Paul Kpaka signs for Enosis
One of Sierra Leone’s finest strikers, Paul Kpaka, has signed for Greek side Enosis Neon Paralimni in the Cypriot premier division league from the Belgium side Germinal Beerschot for an undisclosed fee.
The amount of the contract is not yet known but it is confirmed to Sierra Express Media from Enosis press box that the Sierra Leonean will join his fellow country man Abdul Rahman Kamara in the ongoing Greek premier division.
Kpaka with his experience has played for various clubs in Sweden and the Netherlands. During his first season in Belgium, Kpaka was the top scorer in the Jupiler League hitting 28 league goals in the 2002-03 campaign. He won the Ebony Boot, an award given to the top African footballer in Belgium. He signed for fellow Belgian club Genk the next season.
Kpaka was expected to lead Genk to the top two positions in the Jupiler League, and take the club to the UEFA Champions League, but he suffered an excruciating ligament injury during the beginning of the season, which kept him out of football for six months. When he returned from injury, he could no longer secure a place in the starting eleven.
He left the club in the 2006-2007 season and signed for another Belgian club Roeselare. Kpaka made a return to Germinal Beerschot in the summer of 2008. However, after two unsuccessful seasons, his contract was not renewed, and he left Germinal Beerschot on 1 July 2010.
Kpaka is a regular starter for Leone Stars. He made his international debut for Sierra Leone in the 2004 African Nations Cup qualifier against Gabon on October 12, 2002. Sierra Leone won the match 2-0, with Kpaka scoring the first goal. Later on in the match, he got sent off for elbowing an opponent.
