Today it is revealed that the 20-year-old aggressive striker was close to leaving the former Swedish champions AIK even before an Allsvenkan match.
Reports have it that the former Swedish champions were extremely close to selling the player, after reconsidering they made decision to turn down a bid from Eastern Europe, Moldovan champions and Euro League team FC Sherriff.
Despite the club’s bad economic status at present, they have rejected $5 million from Eastern Europe club, and it is described as a super bid according to reports.
Jens Andersson, AIK’s Sports Director, said “it is true that we had a bid for The Sierra Leonean, Ibrahim Tetteh Bangura and again – It is clear that there is an extremely unique situation where you may bid on a player when he has not even been inside the locker room and not trained in principle. We did not think it was worth the money and we want to retain him. It is a profit definitely. But it is also true that you do not know what you sell in that sense. It can turn out to be a loss. It’s not every day you face situations like this but we have decided to keep him.”
Patrick Mork, the player’s agent said “If they are aiming at a Champions League spot they need to keep their best, It has been an interesting club as each year goes a long way in the European cups. It was during the Olympic qualifier in Liberia Capital that FC Sheriff spotted the player,” he said.
