulo Bento took charge of the team seven months ago when he replaced Victor Sanchez who only managed to coach the team for two games only. Indeed Olympiakos was eliminated from the Champions League qualification stage.

Paulo Bento is the former Portugal coach and managed his national side at the 2014 World Cup. So far Olympiakos has lost only four games out of 23 matches, but for the Olympiakos board, this is simply unacceptable.

Indeed Olympiakos has won the Greek League 15 times since 2000 and the only objective of the Greek side are to become Champion. They feel that if Bento stays at the head of the team, they will be caught by the likes of Panionios who have one game in hand.
